Privet, the Other Atlanta-Based Anonymity Mobile Player Chooses a Different Path Anonymity for Good


Operating a couple floors below the former home of Atlanta-based Yik Yak at Atlanta Tech Village, lives Privet, a bootstrapped startup that also believes theres a business in anonymity, but not in the form of “seximity,” “bullimity” or any of the other uses that have become commonplace with other anonymity applications. Privet believes people, be it at home, in local communities or the workplace, tied to causes like preventing domestic violence, addiction and mental health awareness, or other purpose-driven groups, are desperately seeking a safe venue for socially responsible anonymity.  And you don’t have to ask its five founders – Chris Morocco, Titania Jordan, Dale McIntyre, Molly Walker and Anne Bobel – if there’s a place for their version of anonymity.  Just download the Privet app and witness its hyper-active community of beta Privet diehards.

“We didn’t get to this place of anonymity without a great deal of soul searching,” explains Chris Morocco, CEO and co-founder of Privet.  “And brands like Yik Yak, Whisper, Rumr and After School have taught us a great deal about social anonymity and the market desire for this feature.  However, our mission, vision and technology are very different. The Privet culture is based on the belief that when responsible people are real, open and honest they can help each other beyond what anyone can imagine.”
