'TigerText' on mobiles, new headache for security agencies
PRESS TRUST OF INDIA
New Delhi, June 12: 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 a complete control over messaging with a function to auto delete when 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 Union Home Ministry to issue a directive to Department of Telecom asking them to direct service providers to ensure proper legal interception before its launch in phones in the country. "Before launch of this service, proper arrangements for legal interception, monitoring and prior approval of the legal enforcement agencies are required," the directive issued to DoT states.
