Web Messenger project


Project Objective

            In recent times the world has become a global village and instant communication is possible between places that are separated by thousands of kilometres. The advent of the telephone, mobile networks, and satellite networks have bolstered this growth in communication. The internet has quickly become an important tool in communication. Most communication between business entities or individuals is facilitated by the internet. Multiple portals can offer services with features to match every desire.

            This Web Messenger project aims to build a messaging service that can operate over the internet. This system will be able to connect multiple users and enable them to chat and share files over a secured internet connection. The system will consist of a client module and a server module. The server module will handle management of user accounts and facilitate the connection, while the client module will be used by the user.

            The user will be required to enter details about themselves such as their email ID, mobile number, name, etc. They will be able to upload a profile picture and can choose a unique name (Profile Name). Users will be able to connect with other users by either sharing their Profile Name or sharing a QR code that will make it easy to share one’s Profile Name.

            Users will be able to interact one – on – one with other users or they can create common chat forums to talk with more than one user. This system can also be used to share photos, video files, audio files or Office documents.

            The Web Messenger system will also allow users to be contacted via email or mobile. If a user wishes to contact another user via email or mobile (SMS) they can choose the link on the system and system will forward any message via email or SMS without revealing the email ID or mobile number of the recipient user.

Web Messenger Snapshot

Existing System

            The existing Web Messenger system of messengers have limited functionality as they do not offer options to share files nor do they allow email and SMS communication without revealing the email ID or mobile number. Such systems are limited in their scope and generally users use many such systems in tandem.

Proposed System

            The proposed Web Messenger system allows people to share files easily. It protects user details such as email IDs and mobile numbers while allowing communication through these mediums. The only ID needed is a unique name that can be generated by the system and this name can be easily shared using a QR code. This system will appeal to the need for instant communication of the youth and the need for identity protected communication of businesses.

Web Messenger Modules

Server: The server side can be used to create user accounts. It will provide verified user credentials and help generate a unique name (Profile Name) for each user. In the event of a misuse of service terms the server module can be used to deactivate a user account.

Client: The client side can be used by the users. Users can share pictures, video, audio and Office files using this module. They will be able to contact other users either using the messaging interface of this system or through email and SMS. The system will mask the email IDs and mobile number of all users.
