Presenting: Confide

Confide doesn’t have a community aspect to it like many other top sexting apps: instead, the big draw of this platform is just how secure your data and messaging is. When you find someone with whom you want to have some private sexting, such as an extra-marital affair (check out our review of Ashley Madison if that’s something you’re looking for), chat to them exclusively on Confide to make sure everything you say is totally private and screenshot-proof. Never get caught again thanks to Confide!

Confide review: how the platform works

Confide is different to most other sexting apps we’ve reviewed, since it’s basically just a messaging app. Confide allows you to chat to people you know in a totally safe way. Just open the app, click on a user and start chatting! If nobody you know uses Confide yet, allow Confide access to your contacts and invite anyone you want to speak with to install the app.

How to install Confide

To get started using Confide, first decide whether you want to use confide on your desktop or on your smartphone. If you want to download the app for your computer, just click on the link below and click on “download for free”. Then click on the download button, and the download will start in your browser. When it’s downloaded, just click on the folder in your downloads file to open it. Complete the installation by clicking through the setup, and you’ll be using Confide messenger in no time.

However, in this day and age, more people use Confide for smartphone than for desktop. The smartphone app is even easier to install: just search the App Store or Google Play for “Confide Messenger”. Download the app and open it up, and click on “Sign Up” to create an account. Input your first and last name, email address, and pick a password.

Confide review: what are the website’s different features?

Confide doesn’t have all the fun community based features that some other apps do: it’s made to chat to people you already know. However, it does have some pretty exciting and unique features that allow it to be such a secure place to have secret conversations. Let’s have a look at some of these features.

End-to-end encryption

Chat encryption is the process of scrambling a conversation to make sure its contents stay confidential and private. Encryption changes plain text into “ciphertext”, which is totally unreadable. It can only be transformed back into plaintext with a passcode given to the intended recipient. Encryption means that messages can’t be intercepted and accessed by anyone other than the intended reader.

End-to-end encryption means that the outgoing message on Confide is encrypted by the senders’ device, and can only be decrypted by the receivers’ device, with no need for passcodes or manual encryption.

Cross-platform availability

Confide messenger is available for all of your platforms, whether it’s desktop, phone, or tablet. You can access all your encrypted chats on all of your devices at any time. All of these chats are encrypted and totally private, whatever device you choose to access them on.

Confide has patented screenshot-proof technology that means that both parties are unable to take and distribute screenshots of any conversation that takes place on Confide. This feature is pretty awesome for making sure that the person you’re talking to isn’t going to let your little secret get out: that’s why Confide is so popular for sexting and particularly for those in adulterous relationships.

The technology is known as ScreenShieldKit or “SDK”, and is available for other app developers too.

All these and more great features are available on the Confide app, so check it out today and get full use of all the functionalities that make it the absolute best app for keeping your conversations private.

What’s the Confide community like?

As we’ve already explained, Confide is not a community based app. Whereas some other sexting apps have features that revolve around finding people to sext with such as “swiping”, video chatting, chatrooms and more, Confide concentrates solely on making your spicy chats as safe and secure as possible.

Although this may seem like it makes the app less fun, it does mean that the Confide is good at what it does: concentrating its efforts on one goal means it’s effective! It’s also extremely trustworthy, and doesn’t give off any “scammy” vibes at all. To get some sort of a sense of community with Confide, try adding people you meet on other apps to your Confide messaging app, and keep the conversation going with the most secure chatting app there is!

Confide review: accounts and pricing

Something I really loved about Confide is that the app is totally useable on desktop and on my smartphone for free. However, Confide Plus offers a bunch of great features that aren’t available in the free version. Let’s have a closer look at Confide Plus, and why it’s a good idea to try it out!

Confide Plus offers even more ways to keep your chats private, but also some fun options for personalizing your experience. Here are some of the different features you can expect to get if you upgrade to Confide Plus :

  • Unsend” messages: with Confide Plus, you can retract any and all unread messages.
  • Unlimited attachments: send as many photos, videos and voice recordings per message as you like.
  • Incognito mode: this mode allows users to be totally invisible to anyone you don’t want to find you. This means that if you’re using Confide for anything adulterous, your wife will never find your account!
  • Themes and nicknames: personalize your Confide experience with different themes, and set custom nicknames for all recipients.
  • Access to Confide support: you’ll be a priority customer when it comes to getting tech support from the Confide team.

Confide Plus is available for just €9.99 a month, or €49.99 a year (€4.16/month). All subscriptions will be renewed automatically at the end of the billing period if you don’t cancel, however there’s no commitment, and you may cancel your subscription whenever you like.

Confide review: pros and cons

Perhaps the most important part of my Confide review, is the weighing of the for and against. Any good sexting app has some good and bad things about it, and picking the right one for you means taking a good look at the best and worst things about it. Let’s take a look.

  • End-to-end encryption
  • Affordable premium service
  • Cross-platform compatibility
  • Easy to use and aesthetically pleasing
  • Useable for free
  • No community features

My personal experience with the platform: how did Confide work out for me?

Well, since there’s no community aspect, I can’t very well review how many sexting partners I found through Confide. However, what I can review, is the experience of sexting my regular pen-pals with confide.

You may have already guessed it, but I loved my time using Confide. The app is aesthetically pleasing and easy to use, and has so many features that make it unique.

As someone that needs to hide my spicy affairs from prying eyes, the “screenshot proof” technology was amazing. Knowing that the stuff I was saying could never be used against me was exhilarating, it made me feel safe, like I could get really filthy and nobody would ever know! I sent some pretty ludicrous messages and pictures to my partners, and I don’t have to worry about them getting leaked!

I also made great use of the incognito mode: just in case my wife ever got the bright idea to check Confide and try and find my account, I made sure to be invisible except to my already confirmed friends.

All in all, I very much enjoyed sexting with Confide. It gave me a sense of security, and the personalization options made it very fun!

Confide review: my final thoughts

To bring my review of Confide to a close, I’d like to mention just how easy to use this app is. It’s very to the point, no whistles and bells, and does its job perfectly. I do wish there was a way to meet people to talk to within the app itself, such as a chat room option, but maybe that will come in due time. For now, Confide is the perfect companion for private talks and adulterous affairs without fear of getting caught. Just make sure to hide the app on your phone, and keep everything password protected!

If you’re looking for a free, easy to use app for your sexting needs, why not try Confide?
