Difference between Freedom Chat and texting?

About Freedom Chat Messaging App

Freedom Chat was created to give everyone control over their digital lives. With Freedom Chat you can communicate with whomever you want, protect your data, avoid having your conversations “leaked” and safeguard against cybercrime. Freedom Chat gives you the Freedom to speak to who you want when you want without fear of tyrants or big tech listening in to your conversations. 

Your Conversations Belong To You

Nobody should be able to exploit your data or your conversations, period. Our unique features and business model are based upon this fundamentally stronger definition of privacy. We even have a white paper and an encryption analysis with snippets of our code that details our end-to-end encryption process. 

End-to-end encryption (E2EE) is crucial for modern messaging and is designed to prevent anyone other than the intended recipient of a message from reading it. When E2EE is not implemented (either knowingly or improperly), not only can the provider of the messaging app you’re using be able to read your messages but malicious hackers and even government agencies can too. In fact, research estimates that over 5.5 billion unencrypted texts are sent each day! This takes us to our next point—traditional texting. 

Traditional Texting

Texting, or SMS (short message service) is a method of communication that sends messages between cellphones. SMS was first developed in 1984.  The first text message was sent years later on December 3rd, 1992. Today, SMS is the most widely-used data application in the world, with 81% of mobile phone subscribers using it. Like we mentioned in the previous paragraph, research estimates that OVER 5.5 unencrypted texts are sent each day! That means that all of those images, videos and messages being sent can be read by not only government agencies but malicious hackers as well. 

SMS vs. MMS 

MMS stands for Multimedia Messaging Service. It’s a type of texting that involves videos, images, GIFs and up to 1,600 characters. MMS is an extension of the core SMS protocol, and it was developed to enable the transmission of multimedia content via text message rather than just plain text. That is the main difference between SMS and MMS texts. 

iMessage Vs. Google Messaging

Since 2023, Both iMessage and Google Messaging claim their messages are end-to-end encrypted. We say claim because quite honestly we are not sure and are VERY skeptical. What we do know for sure is that any message between an Android user and an iPhone user is not encrypted AT ALL. Yikes. And in regard to being skeptical, I mean, how many times have you texted something to your spouse, family or friend and then are shown ads all across the web for exactly what was sent? All the time, right? According the Apple’s website the following data may be collected and linked to your identity in regard to using iMessage: 

  • Contact info
  • Identifiers (whatever the hell that means)
  • Search history 
  • Location 

So in this case, and in our opinion iMessage doesn’t seem very private. Neither does Google Messaging which has a very similar privacy policy. Messages should be end-to-end encrypted, with no storage of messages on the server, and there should be absolutely no commercial use of user data. 

Freedom Chat's Unrivaled Features

Freedom Chat combines new and innovative features into one user-friendly dashboard. With Freedom Chat you can disable screenshots with Screenshot Protect, edit, unsend and self-destruct messages, verify end-to-encryption, enable “sensors off” (which deactivates your camera and microphone for ultimate privacy) and so much more. We’ve worked incredibly hard to develop all of the features you’ve come to expect from your current messaging apps like react to messages with emoji’s, read receipts and do not disturb while also adding more privacy-focused features like Screenshot Protect and Sensors Off in a 100% private and secure environment.
