We remember Hollywood movies where spy receive message and after the full message read, messages says, “This message will self-destruct in X seconds.” Then we think whether this is possible or not. There are some situations we face where we need to send a message that we do not want other person to store anywhere. It may be a password sharing or anything other. To handle these situations, we need a service that sends messages and then message gets deleted automatically.

When the person on the other side will read the message, message will destroy itself. It means messages can be viewed only once. If you are looking for this kind of service, These web apps may help you.
