A clumsy app

ron1701

The concept is good, but its a clumsy buggy app. There is no way for an existing user to reset a lost password, LinkedIn verification doesn’t work and after a failed LinkedIn verification, it keeps repeating the error even when an alternate verification is tried. Also there doesn’t seem to be a companion web site that would allow one to access Blind from a computer.

For another app I might be willing to overlook these inconveniences, but Blind is asking us to put our trust in them to protect our anonymity. I cannot do so after seeing how immature this app is.

Not anonymous

Despite Blind's assertions that your work email address is disconnected from your Blind user identify, I've evidence to the contrary.

Blind replied to my review as follows:

""Our patented infrastructure is setup so that all user account/activity information is completely disconnected from your email authentication process. In other words, your work emails are hashed and locked away. Forever. This means there is no way to connect your activity on Blind back to your work domain, because even we can't do it."

No, clearly user account/activity is connected to the email address because after a temporary ban, attempting to get a new user ID produces the error that the user has been restricted.

Users and blind administrators are thin skinned and if you use Blind you risk being doxxed.

Our patented infrastructure is setup so that all user account/activity information is completely disconnected from your email authentication process. In other words, your work emails are hashed and locked away. Forever. This means there is no way to connect your activity on Blind back to your work domain, because even we can't do it.

I like the concept, but it’s not very well thought out. The app requires you to verify your identity with your work email or LinkedIn account which goes against the whole idea of being anonymous. I have a lot of dirt on my employer, but I’m not going to spill anything by risking my job. Requiring users to verify their identity is a really bad idea and will severely slow the growth of the apps community. Useless. Deleting this app from my phone.

Developer Response

At our core, Blind is an exclusive community of verified professionals. We are not an open platform for everyone. Work emails are the best way to quickly gauge the professional status of our potential users, which in turn will help foster more meaningful and trusted conversations between professionals grouped by job function, company, and industry. We use email verification as the integrity of our community is very important to us. Know that every single user on Blind has entered their work email to gain access to our app. Email verification is safe, as our infrastructure is setup so that all user account/activity information is completely disconnected from your email authentication process. This effectively means there is no way to trace back your activity on Blind to an email address, because even we can’t do it. his seems counter intuitive as users use their LinkedIn profile or work email to verify their employment on Blind, but our patented infrastructure ensures your work emails are hashed and locked away. Forever. Your user activity on Blind is stored in a completely separate server that does not connect to your hashed domain.
