What is Peekintoo
Peekintoo is an anonymous social network which enables smartphone users to request and provide 12 second real-time videos from anyplace of interest around the world.
What is a Peek
A Peek refers to a 12 second video taken by any Peekintoo smartphone or tablet user.
What is an anonymous social network
We define it as a place where: 1) You are not requested to provide any information regarding your identity (e.g. legal name, birthdate, birthplace, phone number, etc.); 2) It provides the necessary functionality for protecting your identity; 3) You can interact with other users without knowing their identity.
How long do Peeks last for
Peeks last for one day on the platform unless they are shared on other users' personal timelines and/or through other social media networks.
How do I record a Peek
Simply press the Peek button which is centred at the bottom menu of the screen. Record by keeping your finger pressed anywhere on the screen. You could also record a Peek in fragments by releasing to pause and pressing again to resume recording.
Why can't I record a Peek
Peekintoo is a location-based application, in order to record and upload a Peek, you'll have to enable your location services which you can access in the “settings” option of your mobile device. If this setting has not been activated, you can only request and view Peeks uploaded by other users.
What do I do if my Peek failed to upload
If a Peek has failed to upload it is automatically saved and can be accessed in your personal timeline. You can also record Peeks offline and save them so you can upload them once you're better connected.
I saved a Peek so I could upload it later, how can I access it again
You can access any saved Peeks in your personal timeline.
How can I follow other users
Peeks from users you follow will appear in your Home feed. To follow users whose content you enjoy, select the Peek you like, then tap the “Anonymous User” label located on the top left hand corner of the Peek. You'll then be taken to this user's profile, tap the Follow button. You'll then have the option of nick naming that user (e.g. concert aficionado, NYC, etc.) to better distinguish them in your Home feed.
Why can't I follow a user
If you tap to view a Peek that you like and the label “Super Anonymous User” appears on the top left hand corner of the Peek, this indicates that this user has chosen for that particular video not to be associated with their profile, and in this case, this user cannot be followed.
How can I follow events and hashtags
Search for events or hashtags by going to your Explore menu and tapping “Search for events, places or hashtags”. A drop box will appear where you can access Events or Popular Tags. Tap the event or hashtag you are interested in, and then select the “Follow” button which appears above the Peeks containing the event or hashtag you've selected. The latest Peeks containing hashtags and events you follow will appear in your Home feed and you will also be notified via a push notification.
I don't want to receive a push notification for every single event, hashtag and user I follow.

You can modify this in your settings options located on the top right area of your personal timeline. If you turn off notifications from “things I follow” you will no longer receive pushes for them.
How can I see if I have Peek requests from other users
On the top right hand corner of the app, you will see an inbox folder with a number attached to it. The number indicates how many Peek requests you currently have. Pressing the icon will take you to your inbox which includes the location from which each Peek request was sent. You have up to 2 hours to respond to a request before it disappears.
How can I request a Peek
Press the location icon in the menu bar to navigate the world map containing a heat map which indicates where there are active users. The bottom left of the screen indicates the local time in that area and the bottom right will states approximately how many users there are in that particular area. Tap the request button to ask for a Peek in areas where there are other active users.
Can I send a question or comment along with my Peek request
Yes you can. Press on the message icon which appears on the top right hand corner of the map and type in your question or comment before tapping the request button.
How do I reply to someone's Peek request
You can reply by taping on the request directly via the push notification or accessing the request via your inbox on the top right corner of the screen. You have two hours to reply to a request!
Who can see my Peeks
Any user can view uploaded Peeks. You can select which Peeks you would like to include in your anonymous personal timeline and whether to include the exact location of a Peek. Selecting “On Timeline” makes a Peek visible on your timeline and to your followers, whereas selecting “Off Timeline” hides it from your anonymous timeline, but is still be searchable by hashtag or location. Selecting “On Map” displays the exact location of the Peek on a map, while “Off Map” simply states the city or country to other users.
Why do I have a personal timeline
You have an anonymous personal timeline where you can see all the Peeks that you have uploaded along with the information that you've selected to share. You can select whether to include the exact or abstract location of a Peek (On/Off Map option) and whether to associate a Peek with your personal profile (On/Off Timeline option). In addition, you can find Peeks that you've shared and information about the number of recorded Peeks, views, likes, followers and users you follow.
I now have a personal profile, am I still an anonymous user
Yes, you are still anonymous, and you have control over selecting which of the Peeks you've uploaded will be associated with your anonymous personal timeline. Selecting “On Timeline” makes your Peek visible on your timeline and to your followers, whereas selecting “Off Timeline” hides it from your anonymous timeline, but is still be searchable by hashtag or location.
How can I report inappropriate Peeks
Swipe the Peek to the left where a message stating “Mark as Offensive” will appear, press it, confirm it and the Peek will immediately be removed from the application and be reviewed by the Peekintoo team.
