How to text anonymously with the squeakby texting app

beach_photo

In our daily lives, when we meet strangers, it is natural to keep our privacy, at least initially. The internet and the ubiquity of mobile phone texting is a legitimate privacy concern for some people. For others, texting is an opportunity to reach out and socially connect with people. Texting anonymously has its benefits. The squeakby texting app makes it very convenient to protect your cell phone privacy with a temporary number whenever you need it. One is able to text freely and anonymously, and it is just as easy to cancel it when one becomes better acquainted with the other party, and/or decides they can be trusted to do business.

Why text anonymously from my cell phone

Here are some short-term legitimate situations that are suited for the squeakby texting app and anonymity:

Coordinate a food delivery or taxi pickup by texting, or arranging a new service with a contractor or merchant.

Sending an anonymous text message to your boss concerning a sensitive company policy, or personal behavior.

Con artists and scams who use texting to target the elderly.  AARP has a Fraud Watch Network that explains how identity theft works, and it might be worth checking out.

Comparing your college grades with the grades of the other students in your field of study.

Texting directions or instructions from a stranger in an unfamiliar place. Finding a texting companion to walk you safely home.

An alternative is to get permission from a friend to text one time from her mobile phone. Your friend will likely want to know why and what you are going to text. Or you can buy and swap in a prepaid sim card for your mobile phone prior to texting messages.

The squeaby texting app

courtesy: wonderhowto.comThe squeakby texting app serves as a middle-of-the-road solution if you are thinking of protecting your mobile phone privacy. It is one-on-one 2-way texting. When you cancel the service, the temporary number is recycled. There is a mute/block feature, and a no-spam policy. Squeakby can be thought of as equivalent to the old-fashion bulletin boards with written notes posted on them. The app allows you to talk on your mobile phone, and instantly set up arrive times in your google calendar. You see who you are texting to but they see only the anonymous temp number, and not your personal phone number. From its desktop web portal, you can copy-paste and send 1-way anonymous text messages.

In sensitive situations, anonymity helps us be more forthright and blunt without causing undue embarrassment to people. They are decisions we make all the time when we socialize with real people in real situations. It mitigates social risk in this age of the internet. For more involved social situations, such as texting your ex, there are numerous web-based messaging software and mobile apps available. They include titles like WhatsApp, omegle and tinder. Some, like Aim, come with built-in avatars and social profiles. WonderHowTo covers additional ways of texting with privacy. Finally there is group SMS texting where messages are broadcast to a group of personal contacts all at once.

If you have a large mobile workforce that works independently away from your main office, calling them individually is time-consuming. There are mandated protocols and legal compliance to adhere to. Group messaging can automate those routine notifications. It frees up time to deal with the exceptions, such as a missed appointment,  that may require individual handling. It might work better than e-mails for some situations, especially when promptness is important.

We have the means to automate the link between the work performed on the computer and connecting it instantly to the mobile telephones that everybody seems to have nowadays. The approach streamlines some of the routine procedures, increases productivity, and only trigger situations that require urgent attention. Activity logs can be printed for hardcopies.

Whether you love it nor not, what are your experiences with group texting on mobile telephones? Twitter has Direct Messaging, or DM. With it, you can set up group chat with up to 20 twitter users. This is akin to the traditional online chatroom. To the right, you may request notification of new postings, or write any comments below.

Hero Dog Awards™ Campaign 2015

WASHINGTON, Jan. 15, 2015 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — American Humane Association, the country’s first national humane organization, today announced the official start of the 2015 American Humane Association Hero Dog Awards™ campaign, the annual year-long search for America’s bravest heroes on both ends of the leash. Beginning January 15th, dog owners across the country are invited to visit www.herodogawards.org and nominate their four-legged hero in one of eight categories. The top dog in each category will be flown to Los Angeles and celebrated at a red carpet, star-studded awards gala on September 19th, where one heroic hound will be unveiled as American Hero Dog of the year – the most prestigious honor a canine can receive. The fifth annual Hero Dog Awards will air nationwide as a two-hour special on Hallmark Channel this fall.

The eight categories for 2015 are: Therapy Dogs, sponsored by Zoetis (also the official Online sponsor for the competition); Service Dogs, sponsored by Modern Dog magazine; Law Enforcement Dogs; Military Dogs; Arson Dogs; Search and Rescue Dogs; Guide/Hearing Dogs; and Emerging Hero Dogs, a category that pays tribute to ordinary dogs who do extraordinary things. Following the nominations period, which ends on February 25th, 24 semifinalists (the top three in each category) will be chosen in a first round of public voting. The second round, featuring a combination of public and celebrity voting, will narrow the field to the eight category finalists who will then vie for the title of 2015 American Hero Dog.

Over the past four years, millions of Americans have cast votes for nearly a thousand dogs, all seeking the coveted title of American Hero Dog. The program reaches more than 1 billion people each year and draws the support and participation of top celebrity dog lovers from all over the world. Hosts, judges, award presenters, and entertainment acts have included Victoria Stilwell, Betty White, Whoopi Goldberg, Denise Richards, Beth Stern, James Denton, Joey Lawrence, Lisa Vanderpump, Mickey Rooney, Burt Reynolds, Chelsea Handler, Martin Short, Jewel, Wilson Phillips, John Ondrasik, Carson Kressley, Miranda Lambert, Pauley Perrette, Kristen Chenoweth, Naomi Judd, Lou Wegner, Bailee Madison, and many, many more.

Winners in each category will earn money for a designated charity partner and the overall winner’s charity partner will win an additional monetary prize. Each charity partner is dedicated to celebrating the role of working dogs in our lives, and like American Humane Association, celebrates the importance of the human-animal bond.

“The American Humane Association Hero Dog Awards recognize the extraordinary work dogs do for people every single day,” said Dr. Robin Ganzert, American Humane Association’s president and CEO. “Hero dogs do so much to keep millions of Americans safe, happy, and healthy, and it is the least we can do to honor them on one special night every fall.”
