The CITIZEN App is a new tech that started in late 2016 and is the outgrowth of something called Viglante by Andrew Frame, co-creator of the VoIP startup Ooma. The problem with its last incarnation Viglante is that, according to TechCrunch it “encouraged vigilantism, racial profiling and generally unsafe behavior” to which Mr. Frame chalked it up to a “learning experience.”
Frame re-branded Viglante to CITIZEN App after a $12 million investment from Sequoia Capital, the same venture capital firm that invested in Apple, YouTube, and many other famed tech companies.
