SeeOnce is my new privacy app, which achieves something rather extraordinary: it does away completely with key management chores and makes everything automatic while providing fully client-based forward-secrecy encryption where messages can be read only once.
This is no Snapchat refusing to let you see a message again (though they have it). It is no Virtru or Dmail, either, where the key (Virtru) or the encrypted message (Dmail) is denied to you after a certain amount of time. This is the real thing. Keys exist only on the sender’s and recipient’s machines, and they are overwritten as soon as a new message is encrypted or decrypted. There are no extra copies.
People at the UK, India, Australia, and other places (see my previous article on this) are going to find SeeOnce quite handy. Now they can hand in their personal Keys if requested by the competent authority, but still their email will remain unreadable to them.
You can get SeeOnce at https://SeeOnce.net or as a Chrome app at https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/seeonce-privacy/jbcllagadcpaafoeknfklbenimcopnfc
