Once dIM is installed you never have to access the internet again to send and receive messages. Stay in airplane mode as long as you would like and chat away.
How It Works
dIM uses Bluetooth
to maintain a connection to other nearby
users of dIM. When you send a message to
your friend it is sent through the Bluetooth connection of other people!
The range of
Bluetooth Low Energy is 100 meters or 330
feet. If your friend is further away, the
messsage is sent through other dIM users' connection if there are any. Otherwise the message is delivered next time a connection is made.
Add New Contacts
Open dIM on your
phone and navigate to the QR code screen.
Let your friends scan your QR code, then
scan theirs. This enables
you to send each
other messages through the dIM network.
decentralized and all phones play an equal
part in keeping the network running. This
makes your phone a node in the dIM network.
This ensures network stability and that the
network is always available.
No Data Collection
Your data belongs to you. As such no user data is collected, no connections are made to any servers and no logs are created. The content of your messages are encrypted for only you and your contact to see.
