The Reason Why New App Vero Is Actually SHADY As Hell

More Celebrity News ►►

Find out why people are saying Vero is the new Instagram…and why others are warning people to stay off it.

If you’re straight-up over Instagram’s algorithm changes, then you definitely aren’t alone.

So what is Vero? Well, much like Instagram, it’s a photo sharing app. But unlike Instagram, you probably haven’t heard of it before. In fact, just a week ago, Vero wasn’t even ranked in the App store’s top 1500 apps. But today it is THE most popular app in the App store. And it’s all thanks to Instagram users looking for a better version of Instagram.

Vero is an ad-free social network that QUOTE, “lets you be yourself”. The creator of the app said he started it because he was sick of the privacy policies of ad-based social networks, like Facebook and Instagram.

The app itself is, as we said earlier, is very similar to Instagram, with a few big differences. Vero not only lets users share pictures, but also lets you share texts, URLs, and even recommendations for books, TV shows, and movies.

So, basically everything you could ever want out of a social media app.

Of course, there is another thing Vero has that Instagram doesn’t: The Vero app sorts posts chronologically. Which is something Instagram used to do, until last year when it started sorting things out based on an algorithm that puts everything out of order.

News Flash Instagram: We do not like your algorithm, and we never will.

Another thing Vero allows users to do is separate their connections with other users categorically. So, you can designate people as close friends, friends, acquaintances, or followers, and opt to share posts specifically with these groups.

I know what you’re thinking — this is all WAY too good to be true. And it actually gets even better. Vero also has a much better privacy policy than other social apps, because it only collects QUOTE “a minimal amount of data about its users”, like names, email addresses and phone numbers. And Vero does NOT provide data to advertisers or other third parties.

If all this sounds way too good to be true, however, one user pointed out what seems to be a red flag in Vero’s Terms of Service.


Upon using Vero, users give the company the license to use your name, voice, and likeness, as well as free access to basically do whatever they want with your content.

Another red flag pointed out, was that in order to delete your account, you have to send in a request, and hope that someone from the company reads it and accepts your request.

Okay that’s actually pretty messed up.

One final question you might have is–how does Vero make money if it doesn’t have ads? Well, the app isn’t making money just yet, but the company is planning to eventually rely on user subscriptions for the majority of its revenue. CNBC reported the subscription fee will be QUOTE “a few dollars a year”.

Wow. Okay so now I’m dying to hear what YOU guys think of Vero–are you downloading it as I speak, or are those Terms of Service throwing you off?
