This message will self-destruct in five seconds: Hainault company invents ‘Mission: Impossible’ style app
Technology wizards in Hainault have invented a phone app that sends self-destructing text messages for ultimate secrecy.
SOA Networks, based in Hainault Business Park, Fowler Road, launched Destructible Text in 160 countries last week.
The iPhone app deletes texts “without a trace” after they are read.
But will people use it for unsavoury purposes?
Company director Sam Seller said: “Some people will think it’s an app for relationship cheats but it’s also for fun like pranking your friends.

“It’s really for everyone to have a bit of fun.”
Mr Seller said SOA Networks was in discussions to feature the app in film Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol but missed the deadline by six months.
