Sending a Safe and Secure Instant Message, Six Apps That Can Make Your Instant Messages Disappear

Written by Brandon Schaefer, Founder of eioLIFE

Need to send that important information via instant message, not sure what to do, or how to do it? Several simple apps have popped up that will allow you to encrypt, self-destruct, or set a time limit for viewing. I am not an expert in this area by any means, I am just relaying information to you that I feel may be of value to you someday in the future, I personally resort to different methods of transferring confidential information.

I’ve listed the six, more prevalent, secure instant messaging apps, with a few notes about each one, in bullet points below:

  • Burner – Provides temporary phone numbers
  • TigerText – Take back previously sent messages
  • Facebook Poke – Message expires after a set time
  • SnapChat – Message automatically self-destructs
  • Wickr – Send encrypted messages
  • Burn Note – Send encrypted and self destructing messages

If I missed a secure messaging app that you use, and I am sure I did, please let me know and I will update the article.

Hopefully we can get some good feedback from you in the comment section below, and see which ones actually work best in real-life scenarios. One thing is for sure, with more people using their smartphones for daily internet and information transfer activity, these apps and many new ones will become more popular as time goes on.
