A: No. Your identity is kept private. It is not tied to your message when your message is sent to other members. QUOKA is anonymous text messaging. To have an even deeper level of privacy, when setting up your membership, choose a “handle”. For example “top chica”, or “friendly founder” vs using your name.
Even if you use your real name when setting up your profile, we will not share your name when exchanging messages with other members.
The beauty of this project is that the messages come from strangers. Someone you don’t even know cares enough to take a few minutes of their time to send a message. Your phone number is never known to them, and you never know who the message is sent to.
A: Your membership payment is used to supplement the cost of making the program work. Making sure that the messages are sent out to people that need them, that the message is kind and empowering, and that it is curated for the person that receives it.
A: Most messages that members receive are from other members of the QUOKA community. From time to time you will receive system messages to customize your preferences, and prompt messages to support engagement.
A: Most messages that you send are seen by other members of QUOKA. All messages sent are seen by the internal QUOKA team. Messages that are spammy in nature or harmful for the community vibe are only seen by the QUOKA team.

A: If malicious messages are sent, QUOKA prevents them from getting to you. We cannot prevent members from sending malicious messages. QUOKA is a safe space for people to express whatever they would like. Since all messages sent in are first analyzed by QUOKA, malicious or negative in nature messages are prevented from being sent out to other members. We recognize that if someone is sending in malicious messages, they may need resources of support, and those are provided on an individual basis to members.
