Confide is an ephemeral messaging app that's end-to-end encrypted, and geared toward professionals. Users run their finger over boxes covering the words of a message in order to only reveal two or three at a time. If someone tries to take a screenshot, the apps kicks them out of the message. Free, available for iOS and Android.
