Wickr Product Update (version 5.59)

We are constantly working to improve the user experience, making enhancements that will increase usability, security, and information sharing — whether you use AWS Wickr or Wickr Me. 

We are excited to announce that we’ve made some improvements under the hood for messaging. These improvements allow users to communicate with up to 500 people in a room without a significant slow down due to message encryption.


  • [Mobile] Introducing “Audio Only” calling, for use in low bandwidth situations. This will prevent other callers’ video and screen share from streaming to your device, improving call performance in low bandwidth situations. You can find this toggle under Settings > Connectivity.
  • [Mac] Fixed an issue where notifications would not play an audible sound when turned on in macOS settings. 
  • [Desktop] The app now displays a banner at the top of the screen when a new update is available. 

Thanks for using AWS Wickr and Wickr Me. Know that here at Wickr, we are dedicated to being the best-in-class secure collaboration platform, and we hope that these updates improve your experience.

If you have any other suggestions, please feel free to contact support@wickr.com.
