A small and easy to use application that enables you to send messages and share pictures with your friends without having your privacy compromised
Wickr Pro is a small messaging application that makes it easy for you to send self-destructing encrypted messages or images from within a secure environment.
Applications with self-deleting messages are not something exotic this day and age, but what’s really admirable about Wickr Pro, is the fact that it takes the whole security issue to a whole new level.
Extreme measures of security within a user-friendly package that make it more comfortable and secure to stay in touch with your friends and family
The device info is cryptographically hashed with a SHA256 secure hash algorithm, the sent data is encrypted via a AES256 cipher, while messages are deleted after the selected period of time expires.
As if this wasn’t enough, both data from the sender and from the receiver is locally encrypted on each device, all keys are unique randomly generated, so it is safe to say that when it comes to private messaging sessions Wickr Pro has this territory well covered.
It’s fair to say that security is the app’s focus point, but despite that, it manages to also provide you with a user-friendly and intuitive graphic interface. To get started, you must create a Wickr account which can be accomplished very quickly by simply choosing a nickname and a password, while no other personal data is required what so ever.
Benefit from the advantages of self-destructing messages and chat up to 10 friends in total security
Regarding the self-destroying messages, you can set the app to keep your received and sent messages anywhere from 3 seconds up to 6 days.
Furthermore, Wickr Pro enables you to send pictures you just took with your Mac’s iSight photos or from the hard-drive. Moreover, you can also share audio messages, send documents, and even record 30 seconds videos that can be sent instantly.
Another worth mentioning feature is the fact that the application can also handle group messaging with ease, and, thus, you can chat with up to 10 friends simultaneously. Note that, additionally, you can also deliver messages to non-Wicker users who will receive an invitation e-mail from you.
Comes with support for almost all major desktop and mobile device platforms
Last, but not least, Wickr Pro also offers support for multiple platforms such as OS X, Windows, Linux, iOS, and Android, so you will always have the option of effortlessly sending secret messages at the tips of your fingers.
Taking all things into consideration, Wickr Pro provides extreme but needed measures for protecting your private data and messages, without sacrificing functionality and user-friendliness, and we can only be happy that it offers one of the last pieces of pure freedom and security still available in this ever-changing place, the internet.
