Wickr is a brand new iOS app that offers military-grade encryption for video, text, and picture messages on an iPhone. According to Nico Sell (App co-founder) Wickr is so easy to use that even her “3 year old son can use this app”.
This App allows you to set individual messages to auto destruct within a set period of time after the recipient opens them or they will be automatically will be deleted within 6 days and leaves no trace. Wickr use AES and RSA encryption methods to encrypt the messages to the point that even Wickr’s own servers never see an unencrypted version of the images, videos or text.
