A hastily sent Facebook post or Twitter message can last forever and come back to bite someone when they’re applying for college or a job. Then there are the prying eyes of parents who can see what their children post online.

As a high school student, privacy is something Nick Pitoniak takes seriously.

Pitoniak, a senior at York Suburban High School who lives in Spring Garden Township, developed a cellphone app called Mutter Mail, which he says lets users send messages back and forth without leaving any trace. The messages disappear within 30 seconds, Pitoniak said.

  1. This sounds like snap chat or photo snap, or whatever that app is called where you can take embarrassing photos and then disappear seconds later. I question the validity of this app and where all of these photos go on snap chat ‘that no one wants to be seen’.
