Frequently Asked Questions
How Does Talsam Work?
Talsam uses Bluetooth® technology to connect to your smartphone. Every charm contains a set of six LED lights on its face that delivers a glowing notification when you receive a message sent using the Talsam mobile app.
Talsam charms also contain a motor for delivering vibration alerts, a button for sending SOS alerts and unlocking private messages, and a USB-C® connector for charging the charm.

Secret messages are protected using two-factor authentication. To access a secret message, you need to use an additional method to authenticate your identity, like your password, pressing the button on your charm, your fingerprint, or some other biometric input.
To send a secret message, switch the secrecy toggle to ‘ON’ when sending a message.
