Messaging service Viber this month rolled out a new Secret Chats feature. Not to be confused with Secret Messages, a similar feature introduced in Feb, 2017 that lets you define how long your photos, videos and texts are available after the recipient has opened them, Secret Chats use Vibers end to end secret conversations let you set a timer on individual messages so they disappear after a few seconds, get an alert when a screenshot is taken and be sure no messages get forwarded.

While Secret Conversations allowed users to put the self-destructing timer on individual messages, Secret Chats not only let you set a timer on individual messages so they disappear after a few seconds but also block them from being forwarded to other conversations and get notified if the recipient takes a screenshot of the conversation.

Unlike the iOS app, Viber for Android also lets you disable screenshots altogether.
