D2D Chat stands for “Device to Device messaging”. It is a messenger designed to give you the ultimate privacy with control of your identity, and messages.
With D2D Chat, you can send messages, photos, videos, and files of any type, as well as having audio or video calls. It may sound like any other messenger, but there is a big difference. All your communications travel directly from your device to the receiver’s device without ever going through our servers.
D2D Chat is for anyone who wants to protect their identity, and maintain their privacy when messaging or calling.
You can use it in your professional or personal life
- Professional Life: People in business are always concerned about their privacy. They have a lot of information which is confidential to them and their business, which could be detrimental to them if exposed. D2D allows you to carry out your business, having professional and confidential conversations knowing that all communications are as good as the spoken word. No online records.
- Personal Life: It is important to keep your conversations private as we constantly read about the consequences for people when their private life is exposed. When you meet someone new you can keep safe with D2D as you do not have to exchange your number to communicate.
No matter who you are, with D2D Chat, you can be sure all your messages are kept strictly between you and the receiver.
D2D Chat came about after realising that most of our communications occur on messengers which are not secure. As we grow increasingly dependent on messengers for all types of communications we need systems in place to protect our messaging privacy.
During a message’s journey there are several times when they are subject to potential threats. This could lead to confidential information being exposed resulting in serious consequences at both a professional and personal level
The key areas where messages are at threat of exposure are:
- On servers
- On the device
- During transit
D2D Chat is very different from other messengers, but simple to use. All messages and communications travel directly from your device, to the receiver’s device without ever going through our servers. This means that we have no record of who you are, who you are contacting or what you communicate.
Also, we do not synchronise your device contacts with D2D, which means you have the power to decide who you want to chat with.
We have used three different methods of encryption to ensure all your communications are kept strictly between you and the receiver. These three different methods of encryption mean it would be difficult for anyone to hack your communications, including us. As your messages, do not travel through our servers, we have no access to your communications
D2D offers you triple layer encryption to ensure that your messages and other communications remain strictly between you and the receiver.
Through the D2D registration process you are issued with two keys. A public key that you share (automatically) when you connect with other D2D users, and a private key which (automatically) remains personal to you at all times. Every D2D contact that you communicate with will have given you their public key (automatically) and you will have given them yours. Each message sent is encrypted with the specific D2D contact’s public key. It cannot be opened unless there is handshake between the public key that you have used to encrypt the message and the private key that they have to open the message.
Every message you send also has a secondary encryption process, which is sent to the recipient along with a randomly generated key that changes for every message you send.
The third layer of encryption occurs during the transmission between the message leaving your device and being received by the other party. This is called Transport Layer Security. (Remember with D2D the message is only sent between devices and never via a server).
D2D Chat is supported on most Android and iOS devices. We support all Android and iOS phones that meet the following requirement:
- Your Android phone is running Android 4.2 or later
- Your iOS phone is running OS version 8 or later
Our main mission is to provide you with ultimate privacy and control, so when you register with D2D Chat, you will find that we do not ask for your phone number. The only details we require for you to create a D2D Chat account are:
- Name (You can give a pseudo name rather than your real name)
- Email Address (You can generate a new one and only use it for recovery of your passwords on D2D)
- Pin identity (You create your own)
- Password (You create your own)
You are required to enter a pin identity as this is your way of staying safe in the messaging world. When you want to add contacts onto D2D Chat, you do not need to give your contacts your phone number; instead you just give them your pin identity.
- Why do I have to create a password?
We ask you to create a password in case you want to log into your D2D Chat account using another device.
- Why do I have to give an email address?
We need your email address so that if you want to burn the app (in case you lose your phone) we will be able to verify it is really you who wishes to burn the app, as we send you an email link to allow you to activate app burn. Although we have your email ID we cannot link this to you as you have registered with a PIN and the name that you chose to register with may have no trace to you.
None. The only information we have are the details that you gave for registration. We never ask for your phone number and you can use a pseudo name to register. Your messages are not stored on any servers . Because of this we don’t have copies of any of your messages, media or documents that you’ve sent, received or stored locally on your device.
To protect you, we’ve developed a simple and safe way for you to connect with your friends, colleagues, customers or other contacts. Rather than sharing your phone number with them, just share your pin to connect with them.
To add people into your D2D Chat contact list you can either enter their PIN details manually, or if you are in the same location as them, you can scan their unique D2D QR code.
If you have just registered onto D2D Chat, you will not have any contacts. We do not synchronise your device contacts with D2D. This protects your privacy, and you remain in control of who you connect with on D2D. To add contacts to D2D, see ‘How to add contacts on D2D Chat?’
All communications take place between the two devices (phones) and not via a server. For this reason, each of those devices (phones) needs to have a good internet connection.
To send messages you will both require good internet connection. Any messages which you try to send when the connection is not good will remain on your phone until you both have a good connection.
You will see Red, Green or Blue next to the messages which you send.
Red: Message has not been sent
Green: Message been received at the other end
Blue: Message has been read by the receiver
Green: You are connected on the internet and on D2D
White: You are connected on the internet but not on D2D
In addition to being able to decide who you want to communicate with on D2D Chat, you have access to over 13 privacy features, each one giving you control of your messages even after they have left your device. Use Stop Screenshot, Stop Copy/ Forward/ Share to prevent your contacts from taking screenshots of your conversations, or sharing your messages with others. You can also command your messages to self-destruct from yours and the receivers end with Blink and Blink Chat. If you have sent a message to the wrong person or by mistake, you can take it back at any time with Extract, even after the receiver has read it. For more information on the other features, take a look at the website. If you’ve already downloaded D2D then check out the ‘Help Centre’.
You can transfer a file up to 10 MB in size
You can send invitations from the app to users on other platforms inviting them to join in an audio or video call. The receiver must have a chrome browser.
