Proxxi is a new service that connects you with people and things around you, wherever you are. Instead of "following people", you "follow your location” and you automatically become a member of the ad hoc community made of people near you. You see what's happening around you and you can actively participate in this proximity-based community. Your location is never shared unless you explicitly choose to share it, so your privacy is protected.
Proxxi lets you communicate with other users either publicly by commenting on a post, or privately using a safe, anonymous email relay service. When using the private email option, Proxxi assigns temporary email addresses to let you exchange emails with other users using your normal email app, but without revealing your real email address.
