Innovation has changed the lives of the people around the world. We have seen innovative gadgets launch, and we have seen innovative products change the way we look then and now. I consider Supportiv as an innovative application that helps people who cannot describe their issues publicly.
What is Supportiv?
UPDATE : Supportiv, the digital health app that matches users with live, moderated support groups has been awarded a $25,000 grant by Tamer Fund for Social Ventures.
The Supportiv primary goal is to help the people who cannot talk or discuss their personal life issues in public, family, and friends. There are a lot of people in the world who are going through physical abuse to mental stress.
If you are someone who is confused, lonely, stressed, sad, upset, frustrated with life and you get my point. Anyone who has negative thoughts about their life issues and you cannot discuss them openly, or you don’t have someone to talk to, then Supportiv comes in handy.
Supportiv helps you connect with the peer-to-peer group, who are suffering or suffered from same issues. They can understand you very well, and you can discuss your issues with your openly while concealing your identity.
You can talk to real-humans anonymously and discuss your problem. The company has also set up live human monitoring to ensure that the environment in the app is safe and troll-free.
How to use Supportiv App?
The Supportiv is available for iOS and Android, so it works on your older smartphones as well.
Step 1: Always check the permission the application asks you to grant. In the case of Supportiv, they have maintained the anonymity.
Step 2: After installing the application on your smartphone, then you launch it. Click on “Let’s begin.”

Step 4: Once you have entered the tags that relate to your struggles and problems, then click on “Do The Magic.”
Step 5: It takes few moments to connect your moderator, who will begin to monitor your online activity to make sure that the chat is safe and troll free. It takes few moments to minutes to assign a moderator based on your struggles, and you will be notified about it even when you close the app.
Step 6: You can also do other things while waiting to assign a moderator to your chats. You can explore a little and learn about breathing exercise, quiz, and learn what relaxes you the most.
The Supportiv has decided to keep you entertained and learn something new while assigning you a moderator. It does take few moments to minutes to assign a moderator.
I have played the Quiz and completed it, but the moderator was not assigned yet. I have closed the app, but after few minutes I have seen a notification about moderator status.
What are the primary features of the Supportiv?
News Feed: When you launch the app from the menu, and you will find a long list of useful content that helps you solve your issues. They are very useful for the person because they were customised for people suffering from a specific problem.
Analytics: The Supportiv has inbuilt analytics that keeps a track on how you are feeling in last thirty days. You can use the analytics to understand yourself better and make changes in your life. The analytics also tells you what you like the most and how you can fix it by changing few things.
Anonymous and secure: We have shown you the app permission, which makes it clear that the Supportiv does not collect any personal data from you. The personal information not used in this app, thus making it anonymous. They also keep your identity anonymous while using the service, which makes it even more secure.
Moderators: The Company decided to keep live human moderators to keep a check on the virtual group rooms, and the moderators will ensure to keep the chat clean. You don’t have to worry about the trolls and fake users on the platform.
Fee: These applications require funds to function properly. Many companies’ sell users’ information or display advertisements, but Supportiv does none of it. The Supportiv charges you $0.17 minute, so you pay only when you are using the service. The fee helps the company function and maintain the quality and even introduce new features in future.
The Supportiv helps the community by saving them from problems that they cannot share with the close ones or anybody. It also eases the pain of people who don’t have anyone to share and let us know what you think about it.
