Using TigerText, user can set a time limit about the text message to stay after it is read. When the limit exceeded, the message will disappear from the recipient’s phone, the sender’s phone and any servers. After this, you can not forward the message to anywhere, store the message or sold it to a flashy news magazine. The basic level of the software costs $2.50 per month.
It works like this. Suppose, a famous person sends his mistress a message through iPhone using TigerText, the mistress will be prompted to install the app. When she does so, she will be able to read the message, but she can’t keep it. Actually, the message is never sent to her phone. It’s stored at TigerText’s servers.
When the specified time mentioned by the sender crosses, the message doesn’t exist. In fact, there is a “delete on read” button. It means that the message will be deleted after a count of 60. The count starts after the message is opened. There is also “delete history” option for the careful people. It deletes the evidence of any given phone call.
Although, European Union placed a rule in 2006 that all of the service providers need to keep all cell-phone and e-mail data for a particular period of time, but, the founder of the company, Jeffrey Evans thinks that the ruling is wrong and it is an invasion of privacy. He also said that the company is concerned about privacy.
“People text like they talk,” he says. “And some of the things they say, taken out of context, can come back to haunt them.”
