NYGal was fortunate to catch news of this life-changing app that will completely change your New York dating game! No longer will you have to worry about unsolicited dick pics via messaging apps. And, phew! What a relief that is for all NYGals running around the dating scene of New York. I mean, seriously; what a hook-up culture!
We were fortunate enough to talk to Carissa Lintao, one of the team members, of the Cover app. And, she gave us some great insight on how Cover could benefit you.

When did Cover launch and how has it grown since?
The app launched just last month and is growing slowly, but surely. We’re still in the middle of improving the product and tailoring it to better fit our users’ needs, but we definitely see it taking off sometime this year.
What makes Cover unique?
What makes this app different is that it really is a one-stop shop for any of your NSFW content needs. It’s great to have everything on our phones, available at our fingertips, but sometimes having the separation between our public and more private life is extremely important.
For example, if you share your phone password with someone you necessarily wouldn’t want to stumble upon nudes, Cover is a great app to have. Or, if you’re tired of receiving unsolicited NSFW photos, Cover is the first of it’s kind to actually scan and cover those incoming messages, so you don’t have to see them.
Any personal stories you can tell us in regards to Cover?
The original thought as far as our marketing strategy was to pitch tech outlets. But, the more I thought about it, the more I realized that mainstream women-focused outlets needed to hear about Cover’s NSFW message blocker. A huge problem in today’s day and age is that girls and women receive way too many unsolicited **** pics. The fact that impressionable, underaged girls receive these photos is especially repulsive to me.
At the end of the day, it’s sexual harassment and should not be tolerated. I believe social media, dating, and messaging apps should do a better job at blocking/monitoring these pictures but until then, I genuinely hope that Cover can do the job.
