Designed for sending scrambled photo messages via email, texting, Facebook and Twitter, Yovo offers features such as full encryption, screen capture scrambling and a self-destruct timer that allows a sender to grant viewing rights for as little as one second and as long as 24 hours. These mobile applications are designed to address consumer demand for enhanced Internet privacy through solutions that restrict access to and limit the life of content.
