New app deletes awkward texts

A new app has been created that allows users to delete the text messages they've sent before the recipient reads them.

Protect Your Privates - a mobile phone software - allows people to retrieve the embarrassing messages they've sent in the heat of the moment or accidentally to the wrong person before the innocent receiver even locks eyes on them.

The free app, which is available to download on iOS, doesn't just banish the message from the phone, but it also erases the cringe-worthy text from the server completely.

But the free app doesn't just stop at erasing messages, as it also has a built-in function that prevents people from taking screengrabs, according to the Daily Mirror newspaper.
