‘Confide’ App Lets You Send Messages That Self-Distruct

 |  |  |

Need to tell someone something but can’t risk having the message saved or shown to anyone else? Then send it using Confide. It’s the latest in a string of apps that makes privacy and confidentiality its priority.


Confide lets users send encrypted messages that self-destruct after they’re read. It even has a swipe-to-read function that effectively prevents screenshots (which was an area that Snapchat had a lot of trouble with) and sends a notification to the sender once their message has been read. You can alert users that they have private messages waiting via email or SMS – though they’ll need to download the app to read them, of course.

You can download Confide for free from iTunes. The company has future plans for an Android version as well.
