What is W App (Slay)?

W App (also known as Slay outside Australia) is a social media app for young people that lets you create a profile and interact with friends from your school by semi-anonymously posting and answering positive polls. When you sign up, you are asked for your full name and age and prompted to find your school by sharing your location, phone number and contacts list. The sign-up process does not guarantee that adults will be prevented from joining and it involves sharing personal information with Slay GmbH, the creators of the app.

When you sign up you are prompted to create and answer positive polls that pose a complimentary question, such as ‘Who has the best playlist?’, and then list four friends as answers to each poll. You can see the gender and school class of someone who compliments you, but not their name. You can also add Instagram, Snapchat and TikTok accounts to your profile, meaning there is the potential to link lots of personal information to your profile. You can also send ‘anonymous’ voice messages to your friends. The app is free to use, but by paying a subscription you can see who compliments you.
