We are aware of Australia’s pending legislature that would give law enforcement and security agencies the ability to request access to encrypted communication.
Wickr has been built to ensure that our servers store no user communications. Everything crossing our network is undecipherable in transit and deleted upon delivery. Our customers use Wickr Pro because of this commitment to Privacy by Design. They know that the data they send across our networks lives only on the device(s) from which it was sent and received. They understand and take comfort in the knowledge that Wickr never has access to their information. You can read more about our commitment to data privacy here: https://wickr.com/privacy/
We are also committed to being responsible and engaged in these policy debates and we are well versed in the nuances of building, selling, and supporting the World's Most Secure Communication platform. Wickr, Inc. will continue to work closely with law enforcement to ensure timely and responsive returns when data is validly requested. The data we provide is very limited as detailed in our legal process guidelines - https://wickr.com/privacy/#legalprocess. If you ever have questions about our processes for dealing with information requests this is the link for you!
Service providers who mine, store, and profit from data have a perfect record of exposing customer data. Wickr is different because we simply cannot expose customer data. This is a very simple promise we make to our customers, our partners and our industry. Our Customer Security Promises hold true for both Wickr Pro and Wickr Messenger. You can learn more about our commitment to privacy, security and transparency in both AWS Wickr and Wickr Me here -
