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). Furthermore, your contacts are protected, no synchronization of your address book and details of private data (data minimization) are needed. Hoccer is made in Germany and subject to the high standards of German Data Protection laws.
