Network administrators already have a lot on their plates as they adapt to chal- lenges laid out by their agency's mobile device policies. Lately they have some- thing else to keep them up at night. There are several apps available that will delete content sent from a mobile device after a speci ed timeframe. Snapchat, designed for sending photos, is one. Wikr, with which users can send encrypted, self-destructing voice, text or audio, is another. There also are websites that let people send self-deleting messages. On Burn Note, for instance, the sender writes a message, enters an e-mail address and sets the amount of time the message will be available. After that, it disappears. The makers of these services promote them as a way to have private commu- nications while also using those devices for work. The services do provide a measure of personal security. But for government employees, these services could be a problem. Governments have established rules for storing e-mail and other electronic communications that constitute a public record. But when a message disappears on its own, who's to say what was in it? A big fear about these services is that they would make leaks harder to trace, according to Information Week. In some ways, apps like these could be a boon if used properly. Some agency rules, for instance, want e-mails that don't qualify as public documents deleted after 90 days. Set- ting them to delete automatically could save admins a little trouble. But again, who would decide which e-mails are to be kept or deleted? As agencies develop their mobile and BYOD management practices, one recommendation is that they review apps before allowing users to add them to their devices. • Self-deleting e-mails: An enterprise nightmare?
