approximate location (network-based)
Allows the app to get your approximate location. This location is derived by location services using network location sources such as cell towers and Wi-Fi. These location services must be turned on and available to your device for the app to use them. Apps may use this to determine approximately where you are.

precise location (GPS and network-based)
Allows the app to get your precise location using the Global Positioning System (GPS) or network location sources such as cell towers and Wi-Fi. These location services must be turned on and available to your device for the app to use them. Apps may use this to determine where you are, and may consume additional battery power.

view network connections

pair with Bluetooth devices
Allows the app to view the configuration of the Bluetooth on the phone, and to make and accept connections with paired devices.

read your contacts
Allows the app to read data about your contacts stored on your phone, including the frequency with which you've called, emailed, or communicated in other ways with specific individuals.

    I'd give this app 5 stars but there are few things that bother me: 1. I can't see if the person I'm texting is online or not. I can't see anyone's status except mine. 2. The 'no screenshot' feature is only applicable to me. If I turn it on or off it doesn't affect the other. 3. Many times the notifications don't work. 4. If I could see whether the other person is typing, this app would've been the best. But overall this app is great. Calls are of good quality. I like this app.

  2. guest-avatar

    wickr me private messenger apk Do not download, it does not work. They have not made it so you can add contacts. Attempting to add them will only invite them to wickr, even if they are already on wickr. If you try to search wickr for a person's username, it looks in your phone's address book instead. On top of all that, they do not have a real customer support dept. That is just disrespectful, especially when they know their product is not functional.

  3. guest-avatar

    Great little app offering encrypted communications. Not the most "user friendly" but still easily navigated. I miss some of the functions that Signal has such as message delivery confirmation, video calling and over ease of use. Incorporate some of Signal's advances and you got yourself a great app!

  4. guest-avatar

    Even after update app still does not work, anytime I try to search a contact it says they are no longer on wickr even when I tried to message a friend who was sat next to me. I have uninstalled and reinstalled numerous times but problem still persists.

  5. guest-avatar

    Cannot send or receive messages, I just got many friends to finally switch and now they're really going to be hesitant to use encrypted messaging. Hope this bug gets.workednout soon!!

    Michael Hillis-Mowery


    Failed before I even got to use it. Couldn't even get registered to join. The sign up screen would never enable the create account button, and there are no instructions to help identify what was wrong and why it wouldn't allow me to register; so, I just gave up, because if the sign up process is that messed up, imagine how bad the rest of the app is.

  7. guest-avatar

    Please put it back how it used to be, I hate the rooms / direct messages options. Just group them together like it always was and save us unnecessary screen clicks!!!

  8. guest-avatar

    Update: still the same. New update has screwed it for me. A good 4/5 times I go to check it throughout the day, it won't open. I click the app, loads for barely 2 seconds, closes, repeat for some random amount of times and I may just get in. Half the time if I do manage to get in, I click on a conversation and it closes again, starting my issue again.

  9. guest-avatar

    Pretty good but really needs a dark theme and a way to adjust the message or font size to make messages easier to read

  10. guest-avatar

    Always been great until the last week. Now it disconnects by itself and I have to click Retry to get it going again. Am missing important messages. App crashes and reboots every time I try to take a photo. Also on android.

  11. guest-avatar

    According to documentation you cannot verify our have your account or be verified because no email account is associated. I created a room typed and entered a video bit could not view it when I went back to the room. You cannot select our offer wickr users that you don't know to a room

  12. guest-avatar

    Update: Bug Still Persists. They would rather save a bit of money than fix it. Use alternative Update. : Epic. BUG still persists. Be warned about using this app for ANYTHING confidential. There are exploits they are unaware of. AWFUL. You say you're secure but theres one very embarrassing bug that exploits your app and leaves egg on your faces. Our local paper written an awesome article about it. Please reply to my email and ill forward you correspondence. 3 updates later.. bug still persists.

  13. guest-avatar

    Unloadable, tried many times and no indication given by the app what needs addressing. POS

  14. guest-avatar

    Works perfectly well with a lot of privacy features... Can only recommend it

  15. guest-avatar

    I sometimes get notified when someone has rang or messaged but majority of the time never get notifications

  16. guest-avatar

    The new update is so much faster with biometric unlock. The app is great and seems secure. The only issue with the new update is that the return key now functions as the send key. Please update so that the return key actually creates a new line in the message, like it used to.

