Our goal is to stop, or at least slow, the spread of Sexually Transmitted Diseases and Infections (STDs/STIs). We believe communication is essential in fighting the epidemic. Informing someone they may have been exposed to an STI is a conversation that should be held in person. Although, sometimes having this tough and awkward conversation is not an option. Which is why we offer anonymous notifications and replies. We are a last resort.
Email or text message
You can send an anonymous message via email or text message (SMS) informing a partner they may have been exposed to an STI. Although it is optional, we strongly encourage you also select the time of exposure (e.g. "1 month ago"). This information can be really useful for the recipient to know when to get tested.
It's fast and easy
It takes less than a minute and is easier than creating a fake email account to mask your identity. We don't ask for any personally identifiable information and respect the right to remain anonymous. However, this should not be taken the wrong way and we ask that you please respect others and refrain from harassing and/or abusing people using our system.
Track when a message is received
We provide the option for you to create an account with us to be able to view a log of when sent messages were received. This is of course optional, and was only added after listening to feedback from users. You only need to provide an email if you want to be able to reset your password or receive a notification of when a message you sent was read. If you forget your password and didn't provide an email when signing up, then you can contact us for assistance.
Replying to a notification
When you sign up for an account before of after sending a notification, you are given the ability to see when the message is read and receive replies. The sender or the recipient may "unlock" the notification to enable replies. Replies are all completely anonymous because they are managed in-app.
This feature was added inline with our goal of improving communication and conversation about STIs.
We understand that abuse happens, despite our best intentions. If you feel that you are being harassed with messages, you can add yourself to our blacklist. This will prevent users from sending you any more emails or text messages from our site.
