Annecto offers you three levels of privacy that are available in both the free and pro versions of the app: Level 1 (Maximized for opportunities and contacts): Your profile is viewable by anyone and you will appear in all nearby search results. Level 2 (Optimized for professional networking): Your profile is viewable only by people in the same field or company. Level 3 (Tailored for selective and private networking): Your information will not be shared with other members. However your profile will still appear in the search results under the anonymous status 'Private Annecto user '. You will be able to connect to other members and vice versa. What are the differences with the check-in possibilities? Annecto offers you three different ways of checking in. 1. By location: the app automatic detects your position using your GPS or your Internet connection. Your position is then mapped using Google Maps. 2. By event: If the event (conference, symposium, party etc.) you are attending is using Annecto, you will be given a unique code that will allow you to connect with other participants. 3. By means of transportation: Whether you are travelling by train or plane or cruise, you will need to enter your train, flight number or select your cruise to be able to meet the other passengers and optimize your time, either waiting or while on board, with new encounters. Note that these options are independent of each other. Therefore, when you check in to a specific event or on a flight or ride, you will not appear in the search list of people checked in by location. This is done to enhance your privacy and maximizes your networking opportunities during your time at a conference or during your journey. What is Annecto-pro? Annecto-pro is the premium version of the app that allows you, for 2.99$, to enjoy enhanced features such as: - Locating professionals up to 5km from your position (instead of 500m for the free version) - Continuing an existing conversation with someone outside the 5km radius (example: a person that you met at an event in Singapore and who'd lost his / her phone number) - Unlimited message history (so go beyond the 5-day limit)
