Anonymity guaranteed - no registration

There is no connection to a telephone number and no collection of user identification data. The TeleGuard-ID is your very personal identification number that you need in order to connect with your friends. Every TeleGuard user receives an ID number and a QR code, which can be sent out to get in touch with others.

Designed to be the most secure messenger in the world

TeleGuard's focus is on protecting privacy and confidential communication. TeleGuard is the secure messenger from Swisscows. Swisscows has set itself the task of protecting its users from data misuse in every situation. As the smartphone is the most widely used medium in the world nowadays, a secure messenger is indispensable.

Highly secure and modern server

All servers are located in the data centers in Switzerland. A complex encryption system is used for all transmitted data and absolutely no user data is stored on the servers. Everything is absolutely anonymous.

That's why TeleGuard is better than the others

TeleGuard encrypts every message and voice call with the one of the best encryption algorithm currently available: SALSA 20. Since our servers are in Switzerland, we are not subject to the data protection laws of the EU / USA and do not have to pass on any data.

How is my privacy secured?

HTTPS, end-to-end encryption, deletion of messages from the server after reading. No user data, neither IP address nor other, is recorded or stored.

A better alternative to Signal?

The privacy model is better than most other apps. I am hoping this becomes more stable in the near-term. One issue I am having is receiving notifications from a user in Mainland. This user is also having issues with receiving notifications.

Thank you for your feedback! Please update the app to the latest version.

I like the privacy (and newest update)

Love the privacy aspect. I wish there was a way when clicking links you could anonymously preview it like in the swisscows app.

I wish we could customize what the screen looks like. A dark mode would be excellent. Maybe even different colors.

Update: There is now a dark mode! My eyes won’t be strained anymore and I’m really glad. There’s also these things called Clubs, which I’m sure is the reason the rating went from general use to 17+ only. I don’t really use the Clubs and they’re a nuisance to have, but I’m glad I can toggle them off. I still love this app.

Thank you for your feedback! The information has been forwarded to the developers to consider implementation.

As easy as it can be

This app is really serious. Beats all those E2E chat apps by miles. No phone number, email address needed to sign up. Swiss based for easier data privacy regulations.

Thank you developers.
