The internet is not always a safe place for people who have suffered trauma of any degree. Often these people are surprised by certain words that may trigger unwanted memories or emotions tied to this trauma. Triggers can be any word or phrase - such as "cancer" or "rape". We want to make the internet a safe space for everyone.
What it does
After installing the Chrome extension, the user inputs certain words or phrases that may be triggers for them. Untriggered scans each page the user visits and warns the user of a potential trigger before the user can view the page. Ultimately, the user can decide whether they want to continue onto the page or not. This way the user has full control of their online experience.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We are very proud that, with little experience with these languages, we were able to complete the extension and have it fully running. Untriggered is already on the Google Chrome Web Store and available for user download now.
What we learned
What's next for Untriggered
It is already out on the Google Chrome Web Store and available for download. We hope to continue the project by fine-tuning it.
