Wickr’s mission is to provide a free and easy way for anyone to send encrypted messages without a trace. Both sender and receiver must have the app to communicate. Only the receiver is able to decrypt the message once it was sent, and Wickr does not have the decryption keys. Wickr has hundreds of thousands of downloads in over 113 countries. Celebrities, royalty, reporters, feds, lawyers, doctors, investors and teens are the early adopters.

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. 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. Wickr's patent-pending technology brings sophisticated security and privacy to everybody. Wickr’s protocol for ephemeral messaging and media uses standard encryption algorithms 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.
