Dust is the safer place to text.
Dust combines the EASE of a text with the SAFETY of a private phone call.
Messages on Dust can never be recovered. Unlike standard text messaging where everything you say is stored on phones or servers, Dust conversations are heavily encrypted and not accessible by anyone, not even us.
You can even erase YOUR messages off THEIR phone. No records, no worry.
NO TRACE LEFT BEHIND
Whether sharing things legal, medical, or political, talking about finance or romance, discussing personal matters or co-worker chatter, Dust is the safer place to have private conversations that need to stay private.
Messages sent on Dust automatically erase after 24 hours.
A screenshot cannot prove who sent a message because names are not displayed in private chat rooms. Dust also detects and notifies you if a screenshot is taken.

Ratings and Reviews
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.
Update is TERRIBLE
Took a good app and turned it into a joke. A private messaging app that was subtle, discrete and easy to use is now loud, obnoxious, slow and feels like it’s been designed by a 7 year old.
Needless flashy video at log in automatically draws attention to your screen and the app by anyone within 20ft of you. The need for verification by text message every time you log in is pointless if you use it on the same device and again draws attention to the use of the app. Takes longer to log in and log out. The color scheme is shocking! Designed by a 7 year old. Lime green on black will draw every ones attention to your screen now.
In summary what was previously a good app is now useless! Can’t begin to convey how disappointed I am with it.

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!
