Q: How do I create my Truthify profile?
Download the app and follow the instructions. First you must enter and verify your mobile phone number, and then you must create your profile. The easiest way is to login with your facebook profile - or you can create your profile manually.
Q: Why must I register with a mobile number?
It is very important that we validate every Truthify user. Emails are easy to fake, so the mobile number is the best solution we could come up with to have the best chance at ensuring people are who they say they are. Don't worry, we will never call you!
Q: Why do you need to access my camera and microphone?
Your camera and microphone must be accessed in order to record video - a key feature of Truthify. The camera/microphone are only accessed when you press the record button.
Q: Why do you need to access my location?
Your location is only used to improve the experience. You do not need to enable it, but you will not have as meaningful experience without it. For security purposes, your location will never be displayed specifically - it is a general area to help your friends know where you watched the video. We use the location information to improve our services and to provide a better experience for you.
Q: Why do you need to access my photos?
Two reasons - first, to be able to save your profile picture, and second, to be able to store your Truthify videos. That's all.
Q: If I set up my account with my Facebook profile, what information do you import?
Whether you enter your profile manually or you use your Facebook profile, we need your name, gender, profile picture, email, and date of birth to customize the experience for you. This is pretty standard stuff.
Q: Why do I need to add Friends?
You don't have to add friends, but it will significantly improve your experience. You may only send Private and Friend messages to Friends - so if you don't add them you will only be able to send Public or Anonymous messages.
Q: Why do you need to access the contacts in my phone?
Truthify needs to access your contacts in order to add friends or send Truthify messages.
