In our journey at digi.me to create compelling reasons and tools for consumers to take control of their data, the new TFP app stands apart. The app, now available for iOS in the App Store and Android in Google Play, allows you to privately scan a lifetime of social posts to find potentially vulgar or objectionable content.
I’m not sure what I can add to this great write up by the Daily Mirror’s Ian Morris, particularly if you are looking for a job – or trying to keep one you already have (including, say, hosting the Oscars):
“Christmas party season is stalking you like a lion pursues an antelope, waiting for you to have one too many glasses of vino and vomit up the veritas all over social media.
But a new app promises to wipe up your social media mess, and might help you stay gainfully employed into 2019. Called “That F***ing Post” it hunts through your accounts looking for things you shouldn’t have said.The Daily Mirror
The app says it can go back to the start of many social media accounts, perhaps tracking down faux pas from years ago. Handy if you wrote things during the throws of youthful indiscretion but now want a paying job.”

The app is a must for just about anyone who’s spent more than 10 minutes posting on social media, but especially for younger people who grew up posting their every thought (or bad idea).
TFP, which stands for That F’ing Post, is built with digi.me’s private sharing technology, and scans posts and comments from Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Pinterest. A simple work flow lets you swipe left to ignore a post or swipe right if you’d like to go back and edit or delete.
The app combined 8 libraries of bad terms and phrases to enable its machine learning, which happens inside the app without ever going to external servers (true edge processing).
That said, it has a lot to learn. Lots of words like “sex” or “shoot” have plenty of fine uses, while other words and phrases escape its digital net. We are encouraging users to send ideas for new word and phrases to add to the library by using #TFP. Check it out and let me know what you think!
