Free RNS alerts via Telegram. If you don't use Telegram yet, you just install the Telegram app or program, connect to the Yoizer bot and with a few simple commands, you can start or stop RNS alerts. No login. No sharing of personal details. Simple!
You can receive free RNS alerts for up to 5 different TIDMs! TIDMs can be found on the website of the London Stock Exchange, in the first column.
For example, the TIDM of Bowleven is BLVN and the TIDM of Chariot Oil is CHAR.
Telegram is more secure than mass market messengers like WhatsApp and Line. Client-server encryption is used in private chats and is based on 256-bit symmetric AES encryption, 2048-bit RSA encryption, and Diffie–Hellman secure key exchange.
If you're not using the Telegram app or program yet, download it from the Telegram website or your app store.

SMS is not free. Both SMS and e-mail need your personal details (phone number, e-mail address) and a website with login/registration and payment functionality. To keep things as cheap, simple and secure as possible, Yoizer uses Telegram. No need for us to store your phone number, e-mail address, payment details, etc. Another advantage over SMS is there's no alert size limit of 160 characters anymore.
(and not WhatsApp, Line or WeChat)? Telegram offers free API access, secure chats and has software available for Linux, macOS, Windows and mobile phones. It even has a web client, so it can be used on anything with a web browser. Other messengers don't offer that (yet?). If you know of a better messenger, let us know.
Please read the Telegram Wiki about Notification Issues.
Right now, we don't. We might try placing (unobtrusive) ads on the website, or try other alternative forms of monetization. Maybe we will offer to lift the 5 TIDM limit, or direct links to the LSE, for a small price in the future. Suggestions (and donations) are welcome!
TIDM stands for Tradable Instrument Display Mnemonic. It is a short (3- or 4-character), unique code used to identify UK-listed shares, previously known as EPIC.
TIDMs can be found on the website of the London Stock Exchange, in the first column. For example, the TIDM of 88 Energy is 88E and the TIDM of Petrofac is PFC.
The Telegram API does not allow more than 30 messages per second. To avoid hitting that limit, we decided to limit the amount of TIDMs per user. If this limit changes, or we can find a way around it, we will review individual requests. For most users, the limit of 5 simultaneous TIDMs seems to be enough.
The current (June 2018) top 5 is as follows: BMN, EQT, SLE, SOU and SXX.
Use IRSH as TIDM.
The old SMS/e-mail alert system was operational until June 1st 2018. Now, you can only receive free RNS alerts by Telegram. You will need to follow the setup instructions above. It is not possible to convert your old alerts.
