Unsend It, LLC

Unsend It™ is an encrypted messaging app allowing users to unsend, edit & self-destruct text messages at ANY time (even after being read/opened by the recipient). What's really cool is that only the sender needs the app.

You can send text messages to ANY of your contacts. If the recipient doesn't have the app, your message will be sent as a SMS text where they can read & reply to your encrypted message. Only users have the power to unsend, edit & self-destruct text messages!

This app is fully-loaded with additional features including customizable photo avatars, screen names that you can change on the fly (so you can control what/how your name appears to any recipient when sending a text), PIN-locking, audio messaging, screenshot detection & more!

*** IMPORTANT SETUP INFORMATION ***

Before sending your first message, change your screen name (in the 'settings' screen of the app) to something recognizable - we recommend your first & last name. You can change your screen name as many times as you want and the effect takes place in real-time! Have fun with it :)

You social? We're social. Follow us on Twitter @_unSend as we strive to prove our reason for existing by retweeting the best/worst autocorrect text nightmares, texting the wrong person (with often times confidential/compromising information), and of course, drunk texts people wish they could 'unsend'. Remember folks, this app could save your job, your relationship, your marriage, and some have even said this app could save your life (see the article about us over at 'Brit + Co' (brit.co)). Quite simply, we're just here to give you complete, end-to-end encrypted control over your messaging.
