At POPin, our mission is to help leaders build trust, drive clarity, and create buy-in so teams feel heard and perform at their best. POPin Creators have the option to create POPins in which users will be either "anonymous" or "named". It’s important to note that within a POPin, all responses can either be named or anonymous, but not both. In other words, there are really only two possibilities that exist in regards to anonymity within a POPin:

  1. Anonymous Responses: If you participate in a POPin anonymously, whether answering a question, voting, commenting, we will not share your identity with the company or organization that is using POPin. Of course, do keep in mind your style: if your response contains personal information or a style clearly identifiable and unique to you, others may be able to figure out your identity. There are some exceptions in which we may be forced to share identities, specifically to comply with a subpoena, respond to a government request, or to protect someone's safety. Check out all the nitty-gritty details in our Privacy Policy.
  2. Named Responses: When a POPin is set to collect 'named' feedback, your name WILL be tied to any actions you complete in that specific POPin. Any content you post in the POPin will indicate "Posting as [your name]". The POPin Creator and all other users in that POPin will have full visibility into who answered and commented. Any likes or dislikes will also be attributed to you.

We take your privacy very seriously. When you participate in a POPin anonymously, whether answering a question, voting, or commenting, we will NOT share your identity with the company or organization creating the POPin. So rest assured, your identity will not be revealed.

POPin may prompt you to log in using your email address to ensure you have the correct access to be a user and/or POPin Creator in your organization. Read more: Why does POPin need my email address to sign in? But again, once you're in an anonymous POPin session, you are anonymous.

Note: This article is a general summary, subject to change. You'll find the in-depth info in our privacy policy and terms of service.
