an anonymous, mental health social media
mobile application for Dartmouth students
Unmasked Project is an anonymous, mental health social media mobile application for Dartmouth students, by Dartmouth students. On the app, students can take off their masks and share what’s really going. Trained students will moderate the community forum. This app would not have been possible without the support of our sponsors: the Dartmouth Digital Applied Learning and Innovation Lab (DALI), the Magnuson Center for Entrepreneurship, the Dartmouth Investment & Philanthropy Program (DIPP), and Alpha Theta.

1. Is it really anonymous?
Yes! The app is completely anonymous with one exception. ONLY in the event of serious perceived threats to self or others will we provide local law enforcement with access to personally identifiable information. No one directly associated with the app will have access to user data. All user data is encrypted.

2. Is it safe?
Yes! We have a team of Unmasked moderators, who have gone through Dick’s House-certified mental health peer support training, that will regularly review content on the app. Please use flagging and direct message reporting features if you ever run into malicious content.

3. When will it be available on Android?
We will begin Android development after we see the results of our iOS launch.

4. How do I contact the Unmasked team?
If you have any questions, concerns, or are interested in joining our team, please contact us at help@unmaskedproject.com.
