Secret will be integrating with the Russian social network VKontakte

Russia’s one of those places where people could benefit from more privacy protections for their digital conversations. Fortunately, anonymous messaging app Secret is rumored to be teaming up with Russia’s largest social network VKontakte on a new set of secure communication features. The Secret integration into VK won’t just be limited to pulling in a person’s address book; it will also use that social data to add “a new dimension” to the service. What that is exactly, we don’t know. My guess is that the tools will give you a greater degree of control over how secure your communications are, even if you’re not entirely anonymous.

Secret, the iOS and Android app that lets you share messages anonymously, is working on an integration with the popular Russian social network VKontakte (VK), The Next Web has learned. The partnership will involve more than simply offering VK as a new option in Secret’s share window, however. We’re told that the company wants to add “a new dimension” to who users interact with and receive messages from. It sounds like Secret wants to pull people’s contacts from VK – not just their address book – and notify them when one of their friends posts a message. Secret branched out of the US in April and is now available worldwide. As data from App Annie shows, the app has proven to be quite “sticky” in Russia; the iOS version was ranked fourth overall in the App Store on May 28.
