SumTips: 10 Things to Do on SumRando Messenger When WhatsApp Is Shut Down

Another WhatsApp block for Brazil
This week, Brazil once again blocked WhatsApp in response to the messaging app’s refusal to supply information parent-company Facebook insists it doesn’t have. Within hours, a Supreme Court ruling turned the service back on, leaving many to wonder if this was the shutdown to end all shutdowns—or if there will be more to come.

At times like these, it’s good to remember that SumRando VPN will allow you to access WhatsApp even when it’s blocked and that WhatsApp is not the only messaging service out there. SumRando messenger, available for free for Android 4.1 and higher, utilizes 256-bit AES encryption and requires only a username and password for registration. From there, you can:

1.    Send and receive messages.

2.    Send and receive photos, videos and files.

3.    Use emojis!

4.    Communicate in any of 14 languages: Arabic, Chinese, English, French, German, Hindi, Indonesian, Pashto, Persian, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Taiwanese and Urdu.

5.    Start a group chat.

6.    Choose to link your phone number or email address to your account—or leave it anonymous.

7.    Delete messages at any time from your account.

8.    Delete messages at any time from a friend’s account.

9.    Destroy an entire conversation from your account.

10.  Destroy an entire conversation from a recipient’s account. Just like it never happened ;)

Don’t ever let a government shutdown stop you from continuing your conversations. Surf secure, stay Rando and keep chatting!
