Two Star rating out of 5. ★★

The Internet is forever.

Your private communications don´t need to be.

Wickr is a free app that provides:

·military-grade encryption of text, picture, audio and video messages
·sender-based control over who can read messages, where and for how long
·best available privacy, anonymity and secure file shredding features
·security that is simple to use

Wickr was founded in San Francisco, California by a team of security and privacy experts that believe private communications is a universal human right that is extremely important to a free society. Today, that right is almost nonexistent. Wickr protects Article 12 of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

Wickr’s founders also believe that anonymous communications is important to our political and social discourse. Wickr supports the 1st Amendment of the United States.

Our patent-pending technology brings sophisticated security and privacy to everybody. Wickr’s protocol for ephemeral messaging and media uses standard encryption algorithms (AES256, ECDH521, RSA 4096 &TLS) implemented for mobile devices. This protocol will be integrated into other communications platforms, creating a unified mobile messaging platform that is private, encrypted and anonymous.
