BitTorrent Launches ‘Bleep’ Messaging App for iOS & Android [Video]

Want more privacy in your mobile messenger? Try Bleep! It’s a new messaging app by BitTorrent.

Bleep is a fun and easy instant messaging app that is completely private. No social networks. With Bleep, you can chat via text, make free voice calls, or whisper. What do we mean by whisper? Chat history can be convenient, but some conversations should never be saved. Sending a whisper to a friend means your messages disappear after they are read. Whisper it, read it, and move on.

Be Bold, with a Whisper.
Brand new for this release, is the ability to send whisper messages with Bleep. For parts of a conversation that you’d like to keep temporary,
tapping “Go to Whisper” on your phone sends messages and pictures that disappear from devices after they’ve been viewed (25 seconds); holding
shift on PC and Ctrl on Mac while hitting send does this on your desktop. You can switch back and forth between normal and whisper messages
seamlessly, so you don’t lose the flow of your conversation.

Screenshot, or Not?
Whisper messages have additional protection for screenshots. If a friend manages to capture the screen, they won’t be able to capture who said
what, since nicknames are blocked out. And if you forget who you’re whispering with, you tap the “eye” to display the nickname, but the
conversation gets blurred. They can capture the conversation or the sender, but not both at the same time.
