The Internet is forever. Your private communications don´t need to be.
Send self-destructing messages for free to other Wickr users anywhere in the world while leaving no trace.
Send and receive text, photos, videos, voice and pdfs that are:
- CONTROLLED - sender owns the data and decides who sees what, where and for how long
- PRIVATE - only the recipient sees your data, no strangers or servers in between
- PROPERLY ENCRYPTED - we do not have the keys, each message has a new unique key (ECDH521,RSA4096, AES256, TLS)
- BOUND - each message can only be read on the device it was sent to for added security beyond the math
- ANONYMOUS - we require no personal info from you, we collect nothing about you or what you do
- PROXIED - we proxy the IP between the sender and receiver
- NO METADATA - we delete attachment metadata (location, time, identification and edits)

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 flips messaging on its head, giving control to the sender instead of the receiver (or servers in between). Wickr is becoming the most trusted communication system in the world by giving power to the people.
Wickr uses AES256 to protect data and ECDH521 for the key exchange. RSA4096 is also used as a backup and for legacy app versions. Wickr also uses multiple rounds of SHA256 for hashing and Transport Layer Security (TLS). Encryption keys are used only once then destroyed by the sender’s phone. Each message is encrypted with its own unique key and no two users can have the same AES256 or ECDH521 keys ever (Enhanced Perfect Forward Secrecy-PFS).
Our servers do not have the decryption keys, only the intended recipient(s) on the intended devices can decrypt the messages.
Wickr deletes all metadata from its communications and pictures and its Secure File Shredder, unless deactivated by the user, cleans also the RAM after each message or picture was viewed and then closed.
We cannot prevent screenshots or someone using a camera to take a picture of a message on a screen.
There is no magic pill for betrayal. Therefore, we strongly encourage you to only send private messages to people you trust.

What's New in Version 2.3.2
- Minor bug fixes
Privacy is a Right, unused it will be lost
I love the Ease of use of Wickr. I wish there were settings on each message as to how long before self -destruct, especially pictures, but I use this app with family members in far away places, and foreign countries. I have nothing to hide and the messages are about Soccor Futbal or other little stuff. But my Banking is personal so I use https when I bank. Personal messages should be the same way. There has to be a whisper in a friend or family members ears. Most Email is written for all eternity so be careful what you say using it. Sometimes we say things that should be rephrased or sometimes when we talk we kind of bounce information off another's mind and from feed back we get answers. These conversations are not meant to be dug up by those in our relationships and returned back to us years later. Auto delete after a reasonable period is good. If you do not want it trashed, use e-mail. I give this max stars, but there are possible settings improvements on my iphone version. I still wish there was PGP for the iphone. And until there is this will do just fine.
I never wright review's on Apps. I Should, but as a defense attorney what spare time I have I spend it with my family. That said, I took the time to write this review because some things can not go unnoticed! Wickr and it's designers are heros! Clear and simple. Our data is not safe from others eavesdropping. It is if you use this app. Other apps attempt to make the same claims of security with their apps; I know from experience it just is not true, I have been using this app since a month or so after it's release for secure communications with clients who's rights don't seem mater! This app makes it possible for people to communicate in true privacy. Other than law I have degrees in computer engendering, and have extensive experience with surveillance and counter surveillance. I tell every one, you want privacy get wickr. Thanks guys for watch out for us, your hero's and I expect to see your technology used throughout the internet for secure communication.
WICKR, Only Co. W/ Integrity in the USA.
You have the right to privacy.
Protection from warrantless search and seizures.
The right to an attorney.
You have the right to due process. Protection from being held without charge, without public trial & without a speedy trial.
Those days are gone.
Today 95% of American companies willingly give the government what they want, or built a "backdoor" for the government to use as they see fit.
Those same backdoors are used by hackers.
The NSA lost all the top secret data about its domestic spying. Who would think their personal info will never walk out the door either?
Any company not using AT LEAST Wickr's standards for everything online, all the time. Doesn't care about you, your safety, or your rights. Making money & friends/deals with the government is their main focus.
I wish more CEO's had the integrity & balls as Wickr's CEO does.
They recently got a 30 million investment. I hope they use it to expand into cell phones, computers, banking, & (why not) law enforcement. The only company in america w/ integrity.
I'm a wickr supporter for
Best app ever.
