A lot of things have changed since in the last few decades where app (smartphone application) industry is one of them. From email to instant messaging have played an important role to bring people under an umbrella of communication. That’s pretty impressive forwarding in communication nowadays.

From 1996, starting from ICQ to now there are lot of messaging services have already been launched and now at 2015 there is lot of trends in messaging has arrived which totally concentrates on mobile applications.

So instant messaging has named as messaging apps, which is a common phenomenon to everyone now. Since after the people have been worried that their conversations being tracked, privacy issuesgoes a big concern to the users. But after Edward Snowden’s stories it is clear to everyone that online messages are not safe anymore. So thus under growing messaging apps there is another keyword has become an important issue which is “secret chat”.

A secret chat is a one-to-one chat, which is encrypted when delivered to the end users, and chats/messages are being vanished after seen to the receiver end during the customized time setup from the sender’s end.

After setting the timer the sending messages will automatically disappears from the mobile devices.
