Bridgefy Is a Messaging App That Lets You Chat Without Internet
If you’re living in an area where there is a poor internet connection or no connection at all. Or, there come some circumstances when the internet connection gets suspended either due to a natural calamity or due to any Government imposed ban, then you need to find a way to chat without internet with your loved ones.
Bridgefy – Offline Messaging
Bridgefy is a mobile messaging app that lets you communicate with friends and family when you don’t have access to the Internet. It is ideal for music festivals, sports stadiums, rural communities, natural disasters, travelling abroad, Govt imposed ban (over non-violent protests and fear of an uprising) and much more.
This is the same messaging app used by Hong Kong protestors to evade internet censorship imposed by China. And it has now started to gain popularity in India.
How does Bridgefy work?
Before we talk about how does the app work, it is worth noting that the app requires an active internet connection the first time you install it and setup Bridgefy on your phone.
So, there are three ways Bridgefy works:
Person to Person Mode
In this (one-to-one) mode, all you need to do is to turn on your Bluetooth antenna and chat privately with friends that are within 330 feet (100 meters) of you.
It could come in handy to communicate a message to your neighbour during a disaster or help connect friends in a huge gathering.
Using this (one-to-one long-distance) mode, you can chat with people more than 330 feet from you by connecting through other Bridgefy users found in the middle.
Example: person 1 can talk to person 3 if person 2 is in the middle, making the possible distance of 660 feet (200 meters). The same goes for an unlimited number of people in the chain.
This feature sets Bridgefy apart from traditional mobile networks as more people use Bridgefy, the wider the network and range of the app become, unlike mobile networks where an increase in the number of users causes network congestion. You can see the range expands to 1,320 feet if five users are using the app at the location.
Don’t worry! Your messages are safe and can’t be read by those people in the middle.
Here, the Broadcast mode allows you to send messages to anyone around you even if the recipient is not in your contact list. This feature works best to quickly communicate a piece of information to people around you – say in a protest or music concert.
To use simply go into the Broadcast section and send messages to every Bridgefy user around you at the same time, even if you don’t have them on your contacts list!
Use your Internet connection to chat with friends anywhere in the world that also have a connection.
If you’re an app developer, you can integrate the Bridgefy SDK so your users can enjoy your apps even if they don’t have an Internet connection! Visit www.bridgefy.com for more information.
