    I’m surprised more people aren’t aware of Wire Messenger. They too don’t require your phone number. The app is Open Source, end-to-end encryption, privacy-respecting, do not track, collect data, share data.

    They have clients for Linux, Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS. Even runs in a browser. I’ve been using it now for a while on both Linux/Mint (32-bit) and Android. I started using it directly as an old-school IM client (we don’t have many of these anymore) but decided to install on Android too (they don’t copy contacts without permission and can still use it w/o phone number).

    Texting, Video chat, Voice over IP, attachments, drawing over pictures… it’s got it all. You guys should look into them.

      I just downloaded wire messenger and the first thing they ask for is you phone number. Frustrating. Don’t know what gary was talking about

        Yes you are right! If you want to register using email address, try to register at using a desktop computer.

    Awesome. These apps could be very useful.

  4. The features you tell is very special for every user Because many users want to use texting application without providing their phone number. Here you hit the centre for that kind of people who need this very badly. Keep updating this kind of post.

    Most users prefers to use Skype over other texting apps because it’s very old, trusted and reliable.

    At least Skype and Discord can any day demand a phone number to be able to log in.

    Previously I provided my phone number and got hacked with all the business conversations and I changed to a new number. Wondering if I use these apps will get them a chance to hack on my phone again?

    MyChat does not require phone number. This system aslo has own server.
