Snapchat was sooooooo 2013, and if you’re looking for the next big thing in disappearing messaging, look no further than the iOS app “Confide.”
The app is a dream come true for anyone who’s ever regretted hitting the “send” button after typing a regrettable text message, as messages will “self-destruct” after a set amount of time.
Being labeled as “Snapchat for professionals,” Confide gives the opportunity to get a message out briefly and then have it never seen again.
This app could have a plethora of uses, but the one that seems most obvious is for those who are trying not to get caught cheating.
Created by former AOL executive Jon Brod and chief executive of Yext Howard Lerman, the New York-based app is looking to be the next big thing in confidential messaging.
Unlike Snapchat, however, this app doesn’t hoard your data, something many users are weary about coming up later in life.
“We don’t have the technology to read your messages,” Mr. Lerman told Businessweek.
“Confide doesn’t store any messages on its servers, it doesn’t have the ability to retrieve them if a company, or the National Security Agency, comes knocking.”
This means that once a message is gone, it’s truly gone, never to be read again.
This is, however, all speculative, as everyone thought Snapchat was secure until a few weeks back.
Sounds a bit like Inspector Gadget’s messages, no?
