To allow your friends to find you on Wickr Me without knowing your Wickr ID, you can associate your phone number— with your Wickr ID. When you use this feature, we disguise your contact information with multiple rounds of salted cryptographic hashing before storing on our servers. This way, you can let your friends search for you on Wickr without revealing your contact information to us. If you use ID Connect to associate your phone number with your Wickr ID, we use a third party service Twilio to deliver a confirmation SMS to you, but that party will not receive any information about you other than your phone number, and the SMS message itself will contain no information except a confirmation link.
This feature is optional, and you can always turn it off when you no longer want it active.
