About this app

The Bridgefy App lets you send offline messages to friends and family within 330 ft (100 m) when you don't have access to Internet, by simply turning on your Bluetooth antenna. Bridgefy is ideal for traveling, natural disasters, rural communities, music festivals, sports stadiums, and much more.

Use the Broadcast tab of the app so you can chat with other Bridgefy users within your Bluetooth's antenna range during tough times in which Internet connectivity is complicated. All messages sent through the Bridgefy messaging app mesh networks are encrypted. Please keep in mind Broadcast messages can be seen by anybody nearby.

How to start using Bridgefy:

1.- Turn on Bluetooth

2.- Open Bridgefy, making sure you have an Internet connection (only needed the very first time you open it). Give the app location permissions (to use the Bridgefy technology via Bluetooth).

3.- Go to the Broadcast tab

4.- Start sharing messages with people that are within 330 ft. (100 mts) from you

Please refer to the FAQ tab for instructions on how to start a private chat!

You don't need to add contacts to Bridgefy. The app automatically detects other Bridgefy users around you and lets you chat using the Broadcast section.

Doesnt Work Reliably...Sadly. I was excited about this app because firechat doesnt work reliably either. I was happy to see that they got rid of the requirement to verify. But I cant get it to work reliably with two phones (both LG G6) with airplane mode on, no wifi and bluetooth and location on. And i found that it never worked reliably but i thought i was making progress when i figured out that you need to close and reopen the app once all the necessary settings were on (BT & Location). :(

If you try starting it when the internet is off, it takes 1 minute to load. Then it crashes as soon as you try to send a message. If the "internet-free" messaging app requires a constant internet connection, then it's useless.

Hi there! We're working on some bugs that we hope to have resolved with the next update. We hope you'll come back and give us another try, and we're sorry for the inconvenience!

Completely non-functional app. I installed it on two of my phones and they couldn't find each other even sitting right next to each other. I tried to send a message on the public chat and it just crashed the app. The same happened on both phones which are on different versions of android so I'm pretty sure it's not just a fluke - the app is just totally broken.
