How to send a message? Is it possible to send messages directly from ProtectedMSG ?
ProtectedMSG creates a hyperlink (link) to your message. You can copy it and send via e-mail or instant messaging service to any recipient.

No. If you want to send messages to multiple recipients at once you must always create a new message for each single person. This is how we make ProtectedMSG private messaging system. We cannot guarantee privacy, when message is sent to more than one receipient at once.

Just open the link itself, the message will be self-destructed after opening.

When you create a message, just check the box to send you a notification e-mail when message has been read. Once your receipient will open it, you will be notified.

Yes, just as you won't be able to stop the recipient from doing a screenshot of the message. You cannot prevent that content has been copied. ProtectedMSG ensures you that created message will not be re-read by anyone, because it does not physically exist in the database. What the recipient does with the message is not our responsibility.

No. The message is permanently removed once someone clicks the link. There is no way to restore it from the browsers history.
