A Taste of the Features

Encryption Protocol
First and foremost, all of your conversations are stored in end-to-end encryption. You never have to worry about your data leaking out and no one can see your messages except for you, not even the Pulse SMS Team! With Pulse SMS, you get privacy and peace of mind, right out of the box.

Privacy Protection Proof
In technical terms, we use PBKDF2 to encrypt your password and use it as a key to encrypt messages and conversations.

Technical Encryption Overview

1) When an account is created, we generate two salts. One to use with authentication and one for end-to-end encryption.

2) The one that we use with login is straight-forward and normal. We store a version of your password, hashed against the first salt, and authenticate you against this hash.

3) For the encryption, we hash your password against salt #2 and store it locally on your device (computer/tablet/phone). Having this key is the only way that you can decrypt messages. Since no one else has the password that was hashed against the second salt, no one else will be able to decrypt anything.

We share our privacy protocol publicly so our users have peace of mind knowing their password is never stored anywhere and without that password, there is no way to create the secret key used for encrypting and decrypting the content stored in the backend.

Supported Platforms
Pulse SMS has a web app that you can use. It also has native apps for tablets, MacOS, Windows, Google Chrome, Firefox, Linux, and even Android TV. Check out all of our platforms, along with screenshots, here: https://home.pulsesms.app/overview/

Pulse SMS is the premier web, computer, and private texting application on Android. Everything is instant, setup is a breeze, and it's design is unlike anything you have ever seen.

Been using this for over a year and love it! (Edit 1/6/23) I downgraded my rating. The app works well when it works. I've been stuck in tech support limbo for over a week because I can't login and there is an endless string of emails to tech support which they reply " Your request (XXXX) has been updated. To add additional comments, reply to this email.", but nothing gets resolved. I'm looking at other alternatives now.

The only reason I used this app is because of its ability to schedule messages, but it didn't come without a cost. There were multiple instances over the past couple years, in group texts and in texts with individuals, where it would show that a message went through from my end when it actually didn't. I just switched back to my default messaging app, and right when I did that, everyone got a total of around 100 texts that never went through. I have a Galaxy A52, if that provides some context.

pulse is okay. it's a paid version of qksms or textra, but without any additional features to warrant the subscription fee. pulse gets the job done in that it sends and receives messages, but there's no real development or premium features that i have noticed. if one were to set their dns to block ads system-wide, and then go with a free, reputable messaging app, the experience would be identical.
