Burn Note (link) is a free web service that allows you to send messages with utmost secrecy. The service gives you the ability to password-protect your email/digital messages before it can be viewed by the recipient online. And the real cream of the crop is: recipients only get the chance to read your message once; Burn Note has this self-destructing technology that automatically deletes the message once it is read, leaving no trace online or on your computer.
How Does It Work?
Sending a secure message with Burn Note is quite straight-forward. All you have to do is to visit their nifty website, type in your message, optionally assign a password, and hit “Send”. Burn Note will then automatically generate a unique link which you can send to anyone via email, SMS, or other digital means of your choice.
When the recipient opens your password-protected Burn Note link, he will then be taken to a page prompting for a password. And supposed a valid password has been entered, recipient can then read and destroy the note.
Burn Note allows emails to be viewed for 60 seconds, then “self-destruct”, becoming untraceable online or on your computer.
