If you’re like me, one of your childhood (current?) favorites of pop culture phrases is “This message will self-destruct in 30 seconds.”
Now a new web-based message service puts that spy dream into a reality. Whether you really are spy, have something embarrassing to say, or just have a bit of too-juicy gossip to relate, Privnote has your back, enabling you to send private notes over the Internet.
So, what makes Privnote different from regular emails or instant messages?
- The note can only be read once.
- If someone intercepts the link and sees the note before the intended recipient, that person will know that the note has been eavesdropped.
- You can be notified when your note has been read.
- If you send a note and immediately have sender’s remorse, you can click the link yourself which will destroy the note and prevent the receiver from reading it.
Simply go to Privnote’s site, type in your secret message, and you’ll receive a link to send to your co-conspirator. Once it’s read, it’s gone!
