PowerInbox today released their free SecretInk application for sending secure, time-sentitive emails and SMS. The New York-based company recognized the high demand surrounding email privacy controls for consumer-level messaging in the wake of all the NSA revelations.
The multi-channel web platform sends encrypted, private text and email messages inside and outside of social networks like Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter. Sharing your passwords and account information is no longer a privacy concern because the messages self-destruct after being read.
“SecretInk is another example of the future of email enabled by the PowerInbox platform,” says Jeff Kupietzky, CEO of PowerInbox. “Initial testing of SecretInk indicates users love the free, easy and secure way to communicate.”
When you receive an email or SMS, you will notice a countdown timer slowly working its way to zero after you open it. When it hits the end, fully animated explosions are played, reminiscent of Inspector Gadget, before deleting the message data from the servers forever.
Some of the industry’s top designers and developers behind powerhouse apps like TweetDeck and Last.fm were pulled in to collaborate on SecretInk’s interface. Together, PowerInbox was able to successfully partner industrial-grade security technology with a consumer-focused user experience.
PowerInbox believes everyone should be able to send legitimately private messages to their friends, family, and co-workers. By combining the privacy and security of offline communications with the speed of online technologies, users can rest easy knowing their digital life will not fall into the wrong hands.
