Wickr comes packed with an insane amount of features and some really impressive security. They earned a perfect 5-star rating in the EFF's 2017 "Who Has Your Back?" report, and recently opened their crypto protocol for peer review. From their ephemeral product features to their underlying crypto, Wickr is clearly aimed at users and organizations with legitimate privacy needs.
Where Wickr really shines in their teams solution, Wickr Pro. Not only do they offer encrypted voice and video calling, Wickr now supports screen sharing- which, in a business setting- is incredibly useful. If you're looking for a secure messenger for your team or business, keep Wickr on your shortlist.

Wickr supports everything you'd expect in a modern messenger plus a few exclusive bonus goodies for teams.
Everything feels familiar and clearish, although there are flows and moments where it can be a little frustrating.
Wickr's in desperate need of a more polished redesign. The current UI doesn't do the product and crypto justice.
