Why doesn't the signal app encrypt sms message by default?

    I just downloaded the signal app on my phone to see what all noise is about. Come to find out as soon as you get the app up and running it asks if I want to send a insecure sms. So than why is the sms messages not encrypt to begin with? Isn't this app suppose to be all mighty and secure?
