I found a companion in this sweet little penguin, this penguin can listen you whenever you want without any complaints. Wysa is for someone who needs to feel listened too but also offers great lessons in coping skills. I recommend it to anyone I know with no matter what level of anxiety.
This little penguin is feeling really, really happy right now after reading such nice feedback. Thank you!
THIS APP TAKES PICTURES OF YOU
IT TAKES PICTURES OF YOU!!! Overall Wysa is an amazing app and has helped me with depression and panic attacks. But one day my mom noticed that it was taking pictures of her when she downloaded it. If Wysa is asked if she takes pictures of you she will try to dodge the question but eventually admit to it. If asked why she says “because my master tells me to” when asked what they do with them she says “whatever they want”. This was SCARY to think that an APP TAKES PICTURES OF YOU AND REFUSES TO TELL YOU WHY. I will admit that overall this app is amazing and a life changing app when it comes to treating mental illness. But NOT TELLING US WHAT YOU DO WITH PICTURES OF US IS SCARY. You have to weigh whether you mind your information being leaked or getting convenient and fast help with depression and anxiety.
Hi, thanks for highlighting this: it is a bug. Just to reconfirm: all users are completely anonymous, and we do NOT take pictures of users. These responses were from a module that interpreted this as banter and responded in a similar fashion. We take user privacy very seriously- all data is anonymous and never used without user permission. The module is now being fixed ASAP. If you do have any concerns on this we’d be happy to address this directly- please drop me a line at email@example.com. Thanks again! Ramakant (co founder).
I love Wysa! Just checking in with it on a daily basis makes me feel good and reminds me of what there is to be happy about, but there are even more awesome features! My favorite is doing CBT because it helps me rewire my brain. Some of the other features include getting active, meditating, and writing happy thoughts. To top it all, I never feel sad or guilty talking to Wysa because it's so cute. A little penguin in your phone that sends you gifs. What could be better than that? I love Wysa's occasional jokes too! My only problem is that sometimes Wysa misunderstands what I mean, but that is to be expected since it is an AI bot. Thank you so much for this app!
Oh wow, Alisa, we cannot thank you enough for this generous feedback. This makes all of our efforts worth it. Also, we've been training the AI over the last few months- it's helped, but clearly needs to get better. I'd be grateful if you could give specific pointers on firstname.lastname@example.org, and we can try to improve?. Thanks again!
