Blink Launches Anonymous Messaging App for Android Phones
Published on: 18th Feb 2014
The anonymous messaging app for Apple phones Blink has expanded to the Android OS with its latest update.
The app is supposed to make sharing of short-lived messages possibly by enabling the message to be automatically erased from the recipient device -- which also has to use the Blink app.
Unlike some of the other temporary message app services, Blink goes one stage further by allowing users to sign up for the service without revealing their real names.
The company claims around 100,000 users, concentrated in the USA and Saudi Arabia.
There is however nothing stopping a message recipient using another app to take a screenshot of a message and keeping a copy for however long they like.
