Beeper Mini operated by intercepting the iMessage protocol via Apple’s push notification service, tricking Apple’s servers into thinking it was a legitimate Apple device. Apple has raised concerns about this method using “fake credentials,” as it poses significant security and privacy risks for users.

Beeper argues that their approach maintains encryption and privacy without compromising them, as mentioned in their documentation, guaranteeing that only the sender and receiver can access sent message content. However, Apple could not verify this assertion and expressed concerns about potential dangers to users.
