Squalk
MOST ASKED.
: DOES SQUALK SHARE MY DATA WITH OTHERS?
We don’t store or share anyone’s data. Why? We never have any of it to share.

All we need is your number, an image if you want one so others know it’s you when you call or message them, and a buddy name for Chat. Again, any name or word you want. Nothing else. No email, no name or anything else.

Even your Top-Up payment details are never seen by us, so we don’t ever hold any of your bank details. They are your details after all. All correspondence will be to your Chat on Squalk. Support and Statements. Never by email. Your email address is yours, not ours to share.

Your data. Your security. It matters. Another absolute Squalk fact.
