QuickForget lets you share secrets electronically that eventually self-destruct

While disseminating sensitive information via a third-party is not entirely desirable overall, it could be a better method than sending it to a GMail account you might accidentally leave logged in at a public terminal in Best Buy one day.

Data like credit cards are predictable in their patterns, but there is other information you may not entrust the recipient (yourself or other people) to immediately delete after reading. Of course, someone could easily take a screenshot of the screen and email it to themselves, but using QuickForget to send sensitive messages at least eliminates the issue of a forgotten saved email coming back to you.

To use the service, open QuickForget, enter your message, and stipulate a number of viewings or time period until the message expires. After that, it will no longer be readable. Lifehacker points out, however, that the site has no Terms of Use- there is a short message at the bottom of the screen that reads:

For example, you can send a username through email, save a password with us, and feel comfortable sharing user credentials because all the information is not in a single location.

We will not set any cookies, and we save no identifiable information. Once your secret has expired we purge it from our database and keep no archives.

Would you trust a service like QuickForget with sensitive data? Is this a service that might come in handy from time to time?
