Hoccer – the secure Messenger


Hoccer is a communication service that focuses on the protection of your privacy. It transmits messages and attachments with a maximum level of security (end-to-end transport & encryption). Our app is available to all Android users as a free download and allows transfer of attachments of any size.


Hoccer is a secure alternative to traditional text messaging services, which use your 3G or Wifi. Send messages, photos, videos, contacts, locations, and much more free and, most notably, safe.


For registration, Hoccer requires no sensitive or private information such as phone number or email address. Your identity remains invariably anonymous, because for Hoccer, any user is just a randomly generated number (Client ID).

Hoccer is made in Germany and subject to the high standards of German Data Protection laws.

User reviews of Hoccer – the secure Messenger
Please support App2Sd as announced for Android 2.2! Thanks!

Brilliant Idea, nicely worked out! If only more people in my surrounding had this app, I could throw more pictures around :)

This is pretty neat. Allows you to 'toss' (or 'slide') data between devices. In my testing it's not flawless, but it works. Sliding mechanism definitely works, tossing I am not sure if we even got it to work, but it works. Over wifi I bet you could transfer pretty large files just fine.

Suggestion If what is stated coreect, it's brillinat. That is, AES 256 bits content encryption via a customised (say 4096bits) RSA transport and it's end-to-end based, that's exactly what we need. Users can add an extra vpn tunelling to add more security. However, how could we know that what was stated by the creator is true? Also, don't you think that a log in screen with a pin or password is essential? The abscence of log out feature drops the rating badly. I'd suggest adding a self-destruction of messages feature.

Wow.... Drastic switch in direction of usability but man do I like it. Plus the UI is beautiful. I'm not a fan of material design but this utilizes it well.
