About this app

Forfeit is an accountability app that takes your money if you don't complete your habits. We're based on the scientifically backed concept of Habit Contracts - popularised by Atomic Habits - that losing money is highly motivational.

Out 20k+ users have achieved a 94% success rate on over 75k forfeits, staking over $1m dollars.

HOW IT WORKS
1. Set your forfeit
Set the task/habit that you want to complete, when you want to complete it by, and how much you'll lose if you don't complete it.

2. Submit your evidence
Verify that you completed your habit using any of the methods defined below. This can be in the form of a photo, timelapse, self-verify, friend verify, GPS check-in, a web tracking limit, a Strava run, a Whoop activity, a MyFitnessPal meal or anything else.

3. Or you lose money
If you don't send evidence in time, you lose money. This rarely happens - only 6% of forfeits fail. If you do fail, you can appeal the failed forfeit - we only want you to fail if it's a willpower issue, not if life gets in the way!


VERIFICATION METHODS
• Photo
Take a photo of the task that you completed, and an AI will verify if your photo matches your description.
Examples: At the gym, inbox zero, Duolingo completed, homework submitted, taking medication.

• Timelapse
Record a timelapse of you completing the tasks that you completed, and a human will verify if your photo matches your description.
Examples: Meditating, nighttime routine, stretching, working for 1hr.

• Self-Verify
Simply verify if you completed this task. No need for evidence!
Examples: No smoking, no drinking, no vaping, absolutely anything!

• Friend-Verify
Have an accountability buddy testify to whether you did or didn't complete a task.
Examples: No drinking, no phone in the house, no eating junk food.

• GPS Check-in
Set a GPS location that you must be within 100m of by the deadline.
Examples: Check into the gym, work on time, home by a certain time.

• GPS Avoid
Set a location that you won't be within a certain radius of at the deadline.
Examples: Not being at a bar on the weekends, leaving the house at a certain time.

• RescueTime integration
We sync with RescueTime, a web time-tracking app. You can use this to set thresholds on websites/desktop apps.
Examples: Max 30 mins on reddit.com, minimum 2hrs on VSCode, max 30 mins on gmail.com

• Pomorodo timer
This is a timer that if you click off, you fail.
Examples: Working for 30 mins, meditating for 20 mins, studying for 45 mins.



OTHER FEATURES
• X days/week: Set forfeits to be due a certain of times per week (eg, work out 3x/week)
• Certain days/week: Set forfeits only to be due on certain days (eg, weekdays, or Mo/We/Fr)
• Appeal anything: If you have to skip a submission, simply send in an appeal, and it'll be reviewed in a few hours by a human.
• Varying leniency modes: Depending on your leniency mode (lenient, normal, hard), you may or may not be required to justify your appeal with evidence. Hard mode doesn't allow appeals.
• Text accountability: If you fail, a text will be sent to your friends, letting them know that you failed.


COMING SOON
• Android Screen Time integration
• AI Accountability Coach

First of all, super cool idea. Love the app interface. Very intuitive, easy to use, fast and simple. I like how every concept is easy to understand and is very thoughtfully designed, for e.g. Time lapse feature, option to delete the challenge in 10 minutes, and option to put no money at all and trusting my own word. Stats tab is cool too. I would definitely keep it and use it soon. I will also recommend it to my friends.
