Do you want to be able to speak your mind but not have anyone know who you are? Kandid is one way to do just that. You are able to set which feed your comments are posted to, such as just students at your school or for your whole city. You can see what's going on in your nearby area, chat with others, and even comment on other people's posts without letting anyone know who you are. No user names are required. You can private message to connect with others, and tag your friends anonymously so they can get in on the action.
- See a private feed for just you and students on campus
- Comment to just students at your school or the whole city
- See what's going on both on campus and in town
- Connect with private messages

If you want the freedom to speak your mind, the DarkChat app lets you do just that. It has several features including the ability to hide chats from people you don't want to confront, create a dark room and chat using a different avatar, and express yourself with memes in the chat room. Light a candle, and if the members of the chat agree, you can light the room to see who is who. Earn free candles by posting secrets, sharing memes and posts on your social networks, by inviting friends to DarkChat, and by completing your profile.

PURE is a discreet, anonymous dating app. Forget about chatting: just submit a selfie, and if both you and the person you've “liked” agree, you can make arrangements to meet up, ASAP. There's really no chatting involved. This is more of a hookup app than anything else, but it is completely anonymous in that you don't have to provide your email, a username, or Facebook login info. It offers end-to-end encryption and all chat history self-destructs after an hour. All payment info is handled by Apple, so there's no way for the app developers to have access to your information, either. So far, PURE is being used the most in London, Los Angeles, New York, Moscow, and Mexico City.
- Totally anonymous: no need to enter email, Facebook login, or username info
- All chat history self destructs after an hour
- Connect ASAP with interested locals
- All you need is a selfie
- Secure, safe, and private
Chat Rooms with Strangers has a very simple user interface. It's no frills but colorful in a friendly sort of way. The app is highly rated by hundreds of users, whom I imagine mostly have made the in-app purchases to make the pesky pop-up ads go away and/or to have the extra feature of being able to select the gender they will be anonymously matched up with. Apart from gender selection, everything else is up to the app. It randomly matches you up with one stranger at a time whom you have the option of starting a conversation with or skipping.
- Completely anonymous: you just get matched up with a name
- Pornography and profanity behavior are forbidden and offenders may be blocked
- Skip as many matches as you like
- Optionally save conversations

You don't need to create a complex profile with personal information; just offer a nickname and an avatar and you're set. Rooms can be about your hobbies, your family, or your work. You can join random rooms or those started by or joined by your friends.
