Similar to Mission Impossible, when you send a message using the Wickr app it will self-destruct after a certain amount of time.

In today's world where we send information fast and freely, sometimes it would be nice to not have the things we text people remain permanently on their phones. With the Wickr app, control is put in your hands the next time you choose to send someone a text message, photo, or video. Wickr works by letting you send encrypted messages that delete once they've been opened after a certain amount of time of your choosing, the only caveat however, is they the receiver will need do download the app as well.

The Wickr app is currently available for iPhone and Andoird.
