About Cypher app
Everyone has feelings and secrets, and deep down we want to share them. Where to share them sometime is the problem! Cypher app is just the place, to not only share feelings, but receive the support you are looking for. Sign up anonymously and start using the app straight away! Post secrets, comment on others posts, and show your support by using unique Cypher features.
Our Get Support function also helps to connect you with support organisations outside of Cypher, if you feel you need professional help and advice.
We pride ourselves on keeping you safe online, not only does your anonymity help you be more open, it also keeps you safe. Our team of human moderators and computer algorithms will ensure that we eliminate online bullying and keep you safe from online bullying or intimidation.
Formerly known as 'Silent Secret', Cypher App was established in 2014.
*Please note that Cypher cannot offer individuals advice. We aim to give you the tools to select the help you feel is appropriate.

Our investors & Partners
Cypher is a social community for young people to anonymously share their thoughts, feelings, secrets, news, aspirations and lifestyle. Our social community is built by and for young people, to provide a safe place for you to share your secrets anonymously, provide support to other users and connect to experts & other support organisations when you need them most.
When you first download the Cypher mobile app, you will need to create a new anonymous account by choosing your own username, pin, security question and answer. We will also ask for your age, and gender. This information is not used to identify you (as you will remain anonymous). We only need it to provide personalised services, analyse usage for service improvement and filter content that are appropriate for you.
By using our platform, you give us the full permission to share your post as deemed appropriate for the purpose of: measuring our impact, clinical studies, improving and fine-tuning of our services, signposting you to appropriate support/ emergency services (in extreme-life threatening conditions), training and engagement with our stakeholders (including investors and funders).
We retain the full right of ownership of all posts and content shared on Cypher. However, you have the right to delete your account at anytime, as such all data associated with you will be wiped off from our database.
We take safeguarding of young people seriously. Our services are not directed to persons under 11.
PLEASE NOTE – Cypher cannot provide emergency support, advice or assistance. If you are in an emergency please call the police on 999 or for emotional support call Childline on 0800 1111 if you live in the UK or contact the emergency service of your country.
What if a secret indicates a user is in immediate danger or harm?
If you post a secret that indicates you are in imminent danger or risk of harm, we will send a 'push notification', reassuring you that you are not alone and signposting you to support organisations. We reserve the right to take necessary steps to safeguard you by passing on the secret and geo location data to the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Agency (CEOP) for additional support, in the most serious of cases or to the appropriate authority in your country.
What happens if an inappropriate secret is shared?
We have human moderators and custom algorithm that filter inappropriate and offensive words. Any secret that is flagged will not go live. In addition to our safeguard mechanisms, we also have an in-app feature that allow you to flag/report posts they deem inappropriate. We have this process in place to allow you and other users to have the most inclusive experience as possible without compromising safety on the platform.
