Threema being a paid app is a feature, not a bug. As they say, there’s no such thing as a free lunch, and in contrast to paying with user data, paying with money is transparent and doesn’t sacrifice privacy.
While paying with money is good, paying with cash is even better. Despite the general trend of abandoning cash in favor of electronic payment methods, Threema’s Android app can now be purchased with paper money. It has always been possible to pay Threema for Android in privacy-friendly fashion using Bitcoin, but cash payments now allow for complete buyer anonymity without cryptocurrency.
How It Works
- In the Threema Shop, you select “Pay anonymously with cash,” order the desired amount of licenses, and receive both an order number and a “license URL.”
- You send us the due amount in cash and indicate your order number.
- After receipt of the payment, we activate your licenses, which you can then obtain via the license URL.
