UK privacy-first messaging and social network app launch

UK tech company inLinx has announced the launch of its new mobile messaging platform LinxApp.

Founded by Zabi Zamir who launched LinxApp in direct response to tackle the industry giants, the company, which has offices in London, Manchester, and Stoke-on-Trent, is aiming to take a huge chunk of the mobile messaging market.

Over 95% of UK adults own a mobile phone, and worldwide 2.52 billon people use a mobile communications app, with the figure expected to rise to 3 billion in 2022. With the recent news that Facebook has purchased WhatsApp and fears over data and privacy, LinxApp is hoping to take a 10% share of this market.

This real time messaging platform offers users ad free, private conversations in an instant. Designed to not only connect people with their friends and family but to expand their social network.

The LinxApp chatroom feature is unique in that it is the first mobile messaging app to include a free chatroom, where users can take control of their privacy and log on with their full name and personal information or a nickname and avatar. LinxApp will then protect user’s personal information even in one-on-one conversations, until the user is ready to add them to their private network. The chatroom function, which can be disabled or enabled at any time, allows users to participate in and start discussions with anyone, anywhere, be it locally or around the globe.

LinxApp offers users the chance to change every single aspect within a conversation to give it a personal feel, from backgrounds, text, replies, read receipts and more, to allow people to personalise the app to suit them. The app also gives users the chance to save and organise all their links, conversations, and photos in handy go to tabs, to make finding past communications easier.

LinxApp will not read or scan any conversations and the app will always be ad free, so no data is shared with third parties. Instead, users can focus on what messaging apps were first made for, communication – be that with friends, family, or new people.

Zabi Zamir says “With news of WhatsApp changing its data sharing policy to tie in with Facebook and corporate giants, such as Elon Musk, publicly moving away from these messaging services, users are now looking for alternative ways to safely interact. The launch of LinxApp couldn’t come at a better time as more people look to turn away from current platforms to a message system that won’t make them feel that ‘big brother’ is watching them.”

Appealing to the latest generation of social app users, LinxApp has the function for users to take pictures and then place fun filters at the click of a button. The real time messaging app comes with a host of GIFs, stickers, and preset messages reactions, including a choice of emojis and voice messages to take the conversation outside the virtual realm and make them as realistic as it can be.

The app will also feature the ability to host group chats and leave voice messages.
