Appeared in the App Store app that allows users to organize the surveillance of himself. Everyone is welcome on the day to order a “pursuer” — someone who will monitor them.
Follower created a student at new York University Lauren McCarthy. According to her, the idea is to add in a person’s life “a little more spice and adventure”. McCarthy believes that a man who knows he is being watched, tends to get more fun from the daily routine and do something new.
Users leave the application for surveillance through the site Follower.today. In case of approval of their candidatures by other users, they received a link to the app, which will connect them with the observer.
Surveillance is carried out by using GPS data from the user’s device. The owner of the iPhone will not be able to see or hear his pursuer, but he will be reminded of their presence with the client. At the end of the day the Stalker sends his “victim” a photo that shows that “chaser” during the day “was in his hip pocket” and has now completed its work.
