People are just noticing iPhone hack to send handy ‘secret texts’ to your friends | #hacking | #cybersecurity | #infosec | #comptia | #pentest | #hacker

A GENIUS iPhone hack lets you send “secret” texts to your pals.

It works using an iPhone hack called Invisible Ink, which is tucked away inside the Messages app.

The feature is designed to stop people peering over your shoulder to read your iMessages.

And it’s available for free as standard with iOS on all iPhone models.

Every time you send an Invisible Ink message, it will be scribbled out on the screen.

That means anyone quickly glancing at your phone, or scrolling through it, won’t immediately see your messages.

The message is hidden for you and also the recipient.

Only when you tap and hold on the message will it appear.

If someone is looking over your shoulder, they’ll simply see a blank message.

It’s also a great trick to send funny surprises to pals.

And if you regularly discusses movie and TV show spoilers in group chats, it’s a great way to avoid ruining the fun for everyone involved.

Sadly, it only works in iMessage – so you can’t use the feature on WhatsApp.

How to use Invisible Ink on your iPhone

Go into Messages and then open an iMessage chat with someone.

Type a message just like you normally would.

But instead of tapping Send, hold down on the icon with your finger.

This prompts a hidden menu to appear.

You’ll want to choose the bottom option: Invisible Ink.

Select that one and then hit Send.

Now your message will be hidden from view – until you tap it.

It will eventually fade out again, requiring another tap to view.

On bigger messages, you’ll need to hold or tap different parts of the text to unlock it all.
