SootheTM is a Chrome extension made to help people browse the web without seeing malicious content. Our main goal is to prevent online harassment and help users avoid seeing triggers while they browse the web. We strongly believe that no one online should have to worry about this.
The process is simple and subtle: check off the type of content you want to avoid and let us handle the rest! Questionable content is blurred out, if you wish to see it nonetheless you can click to reveal the text.
We developed Soothe in Ottawa, Canada as part of the #HackHarassment challenge sponsored by Major League Hacking. Make sure to join our mailing list to get the latest updates!
Avoid seeing hateful messages in real time (Facebook, Twitter etc.)
We will not filter out content until we determine the context, meaning you won't miss out on anything.
If we happened to miss a word/phrase, you can tag it and help us become a more powerful tool!
Only check off the content you want to avoid.
