Turn your passions into actions.

Our one mission is to create a more authentically connected world by enabling our users to turn their passions into actions.

The Problem

A 2017 study found that teenagers are increasingly depressed, feel hopeless and are more likely to consider suicide. Researchers found a sudden increase in teens’ symptoms of depression, suicide risk factors and suicide rates in 2012 – around the time when smartphones became popular, says Jean Twenge, one of the authors of the study. 

While other social media companies try to keep you tethered to your phone, Trafficlight encourages individuals get off their phones and into the real world by facilitating meetups between like-minded people.


"This app has really helped me connect with other students at my university (UNC) in a very unique way! There are countless features to choose from, and can be used for meeting up with students from your classes too. Awesome app, will be using it a lot!"
App Store Review

"Great app for meeting like-minded people."


Why is it named trafficlight?

It is called Trafficlight because we all walk past interesting people every single day on the way to work, at the grocery store, and even something as seemingly insignificant as a Trafficlight; however, we rarely stop to talk to these people, because we simply don’t have enough time in the day to express our interests to the world, in order to find the like-minded people all around us. Trafficlight is a way to find those potentially lost connections – both literally at a Trafficlight or more metaphorically – that we don’t think about on a day-to-day basis.

Is my privacy safe?

We take privacy very seriously. Period. We have taken strenuous back-end steps to encrypt your data, so that you and your data is safe. While Trafficlight requests your location to connect you with other individuals, we will never display or broadcast your location to other users or third-parties. Lastly, we will never sell your data. Any advertising on our platform will be vetted for quality control, and will be approved by us. If you at any point do not feel safe on our platform, simply shake your device to report a concern, and we will take care of the rest.

Why Trafficlight?

Other applications don’t want you to leave your phone; they want you to stay on your phone as long as possible, swiping away for friends, because they make money every time you accidentally tap an add. At Trafficlight, we actually want to see people make more meaningful connections, so there is no profile swiping on our platform. Simply select the activity you want to do, filter for who you want to do that activity with, and message them to meet-up!

Can I add custom events or filters?

We do not currently allow users to create custom events or create custom profile tags, but we are looking into the possibility.

However, if you would like to suggest an activity, filter, or any other feature, simply shake your device and send us some feedback! We’d love to hear from you!
