This is Wickr's first public U.S. law enforcement contract. All of the company's other public contracts are with the Air Force/Army vice.com/en/article/m7ammn/c…

Wickr offers disappearing messages as part of its security features. Those disappearing messages can complicate government requirements to preserve text messages (variables on whether it is enabled and/or logged elsewhere) vice.com/en/article/m7ammn/c…

It would be interesting what they are doing to enforce record keeping on such platforms to support FOIA What's the bet its nothing & future FOIA requests will come back "No information becuase we use E2EE messaging"
