Featured Startup Pitch: Lemon Group Messenger – A new, privacy-focused approach to group messaging
COMPANY: Lemon Group Messenger
Create group chats without sharing your phone number.
Lemon Group Messenger is a new group messaging app that prioritizes on privacy and efficiency. You can create or join groups without ever having to give away your personal information like your phone number or Facebook account. This is how it works: You create a group, and the app will give you a unique code—”GJH89G” for example. That code will be the code of the group which people will use to join that group. This is a great innovation of the traditional messaging service, since being in a group chat most of the time doesn’t mean you know everyone and you wouldn’t want to have direct contact with every one of them. In Lemon Group Messenger, users cannot contact other users directly nor have any of their private information. Once your group is full you can just close admissions to the group and nobody will be able to join after that. You can also set a group limit when creating the group.
What does it do?
The app has two functions, you can either create or join a group. When you create a group, the app will create a unique code for that group. That will be the code of the group and people can join with the code.
Why do we need it?
It helps protect the user’s privacy and makes creating a group more efficient. Most of the times when you are in a group chat, you don’t know everyone in the group and don’t want them to have your number or contact you directly.
Who is it for?
It is for schools, for the office, for weddings, or any type of group you want to create easily and efficiently. It is directed to all those people who are in an endless number of groups where they don’t know most of the people in the group.
What makes it stand out from the crowd?
It’s a great innovation of the traditional messaging service, since being in a group chat doesn’t always mean you know everyone and you wouldn’t want to have direct contact with every one of them. In Lemon this doesn’t happen.
DIFFERENTIATORS VS. THE COMPETITION
My competitors are WhatsApp and Facebook. In my app you don’t have to share your phone number or personal information to be a part of a group, and nobody would be able to contact you directly.
