The menstruation tracking application Flo released an “Anonymous Mode,” The Verge reports. The feature allows individuals to use the app without providing their name, email or IP addresses. Company officials said the decision to create the feature was in response to the U.S. Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade. To remove the personally identifying information, Flo partnered with web infrastructure company Cloudflare to utilize a different internet standard — “oblivious HTTP" — which splits data from the IP address and relies on a relay service that transmits encrypted data between Flo’s servers and the user.
