We set a goal to build a truly secure and privacy-friendly messenger that combines a great set of features with a user experience everyone’s grown to expect from modern apps.
When we ask people why they chose Wire over alternatives, they usually give the following reasons:
Fantastic call quality. It’s not owned by Facebook. I don’t want to share my phone number. I love that it works on all my devices. European data protection. It’s beautiful!
It’s always a challenge to get your friends to switch to a new messenger, we know that first-hand. Recovering a part of your privacy from the likes of Facebook and Google is well worth the effort!
Wire seems like a reasonable alternative to Signal, it's just less well-studied. Also lets you register with anon email instead of a phone #— Edward Snowden (@Snowden) June 8, 2017
