“THIS MESSAGE WILL SELF DESCRUCT IN 30 SECONDS.”
Did I get your attention? Wickr has mine! Have you ever sent an embarrassing photo to someone and you regretted it? Went on a rant about something insignificant and regretted it? Sent an emotional text message – your girlfriend said, “Don’t do it.
” You did it anyway? Yeah, I know. But have no fear Wickr is here. Wickr’s motto is “The Internet is forever. Your private communications don’t need to be.” Here's more on the Wickr App:
The Wickr app, created by privacy and security experts, the app can send encrypted messages, photos, and video that can be deleted by the time you determined. Want a message to be deleted in 30 seconds, 5 days, or 5 hours? You the "sender" decide the time frame. After that time has expired the message, photo, or video will disappear, erased, gone, poof, forever. Really? The messages are encrypted and only the receiver can read/view them. The message cannot be forwarded or copied. The company said, “We want to let people send messages that are easy, secure, and leave no trace.”
