What is it about?

Confide offers off-the-record and “self-destructing” communication with text messages instead of images (as with Snapchat). Once messages in the app are read, they disappear for good. What’s more, it effectively deters users from taking screenshots of messages by concealing words until they are swiped and making each word disappear after it’s passed over.

Why we love it

The best feature of Confide is the ability of the app to prevent screenshots from your device. Self-destructing messages are also nice, allowing you to be sure that secret message won't be around forever. Confide takes privacy to the next level, allowing you the ultimate in secure messaging.

Get Confide and retake control of your digital conversations.


ScreenShield is a new technology that is only supported when the message recipient is using a recent version of Confide. But don’t worry, older versions of Confide are still screenshot-protected by our reading experience.


Confide for iMessage allows you to send and receive Confide messages entirely within iMessage. It’s completely frictionless – there’s no need to create an account. Due to technical limitations of iMessage, Confide for iMessage does not offer the same level of screenshot protection as the main version of Confide.
