Why popular messaging apps are not safe to use
You’re most probably using Whatsapp and FB messenger because most of your contacts use it. But did you know that these messaging apps steal and sell your data to third parties, government authorities, and advertising companies? Well, now you know! So, if you’re a privacy advocate and care about your data, it’s time for you to switch to a more secure messaging app. Pinngle Messenger, for instance, uses data encryption to secure all your data, messages and calls. With Pinngle Messenger, no one will be able to access any of your data, not even Pinngle Messenger!
How to call Italy in 3 ways using Pinngle Messenger
Pinngle to Pinngle free international calls.
Pinngle to Pinngle calls are completely free. That being said, anyone who has pinngle installed on their phones can make free international online calls to or from Italy. You will also be able to video call with high quality, send text messages, share multimedia, any types of files, podcasts, playlists, documents up to any size and any format. Above all that, the app is encrypted, meaning no one can access your conversations, data or calls. Not even Pinngle Messenger.
Pinngle-out to make cheap international calls
Pinngle-out is the cheapest way to make international calls. This feature will allow you to make cheap international calls anywhere you want. People use this feature to make cheap international calls to landlines and to people who don’t have Pinngle installed on their phones and for those who want to call people that don’t own a smartphone. For you to be able to use Pinngle-out, you need to have an internet connection and some credits in your balance. The best thing about this feature is that only the person who’s making the call has to have an internet connection, the one receiving the call doesn’t need to be connected to the internet.
Virtual numbers to receive international calls
Here’s another way to receive international calls! Unlike Pinngle-out, this paid feature allows you to only receive calls whether it’s international or not. Pinngle’s virtual numbers can also be viewed as disposable virtual numbers where you can use them temporarily, or as a backup phone number. You can use your virtual number to receive unlimited calls for free. Here’s how virtual numbers on Pinngle work. If you live in Italy and want to receive calls from your relatives in Spain, then you should buy a Spanish virtual number. If you live in Spain but you want to receive calls from your relatives in Italy, then you should buy an Italian virtual number. All you need to do is order your desired country number once, and receive free calls for months depending on your subscription plan.
