Before we get to who Zo is, let’s talk about the app she resides in, GroupMe.
GroupMe is a mobile group messaging app owned by Microsoft, similar to What’s App or a simple group chat on your phone; but, only a little more sophisticated with features like creating events or polls. Zo is a social AI (artificial intelligence) chat bot (or robot of sorts) that is automatically added to your contact list by Microsoft.
When added to a group, Zo will have access to your display name, messages, and any other content you and other members of the group share. GroupMe
Did you get that??? It’s a “person” who can read everything that you or others in your group chat post. You can remove this “spy” using the following steps:
- Open the GroupMe app on your phone.
- Click the menu bar at the top left of the app (it looks like 3 horizontal lines)
- Select Contacts.
- Search for “Zo” or scroll down to locate her.
- Click on her name.
- Select Block. The contact should then look like the screenshot below.
Remember, somebody is always watching… 👀👀👀 especially in FREE apps/services!
