New Delhi: It is the new "TigerText" software that is on the prowl in the cyber
space giving fresh concerns to security agencies as with it the sender can
delete all the messages, videos and photographs on a recipient's mobile.
The software enables the consumer to have complete control over messaging with a
function to auto delete whenever he wishes to. "With TigerText you can regain
peace of mind and privacy over the personal data you send, setting when they
(should) disappear," the website of the company says.
"Once a TigerText message is gone, it's gone, so feel a little better about your
texting last night," says the US-based company.
A security expert explained that if a customer using TigerText sends a message
to another mobile phone, the sender has the advantage to delete it at his wish
from the recipient mobile.
This has prompted the Union Home Ministry to issue a directive to the Department
of Telecom asking them to direct service providers to ensure proper legal
interception before its launch in phones in the country.
"Before the launch of this service, proper arrangements for legal interception,
monitoring and prior approval of the legal enforcement agencies is required,"
the directive issued to DoT states.
According to the Home Ministry, the use of this service by Indian service
providers may create problems for legal enforcement agencies in their
operational activities. This service is compatible with handsets like iPhone,
Android and Blackberry.
