Every known messaging app available in the Google Play Store and Apple App Store requires a phone number to create an account and for further communication use.
For the first time ever, we met a new messaging app called “Session” which don’t ask your phone number to start using the service. It is an open-source messaging app which is available for Android, and iOS.
Coming to the details of the app, Session is an end-to-end encrypted messaging app which strictly obeys its policies and doesn’t collect the user’s sensitive metadata.
Session is a new breed of a private messenger, built on a unique network of user-operated servers spread all over the world. With no central servers, Session can’t leak or sell your data. And with Session’s private routing protocols, your messages are completely anonymous. No one ever knows who you’re talking to, what you’re saying, or even your IP address.
Technically, Session is an advanced version of the Signal messaging app, which is quite popular among the privacy and security enthusiasts.
The company is pretty sure about its anonymity feature and ensures no data breaches and no digital footprints. The Sessions app has given detailed aims to provide the following protections to the user.
- Sender anonymity.
- Recipient anonymity.
- Data integrity
- End-to-end encryption.
Like other regular messaging apps it has similar messaging features. Session supports group chats up to 10 people conversation and for a bigger crowd, it supports an open group to connect as many people as you want.
It has support for voice messages if you want to deliver the message in a quick way. Also, it lets send docs, files, images through the network which don’t have any access to them. It is just private between you and the receiver.
