How to Create Self-Destructing Messages Online

There are times when you want to send confidential messages to your friends or family and want it to disappear after it has been read. If you are concerned about the privacy of the messages you send to your friends, here are some ways that you can create self-destructing messages that will be deleted after read.

Burn Note is a very handy online utility that allows users to create self-destructing messages online and send them to anyone they want. You can even encrypt the notes as well so that only the person who knows the password can read the note. The great thing about this service is that you can even talk to your friends and have a private conversation, which is also deleted right after you read the message.

To get started, just sign up for an account on Burn Note, and you will be redirected to Burn Note dashboard. From there, you can check your old conversations and add contacts to your account so that you don’t have to manually enter them again when you want to send a message to the same person. By managing your conversations, it doesn’t mean that it will contain all the messages; it will just show you the email address or username of the person with whom you had the conversation.

After signing up, all you have to do is write your message and select the recipient to whom you want to send the message. They can either be other Burn Note users or an email address you specified. You can even get the direct link of the note and send it to anyone you want.

NoteDIP is another useful tool that allows users to create and send self-destructing messages online. This service also allows users to encrypt their notes, and you will receive a notification after the note has been read by the recipient.

To get started, just go to the NoteDIP homepage and write the message you want to share. After writing the message, the service will ask you to provide your email address if you want to receive a notification after the message has been read. Also, you can password-protect your notes as well. Click “Next” and it will create a private link which can be shared with the recipient. Unlike Burn Note, NoteDIP doesn’t allow users to send the private link directly to the recipient’s email address.

These are two very useful online tools that allow users to send encrypted messages online that are deleted after they have been read by the recipient. My personal preference is Burn Note, as it allows users to create an account and manage a list of contacts online. However, if you prefer a simpler solution with a clean interface, NoteDIP will probably be more suitable for you.
