ginlo (previously SIMSme) is the secure messenger for private communication, made in Germany. Your alternative to US-based messengers.

+++ ginlo. Limitless communication without side effects. +++

With ginlo, you reconquer your privacy and benefit from the opportunities of digital communication more than ever.
The ginlo benefits at a glance:
+ Secure, fully encrypted communication
+ Easy to use
+ No tracking, no profiling, no ads
+ Made & hosted in Germany
+ Compliant with German data protection law and the GDPR
+ Customer care with heart – we’re here to help

What if you’ve used SIMSme so far? Your password, existing chats and groups, subscribed content channels… all this will remain as it is, so you can seamlessly continue to use it.
Your SIMSme ID becomes your ginlo ID and your SIMSme Private and Business contacts are automatically on board.

+++ WHY GINLO? +++

ginlo protects your privacy and encrypts all your data with the strongest algorithms. Not just during transport (end-to-end), but also on the local devices. And thanks to this full encryption, we as the provider have no access at all.

ginlo isn’t another ad-based service. With ginlo for private users, we rely on a traditional business model and finance it via the ginlo Business app, the secure messenger for companies.

We, Brabbler AG, are based in Munich and thus act under German legislation. Your encrypted data is exclusively hosted on German servers. GDPR-compliant.

ginlo protects your privacy and offers everything what the digital communication heart desires:
- Real-time messaging
- One-to-one and group chats
- Share videos, images, voice messages, and locations
- Send files of any format (PDF, PPTX, MP3, DOCX, ZIP, etc.)
- Send messages the James Bond way: “This message will self-destruct.”
- Back to the future: Send scheduled messages
- Stay on top of your messages with the Reply feature
- Subscribe to your favorite blogs and magazines (content channels)
- Communicate anonymously using your ginlo ID
- Confirm a contact’s identity by scanning their QR code
- Display your online status (optional)
and much more.

How about some James Bond feeling? “This message will self-destruct.” You can set a countdown so your message, image, or video will only be visible to the recipient for a short time or you can select an expiration date and time.

“Back to the future”, please. Been so busy you forgot to congratulate a friend for their birthday? With ginlo, that’s a thing of the past. Just schedule a message – and your reminders, birthday wishes, and the like are automatically sent at the date and time you define.

Group chats can quickly become quite a mess. So how can you stay on top of all the messages in there? That’s as easy as pie: Just use the Reply feature to answer directly to a particular message. Voila! Everyone always knows to what message you refer to.

What’s New

Version 3.2

- The new "Export Chat" function lets you decide which chats to save or forward as text file.
- Your message must not be overlooked? No problem: Simply mark it as important and it will then be visually highlighted in the chat history and in the push notification.
- Calling contacts or writing an e-mail made easy: one click on the mobile phone number or e-mail address in the contact details is enough.
- After last version’s quality improvements to videos, we’ve now also increased the quality of sent images.
- Ringtones work fine again: ginlo now remembers your selected tone until you choose a different one.
- And for all Italian language enthusiasts: The app is available in Italian again. To try it out, simply change the system language to "Italian".

Sehr gute Alternative!

SIMSme biete alle nötigen Funktionen für einen guten Messenger. Sehr zu empfehlen.
Leider habe ich nur einen nicht ganz so kleinen Bug gehabt.
Ich hatte bei mir (iPhone X, iOS 11.4) die Funktionen „Passwort beim Start abfragen“ und „TouchID verwenden“ aktiviert (probehalber).
Leider ist SIMSme dann bei jedem Start direkt wieder abgestürzt. Nur das erneute installieren der App konnte den Fehler beheben.
Ansonsten bin ich sehr zufrieden :)

Sehr gute App, habe nur ein paar Anmerkungen

- Möglichkeit, durch wischen durch mehrere gesendete Bilder zu gehen
- Möglichkeit, Bilder automatisch runterzuladen

Developer Response ,

Hallo und danke für die Verbesserungsvorschläge, die wir gerne aufgreifen. Die Möglichkeit Bilder automatisch zu sichern gibt es schon über die Einstellungen > Chats > Medien automatisch sichern. Viele Grüße, Team SIMSme
