To get you started the first time or after a device reset:
- Install the Wickr app from our website, iTunes, or the Google Play store.
- Open the app and hit the "Register" button
- Create a Wickr ID (anonymous username - see rules below)
- Create a password and enter it twice
USERNAME AND PASSWORD LIMITATIONS:
If you do not see a checkmark next to your username, the name is invalid. Please use 4-15 alphanumeric characters only (0-9 and a-z). To protect your identity, Wickr Me does not allow the "@" sign or white spaces (i.e., space/tab/newline) so that you cannot use your real name (John Hancock) or email address as your anonymous Wickr ID.
We do not do an automatic check on usernames as you type to prevent spammers who could easily create a large list of valid usernames this way. You will only know if the username is taken after you press "Submit."
If you are missing a checkmark next to the first password, your password is invalid. Try using a combination of upper- and lowercase letters, numbers, and special symbols, a minimum of 8 characters.
If you are missing a checkmark next to the second password, it does not match your first password. Please retype both to make sure they match.
Note: Your username and password for the Wickr Support website are not connected to your Wickr ID and password. The credentials used for this site will not work in the Wickr app.
IMPORTANT: Currently, there is a bug that causes some devices to report a generic error message instead of the "Username already in use" error. If you see an unusual server error when registering a new account, please try a more unique name (i.e., `wickruser1945` if `wickruser` gave you a user error).
