However, in April a premium service called The Truth License will enable those who choose the upgrade to see everything that has been said about other members, whether they have chosen to share those comments or not.

It is likely to cost around $1 (£0.70) a month, Ms Cordray said.

“We are going to hold everybody accountable to what they say about others,” she said.

The app was unveiled last autumn because of the outrage. It was branded “creepy” and “terrifying” by some web users.

“But it was a positive thing because we ended up being able to give the people what they wanted.”

Despite the media storm 10,000 people volunteered to beta-test it, Ms Cordray added.

What are major changes in upgraded version of Peeple app :

There are four key changes in app’s original functions :

  • Peeple users will have full control over what goes live on their profiles
  • No one can add others to the app
  • Profiles can be de-activated
  • The star rating system has been replaced with a public view of the total number of recommendations received

Additionally, users who are single can opt to grey-out the “dating” category so they can neither make nor receive recommendations in that area.

Need Facebook Log In Access to use Peeple app

Now users must use their facebook log in access to the application and they can be blocked or reported If they break the rules or regulations. No one use the app anonimously.

To activate the account, a pin code will also be sent to the mobile phone of new members as part of the activation process.

Still Concerns about re-launched app :

However, University of East Anglia law lecturer and privacy advocate Paul Bernal said he still had concerns about the re-launched app.

“The fact that you can no longer rate people who aren’t on it is probably the best thing they have done but it also means it’s unlikely to succeed as it will be much more limited for the people who do join it.

“The idea of de-activating your profile is illusionary because the data is still there and vulnerable,” he added.

“The Truth License over-rides almost all of their safeguards – if people say bad stuff about you that stuff could get out.

“I actually think calling it the Truth License is unbelievably creepy.”
