This SMS will self-destruct in 40 seconds
This tape will self-destruct in five seconds? became a household phrase in the 60s and 70s thanks to the creators of Mission Impossible, and now 30 years later the ability to send your own self destruct messages has become a reality thanks to a new innovation ? called StealthText launched by Staellium UK Ltd.
Whether you?re a celebrity who?s up to no good or a business executive dealing in sensitive information, the last thing you want is for urgent text messages you?ve sent to fall into the wrong hands. StealthText allows you to send a text message safely in the knowledge that it will delete itself from the recipient?s mobile phone as soon as the person has read it ? ultimately, allowing the sender control of their own information.
Until now, mobile phone users have had to rely on recipients to delete sensitive text messages on their behalf; although a number of high profile cases (Rebecca Loos), have shown that this cannot always be relied on.
However, by simple keying in a code, StealthText users can rest assured that the message goes up in smoke, just like the famous tapes scenes in the Mission Impossible series
