Crystal clear voice and video calls.
Chats full of pics, movies, GIFs, music, sketches and more.
Always private and secure with end-to-end encryption.


• PRIVATE AND SECURE. Everything you send on Wire is end-to-end encrypted.

• NO PROFILING. Wire cannot read your messages, and does not share or sell your data or contact details to anyone.

• PHONE NUMBER OR EMAIL. Register with phone number on mobile, or with email on desktop, then log in with the same account on mobile.

• OPEN SOURCE. Anyone can verify the security of Wire by auditing the code available on GitHub.

• MOBILE, TABLET, DESKTOP. Chats are always in sync and you don’t need your phone to log in on desktop.

• GROUPS. Wire is great for private and secure group conversations with up to 128 people.

• TIMED MESSAGES. Control how long others see your messages, pictures, videos.

• DELETE. Posted something to a wrong chat by accident? No problem, delete it from all receiving devices.


• VOICE AND VIDEO CALLS. Crystal clear quality, developed by the original audio team from Skype.

• GROUP CALLS. Add up to 10 people and enjoy the virtual stereo effect (with headphones) to help you understand who’s talking.

• AUDIO AND VIDEO MESSAGES. Record and send, or choose a clip from your device. There are even fun audio filters to modify your voice.

• GIFS AND SKETCHES. Send a funny GIF or sketch with your finger (try also sketch-on-photo) to send a unique reply.

• FILE SHARING. Securely transfer any file from your device, or from cloud services like iCloud, Google Drive or Dropbox.

• LOCATION SHARING. Meeting up or giving instructions is easy – just share your current location.

• VIDEOS AND MUSIC. Share a Youtube, Vimeo or SoundCloud link in a chat and others can play it without leaving Wire.

Customer Reviews

Best complete messaging app. Period!

Wire is flat out THE best messaging app I've ever used. Better than Whatsapp, Telegram, Signal, you name it. And they keep updating it every few weeks with new features.

Better features like video calling, GIF support, recalling messages, and now expiring messages. And all the usual stuff too like group texting, voice calling, video and voice messages, file/photo/video/location sharing, and more.

Better privacy and security. EVERYTHING is ALWAYS end to end encrypted. And unlike whatsapp, Wire client is 100% open source so you have programming and cyber security experts independently checking the code to ensure no spying is possible. With whatsapp being closed source, you really can't be sure what it's doing behind the scenes. And unlike Whatsapp, Wire does not require access to your contacts and does not require a phone number (u can sign up on the web app with email).

Wire is free with zero ads and they never share any personal information with third parties, unlike whatsapp and others.

Wire truly is the best messaging app out right now in terms of features, security, and privacy. Its only disadvantage is fewer users than more popular apps, but that is something u can change by getting ur friends to try it. Chances are they'll love it and want to switch.

Simple UI with high level of security behind

Really enjoy this app and service! Still some work is needed to make UI even smoother, but it is at higher level than other messengers (at least give it a try)

Best encryption!

I'm pulling for them this is by far the best encrypted app! Still a bit buggy with AirPods on iPhone 7+.
