Wickr – It Can Keep Secrets Better Than Your Friends

Have you ever trusted someone so much that you were ready to tell them your deepest darkest secret? Have you been sure that they would take it to their grave? A lot of us have trust issues when it comes to sharing certain things with people and yet we feel the need to do so. It is only human to want to vent out to someone, be it something good or bad. There are not too many of us who can live without talking about certain things, ever.

Apart from that there are certain work related things as well that need to be communicated but confidentiality is of utmost importance. There are a lot of people trying to sabotage us at work, even if there aren’t any, one can never be too careful.