  17. guest-avatar

    Bright GUI & Limited Functionality! Perhaps it's a free account thing? I hate the only way I can contact is via My Contacts! 1st time setup req. phone #!?! Y, IDK. Using email or UID is better! Fingerprint Broken? Asks me y/n then asks 4 pwd instead! No pwd verification!?! I got Locked/Reset due 2 this! Scary your device will reset! No background, theme or color in general. App Won't b used @ night! I can't imagine pay 4 upgrade! Better off keepin Signal Messenger! *N975USQS2ASJ8*

  18. guest-avatar

    Was 5 stars now 2 coz on my Android Galaxy s7 , it crashes EVERY TIME, I open the app instantly crashes. Uninstall it & reinstalling it fixes the problem, ONLY for the day, next day after reinstalling and it keeps crashing again!! Really angry about this as it's screwing my communications

  19. guest-avatar

    cevapke anahtarıke


    Works perfectly for Redmi Note 7. Please do not give 1 star because it crashes down on your phone from Jesus' birth. Update your phone, don't attack the developers.

  20. guest-avatar

    Improvement needs on voice calling feature + provide reply back option for previous sent messages... Rest all is Good ♥️

  21. guest-avatar

    Cant sign in since update, app wont load the keyboard (I am not using a keyboard app)

  22. guest-avatar

    constant problems with this app when the stupid ass developer updates. something new always broken. like now, there is issues sending photos. piss poor app coded by retards. heres an idea. roll it back to last years build that actually worked.

  23. guest-avatar

    Im talking with some friends in brazil and they CAN print screen The conversation normally!!! Ive checked the settings its all blocked, but they still can take print screen. I can't do thw print, but thay can do normally.

  24. guest-avatar

    Latest update ruined the easy to use UI. Why remove the separators between messages? When placing a call, the ringing tone plays through the loudspeaker instead of the ear piece.

  25. guest-avatar

    This app is good, but it needs something that shows a person is in the process of replying to a message. The app also needs a dark mode.

  26. guest-avatar

    Very best communicate app along with speedy response by customer service. One of the best secured & encrypted app. I recommend to normal User & organisations, companies as well.

  27. guest-avatar

    Jamie Inferrers


    1rst they don't delete themselves after opening and being read , and the receiver can't get it to work. 0 stars

  28. guest-avatar

    Note 10+ | Constant, no-ending crashes. Very frequent disconnects missing messages, other than that, works as it should

  29. guest-avatar

    Argha Bhattacharya


    Please upgrade the UI for God sake. It's 2020. I can't even change font size. Remove the phone number requirement if you truly believe in "zero trust policy".

  30. guest-avatar

    No longer working. Unable to login as app crashes. Please fix. Thanks

  31. guest-avatar



    otherwise really like the app, but suddenly when I try to sign in it keeps crashing every time. Please fix it!

  32. guest-avatar

    It has some lag in the notifications but otherwise has been a great way of communicating with coworkers

  33. guest-avatar

    Weird stuff after the last update app crashed on opening but reinstalling it seems it works fine again.

  34. guest-avatar

    Worked fine up until recent update. The app crashes on my android everytime I attempt to open it.

  35. guest-avatar

    Ruined it with the new update. Enter is now send... You cannot write on different lines now! Useless!

  36. guest-avatar

    Crashes daily, cant access messages half the time and never gets updated to fix it

  37. guest-avatar

    Dude Wickr is totally bank, I use it for all of my sensitive communication, if you know what I mean ;) . Easy to use and totally secure.

  38. guest-avatar

    Mariusz Krystel


    Best private messenger ever! I can definitely recommend it tho all my friends. Most important -it's SAFE

  39. guest-avatar

    Gracie Rhiann Hamilton


    Crashes on startup every time. App is not useable.

  40. guest-avatar

    Good but you cant remove someone from a group chat? What's up with that?

  41. guest-avatar

    Always Need password, and call not connected to same time...

