Wickr Me is a free app for iPhone. With Wickr Me, you can instantly connect with your friends 1:1 or in groups – now with fully encrypted voice calling, voice memos – new additions to the trusted end-to-end secure sharing of files, images, and videos. Take full control over who has access to your content and how long it remains accessible.
“Apps such as signal allow the user to set an expiration timer in which is programmed per user for ever. EVEN AFTER HE USER DELETED THE MESSAGE THREAD. On Wickr unfortunately it will reset every time you delete a thread. That being said if you want the messages to expire within a certain time that you say happen to have left it as. The chances are if you deleted the thread you now will have a message that won’t expire for 5-6 days. Where as in a different app it will remember if you had a 1-3 hour expiration or a whole day. The thing about this is when you communicate on a large scale it’s nonsense to keep all the open threads. But when starting a new conversation with someone the following day it’s now once again on a 5 day expiration because you may forget to reset it. It is important even if not say breaking the law that people have their privacy.”
