In the wake of a privacy scandal, the editor-in-chief of the secret sharing app Whisper has left the company.
In October the Guardian published reports alleging that Whisper, which describes itself as "the safest place on the Internet," was not actually providing anonymity for its users as it claimed. Reports alleged that the company was actually tracking some users' locations, despite their asking not be tracked.
Neetzan Zimmerman, who joined as the head editor of Whisper in January 2014, vigorously defended the company against the claims. However, he and other employees were suspended in late October so that an internal investigation could be conducted, according to a Capital New York report.
"We conducted an internal review that found no wrongdoing. Nevertheless Neetzan is no longer with the company. We wish him well in the future and can't wait to see what he does next," said Michael Heyward, Whisper's CEO, to CNBC in a statement.
Following Guardian's report, some media organizations also put their partnership with Whisper on hold, including BuzzFeed and Fusion.
