DUST: The app that protects your ass(ets)
Co-Founded by Mark Cuban
DUST gives you control over your digital life. We believe online life is real life, so only you should control what is known about you. Our users are protected—free from worry of prying eyes, data mining, sketchy hackers, and the paranoia that your words could come back to haunt you—freedom for everything that makes you, YOU.
DUST includes three core privacy tools: Encrypted Messenger, Stealth (Incognito) Search, and
Identity Watchdog. Read more below...
For everyday texting and sharing photos with friends, family and colleagues, or exchanging more sensitive information such as credit cards, social security numbers, bank information, wire transfer instructions, passwords, or medical records – DUST is the most secure private texting & messaging application.
1) Unsend any message, anytime.
2) Detects and notifies you if a screenshot is taken
3) Automatically erases history after 24 hours.
Rest assured knowing DUST conversations are heavily encrypted and not accessible by anyone, not even us. You can even erase messages off THEIR phone in real-time. Once a message is deleted on DUST it can never be recovered, period. Send secret texts.
There’s no such thing as a dumb question--but there are dumb searches. Privately search the web with Stealth Search.
1) No cookies
2) No tracking
3) No fear
Go incognito and avoid embarrassment and never worry about your search data being tied back to you with Stealth Search.
Watchdog is our sleepless, pixelated guardian. He sniffs out the hackers trying to steal your passwords and tells you if your data has been compromised in any past data breaches.
1) Free reports
2) Instant alerts (Watchdog Pro)
3) Protection 24/7 (Watchdog Pro)
Want real-time alerts? Upgrade to Watchdog Pro and you will receive instant notifications if your data has been compromised in a new breach. Never let your identity guard down by subscribing to Watchdog Pro!

HATE THE NEW UPDATES VERSION
The color change is horrible, but that’s the least of it. The fact that you have to delete all the messages you want manually is ridiculous. What’s the point of that. I thought it’s called “dust” because the messages dissapear as soon as they are read. On top of that there is many things that need to be fixed. I’m not getting half the the messages that I should be getting. This is like a completely different app. If this is how the app was when I first downloaded it I wouldn’t use it. PLEASE MAKE IT MORE LIKE IT WAS BEFORE!! I use this every day and it’s making it so much more difficult to use. All in all I hate the changes. So so disappointed!

Dusting it off.
Glad to see this private messenger back at it. Loving the new look and where it’s heading, but would like to see a couple other features. A fingerprint/facial recognition login would be top of my list. Other than that, the user experience is great and it flows well. Security being it’s purpose, they seem to have all of that covered. Over all, love it and can’t wait to see how it evolves.

Thank you so much 😍
Mediocre messaging app with potential. Privacy is NOT guaranteed.
I'd say there's no reason to use this unless you want the free cryptocurrency which may rise in value if this app becomes popular. It lacks many of the features you'd come to expect, and it's buggy as hell.
Other open source apps also have the same privacy protections, but none of these "privacy" texting apps can stop someone from simply video recording the conversation. Names are not displayed on the chat screen, but they are displayed elsewhere. It's easy to get a camera and use that video as proof.
Privacy is only as good as the people in the conversation. If they want to release your secrets, no app can protect from that.
