Wickr has a patent pending on technology which Sell said could give people ways to safeguard anything they send or put online, even digital bytes in Internet telephone calls or posts to leading social network Facebook.
“We expect to have it all covered by the end of the year,” Sell said. “The idea is you would use Wickr to interact with all the other networks.”
Wickr will evolve to be able to hide pictures posted at Facebook behind “decoy images,” with permission needed to look behind the masks, according to company co-founder Robert Statica.
“There will be a decoy image that the public sees, and you clear your friends or your group to see the real image,” explained Statica, a professor of information technology at the New Jersey Institute of Technology.
