“Staellium UK said its StealthText service will allow business executives dealing with sensitive information to send texts that will delete themselves from the recipient’s mobile phone soon after the person has read them.
Once a message has been sent, the recipient receives a text notification showing the sender’s name and providing a link to the message.
Once opened, the message will disappear after about 40 seconds. Staellium said it has had interest from financial services companies, celebrity agents and the U.K.’s Ministry of Defense. ”
