Just launched: HASH (hash.me), a startup incubating at Venture Hive, has released an app that allows people to communicate privately through messages that are untraceable and screenshot-proof. Especially targeted at politicians and business people who value their privacy, HASH Private Messenger brings to mobile the confidence and security that feel when they have a private conversation in person, says Mayer Mizrachi, the founder of HASH, now a team of five. The free app launched recently at the Apple AppStore. An Android app is in beta testing, says Mizrachi.
