I don't agree that they should be merged. Even though they are now using the same encryption protocol, they are still separate instant messaging clients that target different user groups. Other apps use a common set of encryption protocols, but we are not considering merging any of those entries. For example Signal and WhatsApp both use the Signal Protocol for end-to-end encryption, and ChatSecure, Conversations, Adium, Gajim, Jitsi, Pidgin, etc. are all XMPP clients that support the OTR encryption protocol. I think we should continue to list Wickr Messenger and Wickr Professional as separate entries, as long as they are distributed as separate applications. --Dodi 8238 (talk) 08:57, 1 October 2017 (UTC)
Declined. In general, an instant messaging client or platform is not added to this table until there is a Wikipedia article about it (see WP:WTAF), and a Wikipedia article about an instant messaging client or platform can only be written if the subject has received enough coverage in independent, reliable sources to meet the criteria in WP:GNG and/or WP:NSOFTWARE. --Dodi 8238 (talk) 09:57, 17 October 2017 (UTC)
