Frequently Asked Questions

Privacy

Is BuzzIt Anonymous?

No. However, all users can post, chat and share without identifying themselves to the community.

What’s The Difference Between Privacy And Anonymity?

An anonymous system has no user accounts, making it difficult to manage content. On BuzzIt, all users have to create accounts, but we never share any of their identifying information with other users.

What Are The Benefits of Creating an Account?

Having users create accounts allows us to deliver a better experience, including features like:

  1. Giving you access to the same account on all of your connected devices
  2. Connecting you to live, location-based chats while you're moving
  3. Helping you express yourself by sharing links, photos and files
  4. Empowering the community to self-moderate

Can Other Users See Me Or My Location When I Log In?

Other users can only see your posts and comments; they cannot see you or your location.

How Do I Know My Identity Is Safe?

We protect your data using bcrypt and OAuth and secure servers. Please check out our Privacy Policy and Terms of Use for more information.
