Privacy-first messenger app, very popular in India

Welcome to hike messenger, a messaging app that puts privacy first. It was designed in India to cater to the needs of the Indian market, but it's accessible from anywhere. Create a personal profile in hike, but only allow it to be seen by people on your list - not your aunts, not the creepster down the street, no one! You can also choose to hide specific chats behind a password to keep out anyone nosy enough to poke around your device when you're not looking.

There are also stickers and emoji galore to personalize your messages. Plus, you can send media and non-media files and documents, including PDF, ZIP, Doc, PPT, and even APK. There's an offline mode that allows you to contact your friends even when they don't have wifi access - hike detects that for you and sends them an SMS instead, at zero cost to you. Any reply they send will be in hike.

hike is really well-designed with a ton of thoughtful, useful features that perfectly fit the needs of Indian users. If you're not located in India, you probably won't find many of your friends on it, though.
