無數據無網絡照用 FireChat新增私訊功能

無數據無網絡照用 FireChat新增私訊功能 | Open Garden Press Coverage | Scoop.it
(am訪問)在本港的佔領運動及台灣太陽花學運中,一度傳出網絡會被截斷,令示威者無法聯繫。在無數據或網絡下,仍可傳送即時訊息的手機應用程式FireChat迅速彈起,唯只能發送群組訊息,發送範圍亦只限於約200呎之內。程式今日起更新,新增單對單發送訊息功能,而且只要城市內,有足夠的用戶已安裝該程式,同時開啟手機藍牙或Wi-Fi,訊息便可於最遲20分鐘內,傳至遠距離的朋友。
記者、攝影:朱樂怡開發商Open Garden的創始人兼總裁Micha
Benoliel解釋,程式原理是透過藍牙或點對點Wi-Fi傳送文字及圖像,故即使手機沒有sim卡、無網絡,只要雙方都開啟藍牙功能,就可收發訊息。但因發送私人訊息的開發技術較複雜,用家以往只能於群組內發聲,加上藍牙的發射距離有限,訊息發送範圍亦只限於30米內。經持續研發後,程式今日起新增私人聊天功能,而即使收件人距離200呎外,訊息亦能不斷跳送至最近、裝有FireChat、並開啟藍牙或Wi-Fi功能的裝置(「郵差」),直至收件人接收訊息「停止」,期間訊息會加密,系統自動認證該裝置為收信人後,才會顯示內容,「中間人不會知道訊息內容,更不會知道自己做了『郵差』」。但他指,一個城市至少要有5%流動人口同時使用程式,訊息才能於最遲20分鐘內抵達市內任何距離的人,故「愈多人使用,網絡才會愈強大,而香港現時已錄50萬人下載,遠超預期。」他又指,因為訊息並非經過任何網絡發送,而是由電話直接發送到另一部電話,相信於內地亦較難受到監控或竊取。Micha續說,程式原為發展中的地區而設計,「在那些地方,智能手機的使用量正上升,但因使用流動數據太貴、或網絡訊號差,而未能使用即時通訊」。對於程式相繼於示威活動中走紅,他直言意外,但仍感慶幸,「可以增加曝光率!」
