Users flock to Questi, An anonymous app built to Maintain Privacy
The highly rated app was started by UC Davis Freshmen to help address shyness and foster more authentic interaction.

San Francisco, California – February 8, 2021 Questi, a social media app that maintains useranonymity and privacy, announced today that their user base has been growing throughout recent pandemic-related shutdowns and social distancing. The question-and-answer based app was built by UC Davis Freshmen Abhiman Reddy whose mission was to encourage social interaction while eliminating awkwardness and gaining authenticity.

“Questi is a fun and different way to interact.” Said Reddy, “Unlike other platforms with a Q and A format like Yik Yak and Whisper, you don’t post about yourself upfront. Instead, the app is based around you interacting by answering questions that other people ask you or posting questions for other people to answer about themselves.”

Questi’s unique format is thought promote a more authentic interaction than other social media platforms because of its ability to maintain user privacy throughout the experience.

“Social media apps tend to have a very high vanity factor, where people post look-at-me type content and amass huge followings that make people seem unapproachable.” Commented Reddy, “But with Questi, the person asking the question is interacting without any superficial factors like photos, videos or filters. When they ask a question, they remain anonymous forever. We create the space to really get to know someone on a personal level and remove all the barriers that make meeting new people awkward.”

Tackling Cyberbullying

To prevent cyberbullying and circumvent trolls, Questi employs Artificial Intelligence that blocks rude or inappropriate questions or comments. With AI in place, the app can detect and weed out behaviour that is against Questi’s terms of use. “For instance, a user asking something like ‘why are you fat’ would get a prompt saying, ‘don’t be rude’ and the question would not be delivered. This keeps our community safe and our users protected from abuse.” Said Reddy.

Questi, rated 4.9 out of 5 stars, is available for download on Google Play on Android and the App store on iOS. Users like @Berndcooman rave that it is an “Amazing app to connect and get a bigger perspective on how people think and what they want from life.”

For a completely new take on getting to know people, download Questi and start asking questions today.
