The cry of "Support domestic producers", which was abandoned a few years ago, until today has not lost its relevance. Especially after the economy Ministry proposed to introduce a ban on conducting business correspondence through a foreign messengers. While "taboo" will apply only to officials and military personnel.

According to the Agency, the employees of these structures should be accorded only to Russia's development. The main reason for such a categorical proposal is that foreign mobile applications are vulnerable, as all information sent or received by a user, recorded and stored on the server. This means that if necessary you can listen to, raise the "archives" and to publish the whole correspondence .

In the spring of 2016, a group of young Russian designers presented a new messenger - UAround that unlike their foreign counterparts gives a 100% guarantee of confidentiality. This is possible because all conversations and correspondence users bypassing the server. It is needed only for the connection.

UAround – is a new mobile app for smartphones and tablets running on iOS and Android platforms that allows you to be connected anywhere in the world where there is Internet access. Messenger is so convenient and easy to use, what to understand it could children and older people. It can be used not only to send text messages but also share photos, make calls, create interest groups, conduct business, learn, make friends, and do all this absolutely free.

It provides all – sections "Chats", "Dating", "Who's next", by the way, this feature is kind of a know-how of Russian developers. Its advantage lies in the quick people search on the specified data. You just need to lightly shake the phone to display a list of the 50 users who are closest.

Young programmers of Russia decided not to stop there, and have already begun work on improving the app. In the nearest plans - adding video call, beautiful Emoji, internal teams for companies. They believe that foreign is not always good and our Russian product, in no way inferior to foreign analogues in quality and, most importantly, in matters of security, and in some points even exceed, that in the illustrative example proves the new messenger UAround.

UАround - this is a new app for chatting, Dating and business function calls, encryption, and "around You", which will allow you to choose a user near you.
