Filteroff is a video-first speed dating app that facilitates authentic connections for singles worldwide. The company was founded in 2019 and is based in New York.

Their mission? To facilitate authentic connections for singles around the world.

The app was established in February 2020, and the main aim is to create authentic human connections and see if you do vibe with a person by being up-front and seeing if you are a good fit with this other person or not.

Zach’s passion for helping people and his love for entrepreneurship have helped him grow these companies and non-profits, allowing them to hit their crowdfunding goals.

Fast forward to 2020, Schleien launched Filteroff, an app that designs users for a 90-second video chat after matching with each other. Users can give each other a “thumbs up” or “thumbs down” afterwards. If they both like each other, users can chat, schedule calls or meet in person. 

‘Filter Off’, the Dating app, includes a video for face-to-face connections, where the chances of meeting someone you vibe with are much higher.

Events support people to deal with loneliness and also find a virtual date.

 ‘Filter Off’ is about genuine relationships, and for those who do connect, the hope is that they continue to meet once the pandemic is over. But it is eventually the decision of the users.
