How The Bridgefy Offline Messaging App Works
By using Bluetooth, smartphones can connect over a range of 330 feet (100 meters), like this:
This is a considerable distance, specially when you’re at a crowded music festival, at a sports stadium, or out hiking.
One-To-One Long Distance
You can chat over even larger distances, as long as there are more Bridgefy users between you and the person you want to reach. Like this:
These “hops”, also called a mesh network, can go on indefinitely! The people in the middle don’t have access to your messages, have to perform any action whatsoever, or have to be in your contacts list.
Another cool feature is found within your Bridgefy app, on the “Broadcast” tab. Once you’re inside this chat room, you’ll be able to text with anybody around you that is also using the Bridgefy app, even if they’re not on your contacts list! It’s great for natural disasters, sharing information during a music concert, or at a sports game. It works like this:
Important note: the Bridgefy broadcast messages are NOT encrypted!
