Why you should use Wickr?
In the modern world of information, you should twice care about the privacy and the safety of your personal data. That’s why you have to look at how to protect your data in messengers first.

Wickr, like all AWS products, can be used both for free and with a subscription. I prefer to use the Wickr Me app, it is free to download and use, has a nice design and takes not so much traffic. You can forget about proxy and VPN with that app (if you are not in China, of course) and have private talks about everything with everyone.
