Confide Provides Secrecy for Your Messages, Photos, and Documents

ConfideThe web site proudly proclaims, “Communicate digitally with the same level of privacy and security as the spoken word. With encrypted messages that self-destruct, Confide gives you the comfort of knowing that your private messages will now truly stay that way.”

After a message sent with Confide is read once, it disappears forever – no saving, no forwarding, no printing … no nothing. Confide messages are as private as the spoken word. Both the sender and the recipient need to use Confide software, however.

Messages sent to Confide users are end-to-end encrypted. Only the recipient’s device can decrypt and read the message. Have a sensitive term sheet, financial document or PowerPoint you want to share? Give someone a peek, without leaving a copy behind.

Other so-called secure messaging services have been compromised in the past when the recipient takes and saves a screenshot of the received message. Confide doesn’t really stop anyone from making a screenshot but it does immediately send a notice to the sender when a screenshot is made. At least the sender is aware of the breach of confidence immediately and can take prompt corrective action.

Confide will send messages to anyone simply by using their email address or mobile phone number. It will also send messages to an individual or to a group. Confide supports both one-to-one and group messaging.

The Confide software is available for Macintosh, Windows, iPhone, Android and even for Apple Watch.

Confide is available FREE of charge for individuals. A version for corporate users is being developed but is not yet available. The corporate version probably will cost money but pricing gas not yet been announced.
