Always wake up in the morning with regret after drunkenly texting your ex the night before? This could be the news you’ve been waiting for.
We’ve all been there – whether it’s drunkenly texting your ex at 3am telling them how much you miss them or – perhaps worse still – accidentally messaging a parent instead of a partner.
You’ll have a few moments of bliss before you realise what you’ve done.
Then you see it – they’ve read your message and NOT replied. Whether it’s a ‘read’ timestamp on iMessage or those dreaded blue ticks on WhatsApp, they’ll send your heart sinking.
But what if there’s a way to ensure the recipient DOESN’T read the message? If you could come to your senses and delete it before they’re even aware you’ve given them a second thought?
Step in, Protect Your Privates , a new app which offers the security settings we’ve all been waiting for.
If you’ve sent a message you deeply regret, simply tap the ‘recall’ button and it becomes a thing of the past. Simple.
It even erases it from the server, so it’s like it never existed at all.
And if you’re worried about that person you’re seeing screenshotting a deeply personal message you’ve sent (so they can ask their mates how to reply, obviously) then worry no more.
The free app also has a built-in function that prevents people from taking screengrabs. So you can rest assured any private photos won’t make it any further.
Protect Your Privates is currently available to download on iOS, with plans to extend to Windows and Android phones too.
