About BBM for PC
Blackberry Messenger or BBM (as commonly known) is among the early popular free messaging app which used to come with only Blackberry smartphones. It is developed and managed by Blackberry Inc.

Now what makes BBM for PC so special?
Mostly all leading messengers like Whatsapp, Wechat etc use either your phone number or your name to connect to your friends. That means anyone knowing your name or having your phone number can message you even if you don’t want to interact with them. To avoid this, comes BBM which uses a special BBM pin to connect with your friends. This feature helps to maintain security as well as privacy as only those with whom you share your BBM pin can message you. Even to view any one’s profile on BBM you need to have their BBM pin which makes it ultra-secure, especially for girls who are always concerned of their profile picture going in wrong hands.
