AnonDrop is for sharing anonymous encrypted messages with others. It works kind of a like a dead drop where people can leave messages that can later be picked up without being associated with an IP address, URL, email, or user account.
We believe in real privacy and recognize the legitimate need to communicate online free of any identification. We come up with creative ways to log as little information as possible while still supporting a functional messaging system. All of your messages are encrypted so we couldn't even open them if we wanted too and we don't associate any user information with our messages.
When you create a new message it gets associated with an AnonDrop ID of your choice or we will pick one for you. This ID can be shared with others so that they can find your message on AnonDrop. You can choose to password protect the message so it can't be either read or overwritten. Additional security options can be selected to destroy the message after it has been read a certain number of time or after a specific period. Expired AnonDrop IDs are reused later so further obfuscate a message sender's identity.
No, AnonDrop lets communicate with others privately and anonymously for legitimate legal purposes. We didn't build AnonDrop to help in your evil, criminal master plan. If you use AnonDrop to break the law we have no problem cooperating with law enforcement.
No and we will remove your messages
No and we will report you to the FBI
No. Shut up, crime!
We encrypt messages on our server so they can't be opened unless someone knows the read password and the AnonDrop ID associated with the message. So only people you share this with should be able to read your message.
Yes. If you don't set the read password the message is not encrypted so anyone who knows the AnonDrop ID can find it and read it.
Yes, encode a file as BASE64 so it will be text then use it as a message. There is however a maximum size limit.
We suggest Chrome with an incognito window

The idea came about after the Petraeus scandal. I thought it was pretty amazing that the best the director of the CIA could for private communication was use a dummy Gmail account and the draft box. I guess it was kinda clever, but I think most people would expect more out of the head of the CIA and the whole thing unraveled fast once the FBI started looking into it. The problem was that Gmail and other services like it aren't built for private communication. Emails can easily be requested and they are directly associated with some form of identity. I started looking around better services that he could have used, but I didn't find anything I really liked. There were some encrypted mail and text services that looked promising, however they didn't remove the association with identity. I wanted identityless private information sharing which is kinda tricky since you need some form of identity to figure out where to send your message too. So this idea came about modeled after a dead drop where people could agree upon a semi-secret location and leaving encrypted messages while making it difficult to track them.
