Keep your text messages and your call logs private! Block text messages and calls from anyone! The *coolest* text messaging app out there! HMT *Invisible*!! Hide your private messages with this app!
Hide text messages for 5 contacts safely with a password protected “Decoy App”. Once you download this app it will place an “Invisible” icon in your app drawer. Hide text messages for selected contacts. These text messages will not be put in “regular” text message apps. Text messages in the app are completely separate and secure. When text messages are received, you get a notification in the status bar that says, “Subscription notice,” which makes it look like it has a “subscription error.” Only you will know it’s a notification for a text message.
When a contact is removed, hidden text messages do not go into your “regular” text messaging box. Does not transfer existing messages – the two areas are completely separate! Does not support MMS. Does not automatically delete messages like Cyberdust.
The hide call log feature allows you to hide all incoming, outgoing and missed calls. You must place the outgoing call from inside the app and you have the choice of saving your call logs inside the app!!!
The Block text messaging feature will allow you to block incoming text messages. You have the option to save the blocked text messages so you can read them after you “unblock” the contact. Or discard text messages as they come in. You can still send text messages to blocked contacts. The “Call Block” feature is for contacts that are a pain. You have the option to save call logs for these blocked calls.
It does not remove or change your “regular” text message icon in the app drawer. This is a decoy application that allows you to hide text or block calls and text messages with password protection. This is similar to CATE - Call and Text Eraser, or Shady SMS. This does not automatically delete messages like Cyberdust.
It is a totally blank icon. It’s like magic (we wanted to show a rabbit popping out of a hat, but when we made it invisible… well, you get the idea…)
