House Democratic committee moves to encrypted messaging for internal communications

Following last year’s hack, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee has switched to encrypted messaging app Wickr for all internal communications, as reported by BuzzFeed.

Installed by the DCCC in June, Wickr provides end-to-end encryption for messaging, similar to WhatsApp and iMessage. The DCCC is the first party committee to use Wickr, although Republicans in the White House have adopted a similar app called Confide, according to a report earlier this year, raising records retention concerns.