  42. guest-avatar

    Tried to sign up and it said my account has been restricted? 😳 After clicking sign up? BS

  43. guest-avatar

    Great app... Maybe try to make it for laptops as well

  44. guest-avatar

    Many problems on Galaxy J5. I can't add someone by name, only 1 contact got discovered automatically and when I tap on a phone book contact that already has wickr the invite menu shows up, even which instead of automatically adding me to their contacts prompts them to download the app again. Once it almost worked but it said that the user had been removed(he hadn't) and when he found me it said that I have been removed(i'm pretty sure I haven't either) 3.5/5 in general...0/5 for no add-invites

  45. guest-avatar

    Great app, the app is good for keeping yourself private and all. sensitive information is encrypted on both ends so your privacy is the key... they have options on how long you want your message to stay on their device 30 seconds to 6 days. You control everything on wickr and you dont have to worry bout ppl snoopin on your conversation. A+++ My favorite messaging network

  46. guest-avatar

    Ive tried so hard to like this app. Its too buggy its hit and miss, reception for calls really bad. Doesnt seem to like working with my VPN. Everyone who ive told to install this app have now deleted it. People stick with the main apps like Whatsapp because they just works. I want to use Wickr i need it to work. Im using a Blackberry Android Motion its meant to be a secure phone and i want a secure app like wickr.

  47. guest-avatar

    Won't let me use enter button to start new line just sends message

  48. guest-avatar

    Absolutely the best app for private internet gaming.

  49. guest-avatar

    Can't save pictures anymore. It worked before the update, but now when I try to save a picture if gives an error "Unfortunatly, Documents has stopped". Or it tries to save the picture twice, but if isn't saved correctly and it shows a blank image. Could you fix this, please?

  50. guest-avatar

    From what I've experienced with this app, I feel that this is the best app available for end to end encrypted communications. I used to use Signal (Sorry Wickr, I'm not trying to promote a possible competitor) but due to an increased need for security, I turned to Wickr and it is by far, superior to all other apps I have previously used. I love the fact that is free and ad free. That is extremely hard to find in free apps. You've created a smooth and user friendly app and highly effective.

  51. guest-avatar

    I am attempting to create an account and i enter my info, tap create button and nothing happens

  52. guest-avatar

    The messages feature works well and I am happy it doesn't link to my phone number. However, the call feature does not work. When I call another contact on Wickr. The phone just keep ringing on my end. Even if the other person taps to answer the call, the phone stays stuck at connecting and than it says that the other person is unavailable on my end. Please fix the call feature.

  53. guest-avatar

    Sharing files and sending audio is hit and miss.. Sharing files from my end only worked the 1st time or a couple of times then just stopped.. After that the ability to send voice is intermittent. After 3 reinstalls the result was the same. Support wanted all functionalities set to 'on' while they were not necessary 1st off. Also the setting "to prevent sensorship". On a 'encrypted and secure app' ?!? 'Go figure' Support was unable to sort it out. And stopped communication.

  54. guest-avatar

    This was ok i guess at one time. But i updated it because i was having trouble with msgs not getting thru and now cannot find any way to add someone just w username (and not accessing my phone contacts). Like... such a simple thing. Removed. And where is the dark mode? Theres no setting or choice anymore. A privacy app that doesnt let you add a comtact just by username is garbage.

  55. guest-avatar

    Latest update app force closes every time I open it

  56. guest-avatar

    Useless. I downloaded the app to make new friends and I can't even message a single person until I somehow get a friend to download the app and message me. This is made exponentially more difficult because I can't search for their username. As far as through the app and the information I am able to receive online I can find no way out of this. The app is totally unusable unless you market for them and get a friend to join the app.

  57. guest-avatar

    Horribly un intuitive, no real account settings, can't change email, no real congruency with app and pc version. EDIT I found the pc version, but still find the app cumbersome and don't understand why messages have elipses at the bottom and take up so much of the screen. Over all there are better chat apps out there.

  58. guest-avatar

    Great for keeping your conversations between you and only the person you are sending them to. Screenshots are disabled which is a feature I've really come to appreciate

  59. guest-avatar

    A good attempt at secure communication with verification and privacy features. Current file size limit for media is around 10MB. An issue I encountered is users can only access their encrypted messages when connected to Wickr servers. If I'm offline then I cannot access the chat messages.

  60. guest-avatar

    Keeps crashing on Samsung 9 plus

  61. guest-avatar

    It is wonderful, and I love the security, however I do have one big problem with it. It would be much better if I was told when the other person was typing, because it tends to make conversation kind of clunky and awkward when you don't know.

  62. guest-avatar

    This is the one!!! I trust this app to do what it says it will and it has kept me from doing time which is a big thumbs up!!!

