Social Media Updates That Self-Destruct After They Are Posted
Safer places to share messages and media are growing in popularity and two new apps are moving into this space.
After privacy concerns, secure social media channels are growing in popularity as “safer” places to share messages, photos, and videos. Two new apps are moving into this space, promising to meet demand with greater supply.
Wickr is a new encrypted messaging app that destroys the information after it has been sent. It meets NSA top-secret compliance standards and enables users to to send self-destructing messages for free to others anywhere in the world while leaving no trace.
Users can send and receive text, photos, videos, voice and pdfs that are secure, private and anonymous. The sender decides who sees what, where and for how long. Military-grade encryption is used, no personal info is collected from users, and a Secure File Shredder forensically erases unwanted files deleted from their device.
