Ansa is a private messenger that gives you control of the things you share. With options to chat off the record so no trace of a conversation is left behind, send self destructing photos and videos, and erase messages shared with friends in the past, you always have the tools to express yourself freely.
Ansa is the safest place to be yourself and communicate with friends. With Ansa, you have all the features of a rich-media messenger with the added benefit of control.
No. It's 100% free. Enjoy!
Ansa is available for Android and iOS.
Click Find and Add friends in the menu options on the left of the app. Then enter your friend’s username or email if you know it. Alternately, you can invite your friends directly from your phone’s contact list or from your Facebook account
Ansa is for personal conversations. Sorry, you can’t start a group chat, but you can send the same message to multiple recipients. Just compose the message, photo, video, or drawing from the home page, then select multiple recipients on the send screen. The message will be delivered to each individual as a separate conversation.
It's ok. Use the password reset option on the login page to reset it and log in.
Yes, select the gear in the conversation you are having with the person and click “Block User”. You can also search for the user in “Find and Add Friends” or ﬁnd the user in your contacts and block them this way.

Absolutely not. All conversations in Ansa are conﬁdential. If somebody takes a screenshot of a conversation, both parties will be notiﬁed, and the person who captured the image will have his or her account ﬂagged for inappropriate behavior.
Every time you erase a message you sent on Ansa, the messages is removed from both your own phone and that of the recipient. Consider this your undo button.
As per our terms of service, you agree protect and treat information shared “Off-the-Record”, or in self-destruct mode as confidential. A breech of this confidentiality could result in legal charges.Please, no screenshots.
A self-destructing photo or video is a photo or video that can only be viewed for a few seconds before disappearing from the phone forever.
Every time you send a photo, video, or drawing using Ansa you have the option to use the self-destruct feature. Hit the timer symbol, and select the number of seconds you want your message to exist. When the recipient opens the message, the countdown will begin. When the time expires, the message will disappear and erase forever.
"Off-the-Record" mode allows you to have discussions that disappear in real time. When you are "Off-the-Record", every message exchanged is automatically erased 60 seconds after it has been read.
If one person switches to "Off-the-Record", the other person is automatically switched to "Off-the-Record" too. This way, both people know the whole conversation disappears from both phones.
When you stop chatting “Off-the-Record” the messages you send are saved and stored on both people’s phones. If you change your mind, you can always erase a message using Synced-Deletion.
The messages you send and receive while “Off-the-Record” disappear 60 seconds after they have been read. When the time is up they disappear from the recipient’s phone, then yours, and our server.
No. Everything you delete on Ansa is also erased from our servers. We only keep copies of the things you do.
When you tell a message to erase using our self-destruct timer, or “Off the Record” mode, it will not disappear from your phone until it has been erased from the recipient’s phone. When it leaves your phone, you know it’s been erased from your friend’s phone too.
The messages you send while “Off-the-Record” stay on your phone until they disappear from the recipient’s phone, so you know they have been deleted successfully.
No. Every message is encrypted, and can not be viewed by us.
