Simvacy today announced the launch of its solution to guard the privacy of mobile phone users. Simvacy addresses the problems associated with messaging apps requiring users to disclose personally identifiable information.
For the “privilege” of using apps such as WhatsApp, Telegram, Signal, WeChat Clubhouse and others, users must supply their identifiable phone numbers and other private data. A Simvacy number acts as a person’s digital identity, protecting their unique mobile number for 100% privacy, without having to download yet another app. Simvacy simply provides a separate secure phone number that is not publically connected to a person’s identity.
Following countless attacks on the media and journalists across the globe, the company is supporting the press by giving away Simvacy numbers for free.
“The critical issue with using any social messaging app is the app company’s requirement for your mobile number for the use of that app,” said CEO and Co-Founder Jack Flanagan. “People don’t really think about giving their personal information to the app companies because they want to use them and assume that the app will be safe. Otherwise, how could these apps be available from provider stores? Unfortunately, and seemingly without much alternative, we share our mobile numbers freely and without concern for privacy.”
Flanagan continued, “Your data is yours. With Simvacy, you won’t need a different SIM card, provide any personal details or download and any apps – you can even pay in crypto. Simply choose a number from the United States, United Kingdom or Canada. Finally, mobile users can have security and privacy across their messaging apps. A person’s phone number represents a massive risk of personal privacy and identity.”
Simvacy’s ongoing mission is to help people regain control of their mobile identities. The solution was designed and built for client security.
