The messaging app was founded in San Francisco. The five founders are: Nico Sell, Robert Statica, Chris Howell, Kara Coppa and an unknown fifth person.
Under Nico’s management, the technology used by Wickr caught the attention of many journalists, politicians, public figures and so on. After Snapchat user data got leaked in 2014, Wickr sheltered the disappointed user base.
With Wickr you can send encrypted self-destructing messages, as well as photos and videos. The messages and phone numbers aren’t kept on Wickr servers, making it impossible to satisfy any government inquiries into user data.
