Secure Communication

Tapadito allows you to communicate with others without having to give out your personal phone number.

Realtors, Doctors, Teachers and other professionals who wish to text with a contact.

Many professionals need to communicate with their clients but do not wish to give out their private mobile phone number. For example:

  • Doctors who need to communicate with patients.
  • Realtors who need to communicate with buyers or sellers.
  • Teachers who need to communicate with students or parents.
  • A young person meets someone on the Internet but does not yet wish to give out her number.
