International Security Expert Bill Stanton Supports the Use of BigString Corporation's New Secure Instant Message Service for Online Safety and Security

RED BANK, NJ--(Marketwire - April 24, 2008) - BigString Corporation (OTCBB: BSGC), an innovator in secure online technology and communication, today received the support of national security expert "Wild Bill" Stanton. Stanton, a former New York City Police officer and security expert, has advised a host of corporations and A-list celebrities on personal security and protection. His insightful tips and strategies for success have been featured on the "Today Show," CNBC and many other news programs, as well as in New York Magazine and a host of other print publications. BigString launched its secure online Instant Message platform on April 16, 2008, as an evolution of BigString's recallable email and messaging products.

"Everyday we hear stories of people, from celebrities to the average person on the street, whose online communication is used in a way that was not intended, whether that is identity theft or instant messages copied and passed along to third parties without consent," Stanton said. He added, "BigString's new technology returns privacy and security to the consumer and should be used by anyone who communicates in real-time online."

BigString IM users can send instant messages (IMs) that self-destruct after being sent. Additionally, IMs sent via BigString's service cannot be copied, logged or screen-printed.

BigString IM is a free advertising supported service available at http://www.bigstring.com. It is available as a web version or as a free plug-in for AOL's AIM.

The patent-pending technology leaves no trail or copy of the IM on any server once the message self-destructs. The time for self-destruction is set by the sender, and can be set to disappear in as little as a few seconds to over an hour. The sender can also choose a number of visual effects for the self-destruction. A message will disappear in real time simultaneously from both the sending and receiving IM screens.
