Zangi new registration. What’s a Zangi Number? Privacy advancements.

Very recently we’ve changed the registration process on Zangi. And added “Zangi Number”.






AN OUTLINE OF ALL THE CHANGES

– All you need from this article is right here- 

  • For privacy reasons, Zangi has opted out of phone registration; users don’t need to fill out their personal phone number anymore.
  • Instead of phone numbers now users will register with more reliable authentication options: such as email, Google & Apple ID.
  • Those who had phone number accounts before this change can still sign back in, but will have to request a PIN from support@zangi.com, if they had never set a password.
  • Those who register with our authentication options will get their very own Zangi number.
  • Afterward, send invites to friends to connect directly, or just pass around your Zangi number to friends.
  • Anyone can audio-video call one another, message each other and do everything else with Zangi numbers.
  • Zangi numbers are an easier way to contact and connect with each other. Email/Google/Apple ID will be used more for signing in/out.

Zangi Before: Required Phone#

A phone number/email was needed.

Before Zangi was like any other messenger app. We required you to sign up with your phone number. In the last few years, we then added the option to register with an email address, if that’s what you preferred.



Zangi Now: Secure Authentication

We don’t require your phone number.

We have switched to more reliable authentication options: such as email address, Google & Apple ID. If you don’t see the latter options yet, that’s means we’re still haven’t released the latest app update, or you might be using an older OS version.

How does this change the app’s logic?

Not having a number registration option anymore is definitely a huge change for old and new users.

  • Registration might seem more confusing/complicated, but it’s really not. People are simply used to phone number registration.
  • This change will make Zangi so much more private than ever before.
  • People don’t have to share their personal phone numbers, and they can use Zangi for their most personal/ work-related/ confidential conversations.
  • Users will now have “secret” numbers!

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.
