Why Work Email?
Verification keeps Blind a safe and trusted community where professionals can connect. Your email address is ONLY used for verification. Our patented infrastructure (Patent no. 10-2013-******) makes sure that all user account and activity information is completely disconnected from the encrypted email verification process. This means that there’s no way to trace back your activity on Blind to an email address.
If you choose to sign up with a personal email (Gmail, Yahoo, edu, etc.) instead of a work email, you’ll get view-only access to public topics. To participate in more insightful conversations, you will need to verify with a work email.
To continue our focus on protecting the security of our users, we have restricted rooted or jailbroken devices from accessing Blind. Please remember to download the Blind app from the official App Store.

Great for unfiltered work convos
I love being able to talk anonymously about workplace and industry issues without fear of being fired of treated differently.
I gave 4 stars instead of 5 because the general forums are all for tech & engineer industry fields. I work in marketing and haven’t found and work-related threads that are relevant to me which is a disappointment. There is also a huge importance placed on TC and commenters will berate OPs for that info even if it’s not relevant which is a bit annoying and makes everyone sound like a douche.

Toxic Environment and Cyberbullying
I like the concept of the app in bringing together people from different workplaces to ask work-related questions but often times I saw many mean and unhelpful comments to questions that were simply seeking help. Unlike reddit and other chat communities, Blind doesn’t seem to have any enforced rules for trolling and harsh comments. I had this app for about 2 weeks and decided to delete it because I was sick of seeing people post harsh comments and supporting other harsh comments that simply amounts to cyberbullying.
Although, this was not always the case, it happened regularly to the point that I saw it in almost every other post.
I think having an app that connects people together for asking work related advice anonymously is nice. However, if you were to build a good and truly helpful community, I believe having enforceable rules to prevent cyberbullying and create a supportive environment is absolutely necessary for making the app experience better.

Thanks for your feedback! We provide every user with a set of community guidelines and these are meant to be referenced when participating on Blind. Like other social platforms, we have our share of negative content and we offer tools to report/block these. We highly encourage you to flag posts and comments that violate our guidelines. We also encourage you to block users that write content you don't wish to see. All of these users will eventually be reviewed for restrictions. If you have further feedback or suggestions, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org!
Good idea, but toxic culture with limited moderation
Similar to what a lot of others are reporting, think of this as an anonymous mob mentality culture app. It brings out the bad side of people who think cutting down other responses is a way of life. Trolls are in every post. For those that ask genuine salary or culture questions, there may be some good and sound advice, however not without filtering dozens of sarcastic or rude comments to get to helpful info.
App features have improved, which is cool to see - 4 stars in that area with some room to improve (I still get random error messages, etc). Points are interesting feature. DM could be good to reach people who have genuine Q&A.
However, I can’t give a high rating until the team figures out a better way to reduce/remove trolling and turn this back into a community that can openly discuss items in a more respectful way (even when disagreeing).
