APP OF THE MONTH
SAFESWISS COST: FREE OS: IOS, ANDROID
SafeSwiss is a free private messaging app similar to WhatsApp and Viber and, like its competitors, it allows for encrypted voice calls and text chat as well as offering a group text chat feature.
One of its biggest selling features, though, is that its latest update makes sending an attachment to the wrong person a thing of the past.
“The new feature does away with the embarrassment and business risks associated with accidentally sending an attachment or file to the wrong person, implemented in a super-secure mobile messaging environment,” says SafeSwiss. Push-to-delete allows you to delete messages, files, photos and videos you’ve accidentally sent on your device, the recipient’s device, or both.
SafeSwiss lets you sign up without a phone number or email for additional privacy. You can also set a self-destruction timer that wipes the message on both devices after the specified time.
