13-year-old inventor Daniel Singer joined us live to talk about his popular new app ‘Backdoor.’ It is a free new iOS app allowing users to anonymously message and communicate with their friends and already has 2 million users.

Even though it is anonymous, it is not a one-sided experience, as the recipient can redeem “clues” to find out more about who is messaging to them and as they try to figure out their identity.

Backdoor was created and designed by Daniel Singer, the 13 year-old tech “wunderkind” behind YouTell.com, a popular, free web site (with over 2 million users) that allows users to post questions and receive answers and feedback anonymously from their friends, family and co-workers.

Backdoor provides an easy, playful and intimate way for people to communicate with each other. It introduces a new dynamic to traditional messaging, while allowing users to still have the familiarity of popular messaging apps. Daniel created Backdoor to allow people to interact with a different chat dynamic that allows for a totally new way to communicate and share experiences with friends. He feels that when you remove a key component of a conversation, like identity, you can come up with some pretty cool results which last for a lifetime
