Project Description

Survey found that 91% of Americans “agree” or “strongly agree” that people have lost control over how personal information is collected and used by all kinds of entities. As per another survey more than 89% people in Pakistan, 93% people in Bangladesh, 99.5% people in Myanmar, 97.8% people in Ethopia, 95.4% people in Tanzania, 94.8% people in Congo, 85% people in India, 84% people in Indonesia & 62% people in Nigeria have no access to internet. Additionally 60% social media complaints are about harassment of females.

CelebConnect is going to launch social media app TownChat & web platform TownPals with unique features not provided by Facebook or WhatsApp. It will address privacy issues by providing secure sign up & sign in through facial recognition. TownChat will provide augmented connectivity to more than 4 billion people worldwide who are not connected to internet. TownChat is first ever app that will allow off internet messaging.

Through TownChat every user will be assigned unique TownChat ID so that phone numbers of users could be protected from being revealed. For initiating messaging both users will need to follow each other. All users particularly females will have option to keep their accounts private so that no one could search and follow them and they could engage in messaging only with friends and family members. Organizations can create public rooms for customer experience.

TownChat protects the identity and privacy of its users by providing users the option to keep their profile totally private. All private profiles will not appear in any search except search on the basis of TownChat ID. Also on TownChat users can create only 1 profile per user which means no fake accounts will be allowed on TownChat. On TownChat no one else will be able to track private profiles and even for public profiles no one will be able to send message unless the user follows that person back. On TownChat we have used AI and ML based filters that will not allow any toxic comments and pornographic content to be uploaded in any form.

On TownChat Users including Tourists can search other users based on name, city and profession based search. Users can also search for nearby users and can follow them and upon following back they can start conversation with each other. TownChat allows users to send scheduled and off internet messages. Through TownChat users can schedule their messages for any specific date and time without any hassle.

 

 

Our app is Android based and is downloadable from Google Play Store. Additionally those users who do not have access to Internet they can get APK file through Bluetooth or by copying on media card. All signing up users will be asked to take Selfie which will be saved in our database and on local device folder so that Users can sign up even if they are not connected to internet. We will compress all outgoing off internet messages and will get them delivered to recipients through our Out of the Box Technology. Our off internet solution is also capable of processing payments without internet. Politicians and Celebrities will be able to share live updates and to Live Stream.
