Enemy shelling directly affects the operation of mobile networks. Special mobile messengers that work offline, namely without an Internet connection, can help you stay in touch with family and friends during difficult times.


"Suspilne" media has prepared a selection of applications that use Bluetooth / Wi-Fi connection and build so-called mesh networks so that we can always stay connected.


Pay attention! They only work if the phones are close to each other.


The most popular offline messengers


dComms


Created by the Canadian company eQualitie, the dComms application is suitable for Android and iOS devices. It can also be used through a web browser interface. Among the advantages, the application provides encrypted messaging and has secure group chats. Disadvantages - no voice messages.


Please note that the messenger works only where a particular server is configured, specifically in:

• Kyiv;

• Lviv;

• Mykolaiv;

• Odessa;

• Poltava;

• Rivne;

• Kharkiv;

• Kherson


Bridgefy


This messenger can also be installed on Android and iOS smartphones. With its help, you could communicate with people within a 100-meter radius.


Among the advantages of the application are an encrypted channel and the ability to send messages to all users nearby. Having to keep it on all the time will make it difficult to use.


Briar


You can install the application only for Android smartphones. It works both via the Internet and Bluetooth. Among its advantages, Briar doesn’t need a connection to a central server and can synchronize messages on users' gadgets.


Voyer


In addition to text messages, Vojer can send voice messages and notify the delivery status. Such functionality is extremely important when there is no stable connection.


In the absence of Internet and mobile communication, we should use all methods to restore communication with family.

We will remind you! Previously, we wrote how to connect to national roaming and told why the mobile connection disappears after the lights turn off.
