Ideal spot for tough chat
One of the best places to get real with each other. Don’t need to worry about privacy. I can talk about things that others might want to keep to themselves. Especially these days when nobody’s wants to be vulnerable to pandemic. My negative thoughts just disappeared after chatting with my anonymous friends.
I also got a text with a link to the app because a ‘friend’ was inviting me. The wording made it sound like someone I knew wanted to chat with me directly but anonymously. So I downloaded the app. During setup I went (admittedly, too quickly) through the privacy settings and accidentally agreed to every pop up. The app had full access to my contacts, but again, the way it was worded it seemed like it invited all my contacts to join via text message. I almost had a heart attack. I checked with my mom and she never got a text invite. So thank god! Since it’s all anonymous, it doesn’t really matter whether or not the people I’m talking to are my friends. So the whole connecting with your contacts thing is totally spam. And I know someone from the company will say “sorry you had a bad experience, it’s not spam blah blah blah” but like, there’s literally no benefit to chatting anonymously with friends. It’s nonsensical.
TLDR: anonymous chats are cool, but the anonymity makes the whole shared-contacts thing really sketchy. The only purpose it serves is to get the company more downloads.
Developer Response ,
Thank you for the feedback, we are of course disappointed you haven't had a positive experience using Open, but your feedback is really helpful.
Open is a place to chat anonymously within your shared contacts and we are working hard to make this, and its benefits, more clear when you first use the app - including that no friend invites are sent without your instruction.
If you would like any more information about your account, or if you feel you'd like us to remove your account, then send us a message from the 'Contact Us' option in the app, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
A Safe and Comfortable Place
Much like my favorite recliner at my parent’s home, this app is such a comfortable and safe place to open up. I have gained so much support from anonymous friends while dealing with Covid, work, child care, etc. not to mention the open discussions about politics and world events to help me gain a broader perspective. Try Open, you will love it!
