Rewind your messages, media, and mistakes with the only messenger that protects your content from ex's, Apples, Googles, and Governments. We are regret-proof and the ultimate encrypted app for sexting (safe texting).
Ah yes, yet another messaging app to clutter your app drawer, right? Yes, exactly.
We can't really claim anything technologically brilliant above the Signals and Sessions of the world... none of us have computer science degrees, none of us went to top 10 colleges, none of us got anything but participation awards in life, and our lead developer lives by himself with his two rabbits. So why us? Because we are a small group of enthusiasts unburdened by the lameness of grown-up companies: we don't need revenue so we don't need to mine your metadata, we develop user-requested features quickly, and our userbase is small so we are not on anyone's radar, making it difficult for bad guys to hack let alone target your data. So without further ado, here is makes LiteWire better than the rest:
★ End-to-end-encrypted of course

★ Anonymous sign up, no email or phone number required. This alone wipes the rest of the competition off the grid.

★ Delete anything from both sides with no notification to recipient.

★ Custom watermarks for private content to deter leaking, on top of screenshotting protections

★ One-click off-the-record messaging that will disappear once the app is restarted

★ Distress beacon to let people hear and know where you are. We hope you never use this.

★ Most importantly, because most people don't care about security: we are beautiful. Customizable colors on a simple interface. You use your messaging app every day, so you might as well use one that feels nice.

Cyber security and real world security
Anonymous signup: all you need is a username you make up. Forget every other app that needs phone numbers! To find buddies, you can either enter their username or add a channel that you both share in common.

★ Messages are end to end encrypted so no one but you and your buddies can see your communications.

★ Database is also encrypted at rest and only your biometrics can unlock it. If someone takes your phone, they won't be able to read anything. Encrypted backups too so you can port your stuff to a new phone.

★ Launch a distress beacon to your close buddies, who will then receive your location and microphone recordings of your surroundings until you mark yourself safe by turning off the beacon.

Content Protection
Delete any message, including media content, from all recipients. And none of that "This message was deleted" BS you see in other apps.

Privacy watermarks let you add user-specific watermarks that shows up on your private content to deter a recipient from nonconsensually sharing your stuff. These photos and videos are also uniquely encrypted on recipient devices and can only be viewed in LiteWire.

Screenshot accountability for anyone who screenshots, which causes them to lose content they screenshot and the 50 messages before and after it. You will be alerted as well.

Off-the-record messages are only in memory and will disappear after app is restarted. One simple tap to engage this for whenever the convo gets juicy.

Find things easily
Search by subject: After even one day, most people's messages just get lost in the chat history forever. LiteWire lets you tag any message with a subject, which you can then find by clicking the star icon in the search bar. This is the marriage of chat and email.

Search by date: Not sure what you said, but you know roughly when the conversation happened? Search your messages by time in the format of mm/dd/yy. If you only know the month, just type mm/

The most fun you can have in a life-saving app
Stories, which are e2ee and disappear after 24 hours.

★ What's better than Wordle? Wordle with friends where you choose the word and see all their stupid guesses! Simply click the paperclip button and hit Play.

Canvas feature for doodling and editing other people's doodles to troll and peeve your friends.

★ A simple notepad in each chat allows everyone to view and add to a shared notepad in an easy-to-reach place.

★ Customize your experience with font styling:
   - Make text *bold*
   - Underline it with _italics_
   - Cross things out with ~strike-thru~
   - Color your text using PURPLEa color namePURPLE)

Free. A handful of other apps have some of our good features, but charge you to play. No one wants to have to convince all their friends to buy a service just to talk to them. What is this, AOL from 1995?

LiteWire Webcam:
★ Go to https://litewire.app/web.html on any device you want to turn into a security/pet/webcam and click Petcam Mode before logging in. Use a unique username, because this is how you'll find your petcam from another device!

★ Call your petcam user and enter video call to see your stream.

End to end encrypted viewing and sending of your webcam's stream. Forget the stresses of dealing with a provider that stores all your content on their own servers unencrypted, and charges you!

★ Receive webcam images from motion detection whenever something moves. Send the messages "[Motion Detect On]" and "[Motion Detect Off]" to toggle motion detection when you're away from the webcam.

LiteUp File Transfer:
★ Miss Firefox Send? Well go to https://litewire.app/lu/ and enjoy encrypted file transfer once again!

★ Enter in a password that will protect your files with end to end encrypted

★ Set a download limit for how many times your files can be downloaded.

Delete your files whenever you are finished transferring them by going to your LU link.

Local list of the file links you've sent for easy management.

★ Completely private and anonymous.
The most important and least interesting topic, security:

We designed this platform for the average Joe with a healthy amount of paranoia, so we aren't going to guarantee anything if you're a dissident in a totalitarian country contemplating betting your life on a messaging app. But the truth is, no one can. Our app is good enough for the everyday peon like ourselves. It is fully end-to-end encrypted and for someone to try to snoop on your conversations would take a prohibitively large amount of resources and money.

That being said, here is a link to download our source code for iOS, which includes the three main modules where all the logic behind LiteWire encryption and message handling works. The password to the zip file is this app name (lower case) and current year (2024). LiteWire also includes an option to show network traffic in and out of the app, so you can see exactly what is being transferred and confirm that it is in fact end to end encrypted.

The following is a shortlist of security features of LiteWire:


Q: I'm getting "Encrypted content, press for options" messages. What is this garbage?
A: It is bug garbage. This happens because your app was unable to receive the decryption key. After messaging your buddy again and seeing a good text, you can long-press to request the undecryptable message be resent.

Q: I have a feature I want. Can you make it?
A: Yes. Email it to droidrage@litewire.app.
