  • Lawyers and IT Admins will love it Sep 27, 2019

    By DarkheartLives
    Oftentimes I need to give quick confidential advice to a client, but am wary of them inadvertently sharing it in a manner that will void the attorney/client privilege that could allow an opposing party to use it against them like a confession (the 'worst case scenario' advice lawyers are always giving). This is the only app I've found that I trust to deliver a written message that should otherwise only be given verbally. I'm not a criminal lawyer so no assertions on how it would fare against determined law enforcement, but for civil law work I think it's the only app you should ever use for sensitive communications. In 10 years it will be considered malpractice to send messages any other way. Don't miss the boat, it makes you look good - ahead of the pack plus it could save the case or the deal from the client who loses their phone weekly. Please note that if you want to recall a message you sent or read an old one, basically anything beyond the most basic functionality, it will cost you $5. I don't know if that's per feature or what, just be advised that mistakes might be fixable --- for a price. The developer's sales technique is bit annoying, but I don't feel I was bait and switched like most other apps that do this, and these guys have to make money somehow so no insult intended.

    Now, it is solid. It truly is. Yet, say someone’s screen was mirrored. If the loser who has nothing better to do than look at my or your screen all day then they can see as you swipe down and read your “confidential” message. Your software should be able to realize which screen is the OG and which is the wanna be wangster. The wangster should receive a message telling them that they are scum or something along those lines. While the OG gets what is intended for them only. Make it so, please. Thank you.

  • Unparalleled Confidentiality Mar 29, 2019

    By DiegoStillLives
    Other apps have end-to-end encryption, but that defeats the purpose if the person saves the messages you all have or screenshots them. This app blocks the screenshot AND notifies the other person. And then on top of that you can only read one line at a time and then it has to erase before you can reply or if you even leave the screen.

    Not as great as I thought! I will receive a notification that I have a message. I'll go to check it sometimes I don't even see a message anywhere. and if a friend writes me three or four times back to back I go to check it and I can only read one message... Waste of money

    Beware if you think you’re downloading a free app. The $59 subscription will be billed to your account days later and Apple will be unable to issue a refund since Confide abides by Apples policies. You can avoid being charged if you cancel the auto renewal in your Apple ID subscriptions tab: settings, Apple ID, subscription, Confide. Unlike most subscriptions that tend to offer a prorated refund, Confide, by default, locks you into a year of service. I emailed Confides customer service and was told that Apple handles all refunds. I was hoping to love this app but it’s difficult to convince other recipients to pay to receive messages, especially when they’re at risk of unintentionally signing up for a $59 service that they thought would be free, or at worst, be billed $4 for a month of service. $59 billing surprises can’t be a smart business model.

    What a joke... So, to send someone an anonymous message, first you have to send them an invite to join... I believe that's the exact opposite of anonymous 🙄
  • Good idea but faulty if used within the iMessage app Nov 30, 2020

    By xoxoang
    The reason I am rating this 1 star is because I tested it out within the iMessage app and it doesn’t prevent screen shots for texts or pictures. Within the Confide app itself, it works the way it’s supposed to, but the other person would need to have the app downloaded as well and not everyone is going to do so. So if I want to send a confidential message to someone who doesn’t have this app, and so I choose to use this application via the iMessage app instead, it’s 100% faulty. If this were fixed I’d rate it higher. But for that reason...I’m out. A good alternative to this is the ‘Off the Record’ app which functions properly within the iMessage app as far as sending confidential messages or pictures, self destructs, and prevents screen shots, etc.

  • Great concept and app Jun 14, 2019

    By mckumabear
    Been using Confide for a few years. I love the concept that the digital age has caught up to the idea that every message need not be recorded for the ages on a server. Finally a way to have a confidential conversation without fear the written words will appear 10 years from now for nefarious reasons.

  • Screen View Jan 11, 2018

    By M99inspect
    I like the app and all and now you can’t do screen shots which is a good thing but I have a comment having to do with using an iPhone. If I double tap the Home button (I have a 7+) you see programs that had been opened and one of them in my case would be Confide. Well the name of the person I “Confide in” shows up so maybe there’s a way to illuminate the name from showing.

  • Issues Oct 31, 2017

    By Smitty Werben jager man jenson
    The app is great but you need to make it so they cant screenshot it at all, or at least tells you if they do. I tested it with myself and you can hold on the text and still take a screenshot. Also i cant send a picture by using the "take a picture" button but i can with camera roll. Other than those issues it is great.

  • Photos Oct 30, 2019

    By ika1ka85
    When I go to the Photos app, or take a screenshot of my screen on a different app, if I want to share it, I can’t find Confide on the list of apps to use to send the photo. I see iMessage, Signal, and other apps to share the photo with, but not Confide. Is this intentional or it’s supposed to be on the list if I want to share a photo from the Photos app?

  • Seems pretty secure & it’s free!!! Aug 12, 2018

    By ZeeeDatzMi*
    However, it’s version that cost money seems more secure and I would recommend it if you’re really trying to fly under the radar. Because the regular app has a flaw and allowing people to screenshot your messages when using iOS at least.

    This appears to be a reasonable secure messaging app when I read the literature about privacy located in the app I found out that they have to turn your messages over to the federal government in the event that the government gets a subpoena for them.but if they are totally erased from the system I don't understand how they would be able to recover them.but I would much rather be doing business where the government has to get a subpoena for my messages and not just have someone turn them over

  • Wanted to Like This App Apr 9, 2020

    By VS4Many
    Loved all of the features, but it wouldn’t allow me to enter contacts manually. It wanted to send invites from the email connected to my iOS and I didn’t want clients having my personal email address. It absolutely wouldn’t let me send a message to anyone without trying to get into my contacts. Deleted app and searching for another one that allows me more privacy.

    By Michael Troester
    the interface to read messages is tedious, and the client js lacking features unless you pay for the $5-$10/month premium upgrade. guys? I'm pretty sure Signal encrypted messenger does everything your app does, but better, for free. Maybe the compamy behind Confide should consider making premium a fixed one time fee.

    This app was charged to my card and the payment was not authorized. I reached out to Confide and was told to provide my order number and a refund would be issued. That was on January 25th and still I have not received my refund. I submitted my order number within 30 minutes of getting their email. They have responded once to my dozen emails stating now that I need to contact Google play for a refund. Now my emails cannot be delivered to Confide. Very angry!
