Straight out of a dystopian hell hole. Forget the fact that the name is evocative of a perv in a granny suit, looking under the doors of public toilet stalls, to see knickers around people’s ankles. This is far more sinister.
For some, the narcissistic-type social media of reporting when you’re changing your socks wasn’t enough.Your credit rating just wasn’t enough either; things had to get personal.
Welcome to the wonderful world of “Peeple”, an app where your integrity can be rated by just anybody to be publicly displayed, (initially, without your consent), showing your trustworthiness to whoever might want to “check your character”. Welcome to the world of just anybody being able to set up a public profile in your name, using validating information such as an old phone number, without you being able to remove your information afterwards (as they will own it all).
This analysis details how the so-called safety measures are laughable and anyone could end up being denigrated by those they bother in the most minute of ways. Access to the information on the app is fragmented (including access to the reviews others post about you).
It’s basically like being on trial without having committed a crime – only not going before the jury once, but perpetually, and seeing the case for or against you being made as time passes.
Imagine the gold mine this would be for virtue-signaling SJWs and vengeance-crazed “survivors” who think presumed psychopaths (identified by them) should be outed somewhere on the internet.
Thankfully, from the reviews I’ve seen so far, not everyone is high on psychotropics these days. The public reaction is dismal, as it should be, and the creators of this app are busy dodging rotten fruit on social media; aside from a few suspicious five star reviews, the majority are one star, or, as some like to put it, no star at all.
Although they have made changes following the tsunami of negative reviews, people continue to hate it because of the mere concept and risks.
