SIMSme becomes ginlo

After the acquisition of the SIMSme app in March 2019 (learn more here in German), the SIMSme brand is now transferred to the ginlo brand family. During the last few months, we’ve been working with full force to combine expertise and technologies to provide you with a strong product made in Germany, as an alternative to US-based services. Everything SIMSme users need to know

Why the name ginlo?
Information security always comes along with encryption technologies. In cryptography, scrambling of characters in a text is known as transposition ("anagram"). ginlo thus becomes ... drum roll ... login. Since with ginlo, you log in securely, and yet you will find yourself in the world of private data and communication. Without losing control over your data. Always protected against unauthorized access. Pure privacy.

Protect your data.
We’re here to help you.

In the age of digital interconnectivity, data has become a new currency.
Private users pay with their privacy for the “free” apps of US-based corporations. Companies, on the other hand, are a constant target of cyber attacks and industrial espionage. All this makes it more important than ever to regain control over sensitive personal and business data.

That’s why it is our heartfelt goal to make online privacy and confidentiality come true. We, the founders of GMX, have started up Brabbler AG together with dedicated Internet visionaries and software specialists. With ginlo, we want to provide a real alternative. A secure communication platform at a fair price. For you, for our families and friends, for companies, for everyone.
