Respect for your privacy is our duty. When we start MobiTalk, we’re building our Services with a set of strong privacy principles in mind.
Your messages are yours, and we can’t read them. We’ve built privacy, end-to-end encryption, and other security features into MobiTalk. When your messages are end-to-end encrypted, we and third parties can’t read them.
Registration. You must register for our Services using accurate data, provide your current mobile phone number, and, if you change it, update this mobile phone number using our in-app change number feature. You agree to receive text messages and phone calls (from us or our third-party providers) with codes to register for our Services.
Address Book. You provide us the phone numbers of MobiTalk users in your mobile phone address book on a regular basis. You confirm you are authorized to provide us such numbers to allow us to provide our Services.
