Laughable. Allowing text to “burn” after say 7 minutes for both user and receiver devices when FEDZILLA could capture the message in real-time in addition to knowing everything else about you...including your life history and whereabouts is...laughable.

Just an opinion, but I suspect the Nameless Sameless Aimless will figure out a way to break it in a week, maybe two.
Does this mean the perv teacher can now send “compromising” pictures of him/her-self to students and they go away after seven minutes?
That is creepy, but I do find the whole double standard about electronic vs “old school” communication fascinating. We can say anything in a hallway or typed up and then delete it, but if it’s eMail, the government REQUIRES a company to save it. That is so orwellian as to destroy all of my faith in the current system.
Maybe that is why I am such a doom and gloomer. I WANT it to crash. Hmmm. I’ll have to think about that.
Any encrypted coms between conservative individuals or organizations is going to draw plenty of fed attention. If they can’t decipher the messages they’ll try another angle of snooping. Or come up with a warrant based on the testimony of a “confidential informant” to raid locations and grab the computers.
Only two schemes have ever truly unnerved the NSA.
One was an encryption scheme that was able to seamlessly and invisibly encrypt data into routine high volume business email traffic. Say one ordinary message out of ten million such messages sent internationally would read like a normal, boring document, but had data woven into its text.
An ordinary piece of hay in a haystack.
The other scheme was an “assassination pool”, in which anonymous individuals would be issued a password, then would place bets on when, say, a political leader would die. And the guess closest to the actual time would win the pool, less a service charge.
Typical users would place improbable bets solely to increase the pool for a hated politician. Then a potential assassin would place his bet near the time when he planned to kill the politician. All bets are of the same size, and when they were made kept a secret.
The guy who invented this latter idea was eventually arrested on unrelated charges and given the maximum possible sentence for them.
Should help the bad guys too, I imagine.
Nonsense. Any data that is sent via proxy to another device is subject to capture and subsequent decoding.
