As we’ve seen from Snapchat, there’s a pretty huge market out there for self-destructing photo sharing over social networks these days. With how quickly information gets through these days and how fast pictures meant for close friends or relatives become a joke on the internet, one really can use something that puts restrictions on the information that they are sending out. Not only that, but information also gets regularly stolen by identity thieves as well which jeopardizes the identity holder.
People these days are a bit doltish with the information they send out which leaves them susceptible to identity theft. However, your identity isn’t the only thing at stake here. Think about all the pictures you have uploaded on the internet on Facebook, Twitter etc. Now think about what your future bosses or colleagues would think if they saw some, ahem, ‘pictures’ of you. It could just put you at risk of having a lower employment percentage.
Luckily for us, a Snapchat like application has recently been launched on the Apple App Store and the great thing about it is that it is free! The name of the App is Secret.li.
Essentially the application works like any other Facebook picture uploader but before you upload your pictures you will be able to select a finite time limit, after which your uploaded pictures will self-destruct without leaving any trace of metadata.
However, like Snapchat, Secret.li also has its draw backs. No matter what time limit you set on the picture, it is going to be up on the web for some time during which the receiver can save it or take a screen shot of it rendering you vulnerable again. However, given that you are sending the pictures to people whom you know and trust then this app is the answer you’ve been searching for.
We hope Secret.li helps you out in being more control of what you send out, enjoy!
