No signal or mobile data needed. It’s the “INTERNET OF US” (TM)
Fire Chat works even without an Internet connection or cellular phone coverage. Use it anywhere: planes, public transportation, cruise ships, campuses, and crowded events. All you need is a few people around you using Fire Chat.
Bluetooth and WiFi need to be “on” to send and receive messages when not connected to a network (yes please turn WiFi on, even if you don’t have access to the Internet). And if you are connected to a cellular network or WiFi access point, then Fire Chat will work too.
You will be automatically connected directly with one another, creating your own network for public and private communications. The more people use it, the bigger and faster your network becomes.
And when you do have access to a reliable Internet connection or cellular network, Fire Chat helps you reach people worldwide and build your audience faster than on any social network, for free.
Leaders, artists, communities and organizations (news, cultural, humanitarian, sports…) love how quickly Fire Chat scales. Fire Chat helps them communicate instantly with large groups of people to achieve their goals.

How does this work ?
Fire Chat creates a mesh network using Bluetooth and peer-to-peer WiFi. Fire Chat transmits messages and pictures offline between devices that are located within 200 feet of one another.
Thanks to FireChat’s innovative multi-hop and store-and-forward capabilities, Fire Chat users form a network that increases in size with the number of devices. It allows messages to hop from one device to the next in order to reach the recipient(s). This is why the more people use Fire Chat, the better and the larger the network becomes (unlike with cellular networks).
On the mesh network, messages are transmitted seamlessly from one device to the next in order to reach the recipient(s). When an Internet connection or cellular network is available, Fire Chat uses them to reach remote recipients.
Public messages are visible by anyone. Private messages are encrypted and can only be seen and read by the sender and the recipient.
Instantly send messages and photos to anyone around you
Send private messages that only you and the recipient can read thanks to end-to-end encryption
Instantly create live chatrooms for discussions on any topic with a few people or as many as tens of thousands of simultaneous users
Type a hashtag in any message to automatically create a new chatroom
View the most popular messages in the public conversations
Public chatrooms and private messages work both offline and online
Works even without any Internet connection, mobile phone coverage , or data plan
Devices connect directly with one another within 200 feet of their location
Multihop and store-and-forward technology create larger networks when several people use Fire Chat
Fire Chat has been featured by CNN, the BBC, the Wall Street Journal, the New York Times, USA Today, Time, and many more around the world.
Fire Chat is often used at live events – such as the visit of Pope Francis in the Philippines in January 2015 – and large festivals including SXSW where it received an Innovation Award in March 2015.
FireChat user reviews :
Pls increase your near by strenght 30ft to 20km so we can talk with our area peoples, this will be a great feature. Thanks
It’s a good idea for an app but it doesn’t work without an Internet connection like it says. I would like to see an option where you can block people since there are many people who use offensive language and talk nonsense. Would like the option to also include a profile photo as well.
‘FireChat’ Technology is very interesting (Not yet checked without any networks), but need some features like, 1) Private Message 2) Chat Room with Permissions. 3) Invite to Chat 4) Block a Person etc. In everybody tab people using very abusive language. If the above features available then rating will be 5 stars, without hesitation.
