Anonymous Social Platform Cloaq Launches

Cloaq is a new anonymous social app where users are encouraged to speak their minds. It's kind of like Twitter, only everyone's identities are kept unknown. The Cloaq team, who have refused to reveal their own identities, liken the app to “an online masquerade ball, minus the dancing.” With a virtual invisibility cloak to shield them, users can talk about things that matter to them without having to worry about what others will think.

No email, phone number, or any other personal details are required to sign up for Cloaq. You just have to create a password and you will be assigned a batch ID. IP addresses aren't recorded, but anonymity doesn't translate to complete freedom. There are still some basic rules that must be observed to keep the community civil; those who do not comply will be banned. Posts on Cloaq can be as short as a quick sentence or as long as full-length articles; there are no character limits.

Cloaq is compatible with iOS 7.0 or later. The app has been featured in Business Insider, TechCrunch, Silicon Angle, and Social Times.
