No Reason At All not to be 5 *’s

Here’s the only few flaws.

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 the app “Signal” 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.

Obviously signal wants your real phone number to use it which is dumb.

Wickr is an excellent app.

If they could please program it to expire where you left it the last time I would feel along with others who I’ve spoken to would all feel more secure about using “Wickr” to communicate.

Thank you guys for making such an App possible.
It is important even if not say breaking the law that people have their privacy.

Bring Back Secure Shred

I was initially excited to see the new revamped app hit the market, but then I discovered that the most useful feature—Secure Shred—had not only had its manual functionality removed, but also now only focused on erasing/sanitizing the data related to Wickr messaging. While it’s nice to think that’s running in the background, the app eventually times out and the screen lock comes on (which effectively shuts down the app) while waiting for the background shred to work. Manual controls allowed not only the ability to monitor progress of the operation, but also allowed users to see the before and after effects the shred had on available storage.

Please bring back the manual controls and the functionality that allows you to permanently overwrite/erase/shred deleted files (other than those are tied to Wickr specifically)! Wickr held a perfect spot in the App Store for this use case, and now it’s hard to find a suitable (and trusted) replacement.

Perfect except password recovery

I love having a channel totally disconnected to the rest of my online identity, but perhaps consider at least having some sort of security question option. Got locked out of my account because fingerprint unlock unexpectedly turned off and had forgotten my password after never having had to type it in for months, which effectively lost me many important contacts.

The screenshot alert feature is gold - even better (if possible) would be option to manually disable screenshots within each chat so you also don’t have to deal with scolding people and trusting them to actually delete them!
