As we celebrated women’s day, did you also feel the presence of that familiar elephant in the room? Amidst the din of celebration and wishes, there was that noise in the corner of our minds that went- equality, equality, equality. The further we go in our fight for equality, the more it widens our eyes to the fact that we do not have a ground under our feet to leap and strike. From fighting to survive as an infant, to fighting to claim a position in the boardroom, women often do all of this feeling unsafe- like they’re always being…
Over the last last 12 months, we keenly observed how people expect a secondary number to work. A user desires privacy and protection from spam callers and SMSes, while not giving up the benefits of giving a mobile number to a business or app.
One such feature that ensures this happens and one that we are super-kicked about, is the Trusted Service feature. So, how does it work?

How many times have we thought?
HOW did that person or business get my mobile number?
We’re in this mess because our good, old telephone number works on the premise of “Intrude now and ask for forgiveness later” If a…
During our launch on 25th May, we published an article that gave the back-story of Doosra, a secondary mobile number service to give at places you’re worried might spam you later or circulate your number for others to spam.
We spent over 2 years refining and perfecting this product and released it with 5 core features:
In this article, we elaborate on one of them: Trusted Contacts
Doosra’s call filter automatically blocks all calls and shows them in the call log. However, if you add a certain caller…
As a serial entrepreneur I have pursued projects that have given me a deep sense of personal and professional satisfaction. In my decade long entrepreneurial journey, there was one factor that really underpinned these pursuits and that was my quest for respecting consumer privacy.
With Zippr, we were able to give personalized and smart addresses to consumers. The advantage was that a Zippr address masks their real address from inquisitive intruders and unwanted strangers.
