Are your employees looking for love in all the wrong places?

With Nudge Security, you can automatically nudge users to delete accounts for dating apps or other non-work categories as soon as they are created—no awkward conversations necessary.

We’ve all done it. You go to sign up for a new web service or SaaS account, and you accidentally type in your work email instead of your personal email, or vice versa. The “sign up with Google” option makes this error even more likely when you sign up for a new account—it’s hard to even notice that you’re signed in with your work account rather than your personal account. 

For most subscription services (news sites, food delivery, travel), this isn’t a very big deal. But things get awkward when it comes to dating sites, or worse, OnlyFans accounts. 😬 Who wants to be the one to tell the CEO that they accidentally (we assume…) created an Ashley Madison account on their work email?

Fortunately, we can help you (and your employees) avoid this whole sticky wicket. With Nudge Security, you can set up a rule to automatically nudge users to delete accounts for dating apps, or other non-work categories, as soon as they are created—no awkward conversations necessary. 

When Nudge Security discovers a new user account, our AI engine automatically categorizes it based on its purpose (i.e productivity apps, project management, dev tools, etc). One of those categories, helpfully, is for “dating sites” (this happens more often than you might think), which you can use to trigger automated actions in response to new accounts.

Here’s how it all works…

1. Discover SaaS apps automatically—including accidental dating app signups. 

Nudge Security discovers every new SaaS app your employees sign up for using their corporate email address. When a user mistakenly (or not so mistakenly) uses their work account to sign up for a dating app, Nudge Security will “see” that and categorize the app accordingly.

2. Nudge employees to delete inappropriate accounts—without the awkward conversation.

An easy button for dealing with employee dating accounts? Yes, please. Nudges can help you avoid app usage conversations that would be uncomfortable for everyone involved. 

When you send a nudge through Nudge Security, your employee will receive an email or Slack message asking them to delete their personal account. The employee can respond by clicking an option directly within the nudge itself.

3. Enable a “set it and forget it” automation.

You can send one-time nudges directly from an app or account overview, or you can put them on auto-pilot using rules. Rules make it easy to, say, enforce MFA as soon as an employee signs up for a new DevOps account—or in the case of dating profiles, to remind employees to keep their personal apps on their personal email account. 

Nudge Security allows you to create a rule to nudge employees automatically any time they sign up for an account with a certain app category, including Dating, so the employee can be notified immediately of their mistake without using up precious mental energy or space on your own to-do list. In the example below, any time an employee uses their work email to sign up for a dating app, they’ll receive a Slack or email notification asking them to delete the account. 

4. Watch as account statuses are updated.

As soon as your employees respond to a nudge saying they’ve removed their account, you’ll see their account statuses change to “deleted” within Nudge Security. 

You can also see their nudge responses under “Nudge History,” which includes both the responses they’ve chosen and any commentary they may have added.
