Chatting, the evolved form of messaging is way more than just plain texting. Words are just a mere part of the conversation and there are emoticons as well as pictures being shared that were previously a part of the social interaction you had on websites like Facebook or via Email. So when so much of your personal data is being shared over a chat, security is definitely an issue that might be a threat for you. There are so many cases of hacking that we’ve witnessed, but in these cases we have a double threat. Apart from hackers, there are some sneakers as well who are always in search of some gossip cakes and your photos with your girlfriend certainly serve as the piece they’d like their teeth upon. So what can you do to keep your secrets alive? You certainly can’t stop them; you’ll have to find a solution and we think that we have one for you!

I am talking about the iOS app called ccPing that has been developed by Theta Software Lab. The app is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch and iPad and requires iOS 5.0 or any later version of the OS. This app has also been optimized for iPhone 5.


ccPing has all your fronts covered with a strong armour of passwords and encryption. While your messages are secure on their servers, the on-device messages are always under a scanner. If you feel that someone can read your chat or might attempt to do so, you can use paraphrasing with your chat partner. So your message will be encoded and you’ll have to enter a paraphrase to decode it (which is known to the two of you only). Now if you have more than one device that you use all at the same time such as your Laptop, then most of the times you have to revert back to your phone again and again to check the notifications. But with ccPing, you can login with the same account on different devices much to your relief.

Auto expiry is a feature that’s nowadays being used quite extensively to keep a message safe between you two. But along with that feature, ccPing is also allows you to undo your message. That means that if you’ve sent a message by mistake or you’ve just realised that you’ve sent a wrong message, no need to feel the guilty. You can undo your message and it will be deleted from your as well as the recipient’s device. That’s really a very helpful feature.


ccPing also helps you keep a backup of your messages on ccPing server or Dropbox. So if you’re accustomed to changing phones regularly or have lots of children around, it certainly will help you avoid a confusing situation.

Overall, apart from being a user friendly chat application, ccPing is a smart tool as well with utmost security features installed. So I would definitely recommend this free application to all.

Pros: user friendly and smart app; auto expiry messages; undo messages; cloud backup; free.

Cons: none.

I will give this app 4.5 out of 5 stars.
