What can you use the app for?

Spam and privacy issues are found all over the internet. Some users are reluctant to give out any personal details, even their email address. Contactify helps users find a good balance between remaining accessible while maintaining privacy. Users can build a personal contact form through Contactify. This can be posted anywhere the user wants. Others can submit inquiries, requests or messages through the contact form. Those submitting a message never see the user’s actual email information. Contactify also helps reduce the chances of a spammer accessing the user’s email. Through Contactify, users can keep their email address private while allowing anyone to send them a message. Contactify forms can also be embedded on the user’s website or blog.

What is the history and popularity of the app?

Privacy is an ongoing concern for numerous internet users. Contactify was created to help users find a better way to keep their details safe without limiting their accessibility. Users can even post their Contactify form on their website so it is publicly available to anyone while keeping their email address hidden away. Today, many people use Contactify to protect their personal email address and reduce spam.

What are the differences to other apps?

The concept behind Contactify is simple enough but the way it was implemented is what really makes it an attractive option to users. Setting up a Contactify form takes minimal time so anyone can do it as soon as they are ready. The form will hide the user’s email address while still providing others with a link to contact them, which is what really makes this application an appealing resource for many different users.

How does the web app look and feel to use?

The Contactify website has a simple yet elegant design. New users are greeted by a pale blue and white color scheme that keeps the black text easy to read. Color icons are present but kept very small. The entire site seems to be condensed into a small, easily accessible area without appearing confined. The white bar at the center contains content that scrolls as the user selects the various navigational links found at the top of the page. The bottom of the form remains the same and includes the short sign up box.

How does the registration process work?

Signing up for Contactify is very easy. The bottom blue portion of the website contains he “super fast” sign up box. This requires only two pieces of information: the user’s email address and password. After entering the details and clicking the small grey and black “Create Link” button below the form, the user is asked to enter a verification code to prove they are a human. A note at the bottom of the code entry form advises the user that by submitting their information they are automatically agreeing to the Contactify privacy policy and terms of service. Once the form is submitted, the user is given their link which appears to the right of the form area. A confirmation email is also sent and must be accessed to activate the link.

What does it cost to use the application?

Contactify offers a helpful but simple service. A subscription fee or other charge would require additional functionality or improved features. Luckily the application’s creators have kept it priced right where it should be: free. Contactify helps users keep their information private at a cost that anyone can afford.

Who would you recommend the application to?

Contactify is a resource for anyone who has concerns about sharing their email address with others online.
