Wickr wants to spread its spy-level encryption to your favorite games and apps

Caitlin McGarry | March 21, 2014
The encrypted messaging app is selling its security tools to other companies to make money—and to make your information safer.

"We've made all that key management happen in the background so the average consumer doesn't see it or realize it's happening," Sell explained. "We are the first to figure out how to do it so seamlessly, so I understand [Facebook's] position. That wasn't always the case. It drove me crazy long enough that I decided to fix it. If a 4-year-old can use it, anyone can."

That argument might not be convincing enough for Facebook, but you might see end-to-end encryption spread to your other favorite apps if Wickr has its say.
