Our Mission

Okitel started as an alternative to SMS. Our product now supports sending and receiving a variety of media: text, photos, videos, documents, and location, as well as voice calls. Some of your most personal moments are shared with Okitel, which is why we built end-to-end encryption into our app. Behind every product decision is our desire to let people communicate anywhere in the world without barriers.

Our Team

Okitel was founded by Alfons Mala who had previously spent 12 years in development. Okitel joined in 2023 but continues to operate as a separate app with a laser focus on building a messaging service that works fast and reliably anywhere in the world.
