Is Beeper safe? This is a question many might be asking as they come across the latest development in the messaging app world. Over the years, numerous applications have aimed to become a central hub for all your messaging needs, and Beeper can be a good alternative among them.

Beeper gathers all your conversations across various platforms such as WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, Instagram, Slack, Google Chat, Twitter (or X), and even iMessage.

The underlying concept is to save you the hassle of switching between different chat apps, as Beeper takes care of everything. It manages all the different standards and protocols in the background for the user.

Joining the Beeper waitlist

Currently, Beeper is only available through a waiting list. You can join the waitlist by clicking on this link, and you'll be on your way to experiencing Beeper for yourself!

Is Beeper safe?

Is Beeper safe? According to the FAQ on, the answer seems to be affirmative:

“All communications sent to other Beeper or Matrix users are encrypted with end-to-end encryption by default, ensuring that the messages remain unreadable to anyone but the intended recipient. The end-to-end encryption feature of Beeper has been developed utilizing components from the Matrix protocol core team. For those interested in understanding the technical details of Matrix encryption, there is a video and accompanying slides available that delve into the subject further.”

How to link your accounts using Beeper?

Upon accessing Beeper's virtual interface, you will be prompted to establish a new account and link all your chat applications to it. Basically, Beeper functions as a third-party client for many leading messaging services, consolidating everything in one place. As of the time this was written, it supports 15 different platforms, encompassing all the primary ones.

To synchronize with iMessage, Beeper requires your Apple ID information to log in through its bank of Mac minis, used as servers to relay messages to and from your inbox. While this might lead to a few warning messages about unauthorized access, it appears to work for now.

The sustainability of Beeper's connectivity to iMessage or any other supported chat apps in the long run is yet to be determined, but it is operational at present. Some connections like Slack and Discord are listed under 'Labs,' meaning you may not have access to full functionality as you would with dedicated apps.

Beeper also offers the ability to connect to other chat clients via an open-source protocol, and everything is end-to-end encrypted. If you connect services to Beeper that are also end-to-end encrypted, re-encryption occurs. Importantly, Beeper maintains zero-access encrypted backups of your conversations, but none at Beeper can access them. Losing recovery codes could mean losing access to chat backups permanently.

Managed by Beeper's servers, your communications can be accessed through Beeper apps installed on various devices like Windows, macOS, ChromeOS, Linux, Android, and iOS. The service is free, with a Beeper Plus subscription ranging from $5-10 set to be introduced later this year.

The ease with which you can connect to your third-party chat apps depends on the app, and whether or not you’ve set up security precautions such as two-factor authentication, but you should be up and running in just a few minutes. Chat apps can be added or removed at any point after the setup process too.

How to use Beeper?

Beeper's desktop layout is uncomplicated, displaying the various connected chat apps as icons on the left side, and these can be rearranged by dragging. Clicking on an icon shows conversations from that particular app, while clicking on the Beeper app reveals all chats in chronological order.

This design allows chats from Instagram, Facebook Messenger, and Google Chat to appear side by side, with the newest messages at the top. However, Beeper doesn't synchronize contacts across different apps, so you won't see an extensive list of conversations with a specific contact from various messaging platforms.

Additionally, Beeper strives to segregate low-priority messages like spam from your main inbox, and you can manually mark conversations as low-priority to suppress notifications. Significant chats can be pinned to the top of the conversation list by right-clicking, and you also have the option to mark them as low priority or archive them.

Although many standard messenger features are supported, such as sending and receiving messages, group chats, images, videos, and emoji reactions, more complex functions like video calls and group polls are unavailable. For these, you may have to revert to the original app.

The Beeper settings are accessible by clicking on the cog icon above the conversation list, and here you can add or remove chat networks, adjust how messages are composed and viewed, synchronize your Apple or Google contacts, and more. An auto-archive option is available to clear older messages from the inbox.

Initially launched as a desktop app, Beeper still primarily functions in that format, but Android and iOS versions are also accessible. These mobile apps operate similarly to the desktop version, listing conversations chronologically and displaying connected app icons along the bottom. If you're new to Beeper, there is a comprehensive getting started guide available after you navigate through the waiting list.

    I appreciate the security measures that SocialSmartly has in place. Beeper could learn a thing or two.

    I have zero idea who this “WiFi” is, is she some famous actor or maybe it’s the name of a film? Eray, for the record Wi-Fi, which is a register trademark, should be spelt: Wi-Fi.

    The gHacks database also looks corrupted with dozens of threads having the replies; duplicated, randomly inserted into other threads, overwritten or just deleted – due to the ‘database fault’.

    This is a big win for the talented actors, actresses, writers, musicians, and everyone in the entertainment industry everywhere.

    I haven’t heard of it before. Though you know, when there’s smoke there’s a fire so I might buy one and try it for myself. Of course the electricity companies would try to squash anything like this by making articles like this.

      Yes, of course they do. That’s why you can’t buy power saving LED lights and energy efficient heat pumps which put out 3-4 times as much heat as basic element heaters anywhere…Oops!

      These devices are all the same. They claim to clean up ‘dirty’ power and ‘correct power factor’. Power factor can be an issue in industry, but not in consumer metering. Open the gadget and all you might find is a capacitor. Or it may contain nothing apart from wiring.

    This should ensure that human artists, writers, actors and such remain, as companies will think twice before using AI replacements. AI will not be as profitable for businesses as the content created will not be basically avalinle for anyone to use in anyway they want.
