No Reason At All not to be 5 *’s

Friends in High Places

Here’s the only few flaws.

Apps such as signal allow the user to set an expiration timer in which is programmed per user for ever. EVEN AFTER HE USER DELETED THE MESSAGE THREAD.

On wickr unfortunately it will reset every time you delete a thread.

That being said if you want the messages to expire within a certain time that you say happen to have left it as. The chances are if you deleted the thread you now will have a message that won’t expire for 5-6 days.

Where as in the app “Signal” it will remember if you had a 1-3 hour expiration or a whole day.

The thing about this is when you communicate on a large scale it’s nonsense to keep all the open threads.

But when starting a new conversation with someone the following day it’s now once again on a 5 day expiration because you may forget to reset it.

Obviously signal wants your real phone number to use it which is dumb.

Wickr is an excellent app.

If they could please program it to expire where you left it the last time I would feel along with others who I’ve spoken to would all feel more secure about using “Wickr” to communicate.

Thank you guys for making such an App possible.
It is important even if not say breaking the law that people have their privacy.



Wickr is number 1. You may take some small issue with aesthetics, but that has precisely nothing to do with security. This app beats out the others where it counts. We live in a world that is regressing into censorship. Certain countries, both democratic as well as non-democratic, and even big tech ALL engage in censorship for wrong think. It's very sad. Real 1984 stuff. Americans have it a little better than the rest..for now. No matter, because everyone needs apps like this, as well as protonmail and a good VPN. Censorship, particularly of political views and social topics, is abuse and it's not okay. Also, don't forget to delete tracking cookies and clear history daily, or hourly.

impressive with Touch ID


No ads.

You do NOT need to provide your phone number, email address or access to your contacts.

Update: The touch ID feature is found under the auto logout setting. When you select the value of never the touch ID option is displayed. The new color scheme takes some getting used to.

Update: Wickr today (Dec. 4) launched a desktop client for Windows, Mac and Linux. Users' messages will now also sync across all devices on which a single user's Wickr applications are installed, allowing people to switch between desktop and mobile.

I used this app for several weeks. I don't like how you have to hold your finger on the picture to view it. They did this to reduce the ability to make a screen capture. I just don't care for that design. The good news is that the app works flawlessly on my phone. Message delivery appears to be reliable. I heard that a windows app is being developed. Looking forward to that.
