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.
Wickr®’s mission is to provide secure communications that Leave No Trace®. People are being tracked online and their information is being sold in ways they do not understand by numerous governments and corporations throughout the world. Your private communications are worth money. Online communications should be untraceable by default.
Companies like Apple, Facebook and Google offer messaging that is archived, easily traceable, controlled by the recipient, shared with strangers and sold to marketers. Wickr® flips messaging on its head, giving control to the sender instead of the receiver (or servers in between).
Wickr® is the World Post Office™ and will become the most trusted communication system in the world by giving power to the people.
