In the light of recent revelations about breaches in data security, notably the Cambridge Analytica crack and use of Facebook users’ data and the hefty fines against WhatsApp for privacy rule violations, tensions are high in the social media and messenger world. This tension can be felt around the world, but Luxembourg’s Wafer Messenger assures us that data security will not be a problem for its users.

Wafer Messenger is an application that allows users to combine 6 types of media content, including audio and video, to send a single creative message.
Stan Debruyn, Press and Media Coordinator at Wafer, explains the app clearly. “Wafer Messenger is one of the fastest growing messaging apps with over 600k downloads in just 6 months,” he said. “We are based in Luxembourg with offices in New Delhi and Washington DC and were selected amongst the most promising startups in the world at last year’s Web Summit in Lisbon. It’s easy to see why. We allow our users to compose the most creative messages and give them the ability to reach all of their contacts for free, through either text or call; even those contacts who are not on Wafer yet.” You can download the Wafer Messenger App in Apple’s AppStore. Send a message to a friend—s/he can respond even without the app!
“Two months ago, we changed our logo from a ‘W’ to a crown; not because we think we are the kings or queens of messaging apps, but because we give absolute power to our users both in terms of creativity and privacy.”
Given the recent breaches in data security, Wafer Messenger has taken good care to assure its users of the startup’s commitment to user privacy. “We live in a world of uncertainty and growing mistrust between people and social media and messaging platforms. This is why we want to remind and assure our current and future users that we have always honoured, and will continue to honour, our promise to protect their privacy,” founder and CEO Simone La Torre says. “Two months ago, we changed our logo from a ‘W’ to a crown; not because we think we are the kings or queens of messaging apps, but because we give absolute power to our users both in terms of creativity and privacy.”
In addition to the company’s initial two pillars, “Endless Creativity” and “Limitless Reach,” Wafer recently added “Absolute Privacy.”
