You may or may have not yet noticed that NOW all new users get a UNIQUE Zangi Number upon registration, instead of having to provide their personal phone number to sign up. This a new security measure we’ve recently added.
For all of you existing users, nothing has changed for you. Just make sure to set a password for your account from Settings➝ Your Profile. This is because signing back in has become a little tougher without a password.
For new users, you’ve surely seen that after registering with email, you get a special Zangi Number.
In this article we would like to touch more upon what is a Zangi Number and how to use it to connect with friends.
What is a Zangi Number?
You don’t need to provide your personal mobile number to use Zangi. After registering with email, you get a UNIQUE Zangi Number. Share this number only with the people you trust and with family & friends.
Zangi Numbers start with 871 or +871 (no difference), are 12 digits long, and are randomly and uniquely generated.
Where to find your Zangi Number?
You can always find your Zangi number from your app Settings or Contacts sections.

Why we’ve made this change?
We’ve made this change for privacy reasons. We want Zangi messenger not only to be highly protected with 3-leveled encryption and other security measures, but we want Zangi to also be seen as a PRIVATE SPACE. https://zangi.com/news/en/all-about-privacy-encryption-zangi-secure-messaging-app/
Why don’t other messengers work like this?
So why don’t other popular messengers remove Phone Number Registration as well?
- Because some messengers collect such data about users.
- For most others, phone registration is the easiest way for the most number of users to sign up and connect to their apps.
- They prefer: more business, ease > over privacy measures.
It’s not an easy decision that we’ve made. But we’ve made it for all the right reasons.
