The sender and receiver decide upon a message identifier in advance of the message’s creation and circulation. The sender marks the message with the chosen message identifier upon creation, and the receiver looks for a message with that message identifier. Once the message is found and displayed, it will be deleted from our database. (Upon hitting the “clear message” button, or upon leaving the page.) It’s that simple.

To send a message to a receiver, you must coordinate with the recipient beforehand. You will both agree upon, and remember, a “Message Identifier,” and the recipient should have a sense of when to expect the message as narrowing down a time-frame will help the receiver to know when to start looking. (Message alerts may become available in the future).

Once the message identifier is agreed upon, the message can be sent at any time. Later, when it is time for the message to be sent, the sender types the message identifier into the “message identifier” field. If by chance someone out there in the big world is already using that identifier, you will be prompted to create another unique identifier.

IMPORTANT: If you do not want your previously agreed upon message identifier to be rejected or hi-jacked, AGREE UPON A VERY UNIQUE message identifier BEFORE attempting to send a message, AND CHECK to see if it is available by doing a preliminary search. (Simply type your potential message identifier into the “message identifier” field above where you would type in your message.. If it is already being used, it will say “restricted”.) Once the message identifier is entered into the corresponding field, add your message, by typing the message into the associated text field, which is also in the “Post Message” section, and then simply clicks “post.”

Once posted, the notice “Data Inserted Correctly” will appear, and both the message identifier and message field will clear and ready for a new message. The sent message will remain available for 3 days, or until the message has been received, whichever comes first. IMPORTANT NOTE: THE SYSTEM WILL AUTOMATICALLY DELETE YOUR MESSAGE AFTER 72 HOURS or upon a successful search of the message identifier.

Once the message has been sent, the intended receiver, who is ALREADY AWARE the message should arrive within a certain time frame may begin to search for the message by simply typing the message identifier into the “Message Identifier” search field. If a message associated with the corresponding message identifier is found, the message will appear in the “Search Results For (message identifier)” box. As soon as the page is refreshed, or upon a search for a new identifier, the message is automatically deleted. The purpose of the message identifier is literal, in that it identifies YOUR message. It DOES NOT identify the sender OR the receiver.

THE POINT In the act of communication, the 4 fundamental components are the sender or broadcaster, the message itself, the platform or format of the message and the receiver or audience. In order for the messages to be seen or received by the correct audience, SOMETHING needs to be identified. The component that is being identified is dependant on the platform. Typically, in most online communication platforms, including communications like emails, texts, all sorts of social media platforms and forums, what is being identified is either the sender or the receiver. This is done via user accounts with passwords and login names, 2-step verification, bio-metrics, fingerprint readers, facial recognition and more. While those methods of security protect the users of those platforms to some degree, we are taking a different approach: We do not collect ANY information about out users in the first place. Instead of getting a communication delivered by having our users identify themselves ad nausium, we simply identify the message. There is no need for us to know who is sending or receiving messages. THEY know who they are and if the sender can stamp an identifier onto the message that is wished to be received by a particular person, that person can find it if they know how to identify their intended message. There is no need for everyone to have top secret level security credentials with eye scans and GPS location locks and all that other super future Orwellian level security and user id verification.


About the critical importance of proper message identifier creation

  1. Each message identifier allows for 7 to 10 characters and a unique message identifier is required for every message.
  2. It is CRITICAL for a successfully sent and received message to have a SOLID message Identifier. The identifier should be unlike any other password that anyone else would use within the last few days. The longer a chosen identifier stays within our system, the higher the likelihood someone may come up with the same identifier. Restricting the life of a message to 3 days means it is less likely a complicated message identifier will be already in the system.
  3. It is up to the sender and the receiver to come up with a unique message identifier to help ensure that the message is not intercepted. IMPORTANT NOTICE TO FREE USERS: QUIETMESSAGE.COM does not restrict others from potentially using the same identifiers, beyond restricting the life of a message or its message identifier to 3 days. Consequently, the security and successful transmission of your message is up to YOU. QUIETMESSAGE.COM accepts ZERO responsibility for “lost” or intercepted messages. A message identifier comprised of poorly chosen, commonly used phrases, is susceptible to hijacking and/or interception by unwanted third parties. While that is true of ANY message sent in QUIETMESSAGE.COM, it is considerably less likely with a wisely chosen message identifier.
    For example: which of the two following sample message identifiers are more likely to be used in the next 3 days?: “#&DolLRQ8“ or “PASSWORD123”?
  4. Ultimately, it is important to keep in mind that the message identifier is NOT meant to “express” the personalities of the users involved. It is meant to protect the contents of the message and get it to the right person. It should be very unlikely that someone else has used it within the last few days. However, that said, it should also be a sequence that both parties can remember.
  5. When a user sends out a message, if an individual who is NOT the intended receiver enters YOUR message identifier when creating their own post, they WILL see a message that says “Restricted! Message Identifier Already In Use!” The intercepting party will be then prompted to create another message identifier. HOWEVER, the intercepting party has now been made aware that the message identifier is associated with an existing message and may attempt to retrieve your message.
  6. In such case, the intercepting party will see the message that you intended for another individual. While the message WILL be completely meaningless to an accidental interceptor, the message will be deleted once read, which means the intended recipient will not find their message.
  7. It should also be noted that the individual who just read your message and caused its deletion may use that same message identifier for a message to someone else. (which would be as rude as it is foolish). This could lead to the intended recipient of the original message to find a hi-jacked message instead, and THAT message is deleted. In such a scenario NO ONE will receive their intended message. And QUIETMESSAGE.COM accepts ABSOLUTELY NO responsibility for lost or intercepted messages.
  8. QUIETMESSAGE.COM is not “certified mail.” Delivery of messages is not insured in any way. The best insurance that messages will be delivered to intended recipients is that sender and receiver create strong message identifiers, sender and receiver keep the message identifiers secret, sender and receiver both know the message identifiers, and that sender and recipient receive messages ONLY from known persons.
  9. In short, it is up to users to understand how QUIETMESSAGE.COM works and to CREATE EXPECTIONALLY UNIQUE MESSAGE IDENTIFIERS!
