PHOX protects private mobile numbers when texting

PHOX Private Texting Service

PHOX is ideal anytime a person does not want to share their private mobile number for texting.

Ivy Corp (http://www.ivycorp.net) today announced PHOX, a mobile texting service that protects an individual’s private number, providing an easy, safe and secure way to connect and stay private.

PHOX is ideal anytime a person does not want to share their private mobile number for texting, such as:
●    Online dating
●    Car service reservations
●    Online forms
●    Online classified purchases or sales, and
●    Retail discount clubs

PHOX keeps a user’s mobile number protected by hiding it behind a public PHOX number that routes text messages to the customer’s personal, private cell number. With PHOX, customers seamlessly send and receive texts as usual from their cell phone without compromising their privacy or having to install an application that may retrieve or sell data accessed from their mobile phone. Once the PHOX user feels comfortable sharing their private number, they can easily do so at any time.

“Our core expertise in secure and efficient multi-channel mobile messaging was instrumental in developing PHOX,” said Ivy Corp President and CEO Tomas Isaksson. “We believe PHOX and the technology behind PHOX will disrupt how both individuals and ultimately businesses use mobile technology to connect, protect and simplify communication.”

No Application Required = No “Data Slurping”
In today’s world, security and privacy are very important. Because PHOX is a service and not an application, there is no ‘data slurping’ of contact lists or other private information stored on users’ cell phones.    

Isaksson noted that mobile phone applications have the ability to access personal information from users’ cell phones often without the user having a clear understanding of what information is being accessed or if it is being passed on to other parties. As a service, PHOX provides a secure alternative, giving users peace of mind that their privacy and personal information are protected.

How It Works
●    Get a PHOX number - Sign up at http://www.getPHOX.com by entering your mobile number. PHOX will text your cell phone a PIN to confirm and create your PHOX number.
●    Receive a text - Simply give your PHOX number to any new contacts. When they text you, you will receive it on your phone just like a regular text message. When you see PHOX at the beginning of the message, you will know it was sent to your PHOX number. Your replies will be delivered from your PHOX number and appear like any other text to the recipient.
●    Send a text - To send a text to a new contact, get a Go-Between number from PHOX.