  63. guest-avatar

    Have to constantly close and reopen the app. If it is already open, the message screen displays "reconnecting". Any messages are unsent and will not resend until the app is closed and reopened. Gets to be an extreme pain.

  64. guest-avatar

    Wickr has absolutely failed to deal with Ethiopian firewalls. The whole censorship avoidance claim is a farce. Can't use it for my investigative journalism or file transfer (as small as 32kb picture won't send). Poor work Wickr, false claims. Zero stars from me.

  65. guest-avatar

    Love this app but now return is send which so dumb, put it back to return n il up this to 5 ⭐

  66. guest-avatar

    Very good app for private messages, you can choose the time when it gets deleted after read good app

  67. guest-avatar

    Great app. Safe fast .

  68. guest-avatar

    In australia nothing is 100%private now. By law. An act of parliament decrees that the govt shall have access to any nd all enccrypted messages and mail or any communications. So either the program has backdoor for spying o your phone software does. Either way you lose.All of us.Everyone. Abunch of scarcely equiped with life experience white older men ake wide reahing longterm knee jerk decisions about everyones lived experiences.like it or not. Yeah ok though npt 100 secure

  69. guest-avatar

    this app is mediocre, pictures do not download, there's no shred button anymore (which indicates that it's NOT as secure as before). I mean when they get a CEO, their priorities have obviously changed.

  70. guest-avatar

    Mark Andrew Griggs


    Decent app but it vibrates a hundred times at random when I get ONE message. Maybe just one quick buzz for one message? Not a thousand buzzes. Jesus that's annoying.

  71. guest-avatar

    Used to work on Android pixel3, then suddenly it just won't anymore. Updated the app a few times, still either won't load, or hangs immediately after login. Been useless for months.

  72. guest-avatar

    Loved this app, it's absolutely the most secured texting app on playstore.. I would ask the Devs to add dark mode for night.. I love all the features it's an amazing app.

    The 'create' button doesn't work. I tried to create an account too many times unsuccessfully

  78. guest-avatar

    This app works so smoothly... All its features behave in optimal parameters and i just love it. Multumesc!

  79. guest-avatar

    Iv made four accounts and it just will not let me back in iv lost contact with around six people because of this. How the he'll do u search people it so hard to actually find someone and it didn't ever ever let you invite anyone to wickr thru the invite to wickr tab . I'm so annoyed if lost such a good contact.

  80. guest-avatar

    2 hours later, following instructions and Youtube clip and still not able to add a first contact!!! App deleted.

  81. guest-avatar

    This is a very good app you can call people with out a number I would say it is a very good app in my eyes

    Private simple and email based one of the best messaging apps I've used

  83. guest-avatar

    It wont let me create account at all. I do everything they ask and they give me a check mark on everything saying I did it all right.

    Apnot not working says network errors.. The application does not start after downloading

  85. guest-avatar

    Since the update I cannot see received messages but receiver sees my messages. I did reinstall but I cannot see messages sent to me. Can you guys help?

  86. guest-avatar

    Search for a valid username and you won't find it. Do it on either side and it won't work.

    This app is so secure, after registering an account it was immediately suspended...

  88. guest-avatar

    I like the idea and it got the best security, but I can't send images over this app

  89. guest-avatar

    not user friendly and can't find or start new conversations with non contacts, its a joke wont recommend

  90. guest-avatar

    I cant type on the sign in page

  91. guest-avatar

    buggy to the point of almost being unuseable

  92. guest-avatar

    Great app for privacy and secure conversations!

  93. guest-avatar

    If it's so private why does it need so much device access? Had to uninstall.

  94. guest-avatar

    Can't even make an account when it was updated.

  95. guest-avatar

    For some reason it won't let me make an account...

  96. guest-avatar

    All good just need to bring Dark mode folks for Eye protection!

  97. guest-avatar

    Photos take time to send

  98. guest-avatar

    Sometimes you dont even get notification att all, wortless app

  99. guest-avatar

    Best app in the term of privacy and secure messaging . I have already used lot of app but this is the best i have ever used. But if u add one more option like whstapp blue tick for confirming that the message have been read or not on other hand before the sms expire and burn on both side.add this type of option in next update. That will make it more useful. Thank you so much for providing us such a very useful think like wickr me app. I hope you consider my option.
