NY: People are using a new app to report sex assault anonymously

[nypost.com – 9/21/18]

In the wake of #MeToo, more than 1,000 people have downloaded an app aimed at rooting out repeat sex offenders by allowing victims and witnesses to report the crimes anonymously and join forces against the sickos.

Called JDoe, the free app launched on the Apple and Android app store in April. It works by prompting users to report when and where an incident took place, along with the name of the perpetrator and any details of the crime.

The information is then stored in an encrypted database. Users cannot see the names of other victims or of perpetrators, but the app’s algorithm scans for patterns. If a repeat offender turns up, accusers receive separate notifications along with information on pursuing joint legal action through JDoe’s network of attorneys, if they desire.

There’s no need to wait for other victims to surface, however. JDoe also provides a way for users to anonymously report individual incidents to police or legal services providers.

In either scenario, the accused are not notified through the app that they have been reported.

  1. NY won't let go

    I see this as a weapon to be used towards registrants who haven’t had a crime. All someone has to do is type in the persons name and make something up? Hmm. Maybe it could also be used against politicians ie Mr Smith because he fked us in the a$$ without a courtesy of a reach around.

    This has repeated false accusations written all over it. I think everyone here should download the app and make a false claim against a fictional person to see if they bother to try to weed out false claims (extremely unlikely).

    Also interesting – I asked about false claims on their site and they won’t respond. Customer comments in the app store are interesting as well.

    “JDoe also provides a way for users to anonymously report individual incidents to police or legal services providers.”

    “In addition, Soscia plans to grow the app’s survivor-support services such as referrals for mental health care providers.”

    It looks like this app is trying to sell its product to providers.

    Kind of a dangerous tool in the hands of crazies. Enter names, see if stuff comes up. Enter names of people you do not like. Use as a date checker. Use to f*** with Chris Smith. use as a weapon in divorce. A weapon against a registrant living next door devaluing your property.

    We should all download the App and report Mark Zuckerberg and Tim Cook
