Bridgefy keeps people connected by making mobile apps work without Internet, in an accessible, easy-to-use, and affordable way.
According to the UN, Internet Access is now a Human Right and even though there are 5 billion users using a mobile phone, 1 Billion does not have access to the internet or lacks a data plan. Bridgefy is solving this by building a global offline communications platform that makes possible mobile apps to work without internet. With a tech for good solution they are working to keep the world connected when the Internet is not available. This app is providing communities in disaster, refugee, war, and poverty situations with an accessible, affordable, and reliable means of communicating via smart devices, by filling the gap when companies and government fails.
