Alert: Advertised Chatbot Services
The Security Offices have been made aware of advertisements for students to engage with a chatbot to help with stress resulting from academic or personal events (see screenshot below). This service is NOT related to or provided by Duke in any way. The product appears to have been developed by a group known as Interact AI who has no official relationship with any Duke offices or organizations.
If you are in need of help and support, we encourage you to reach out to Duke's Counseling and Psychological Servicesteam for immediate assistance. You will find both in person and virtual resources to support you.
Finally, we'd like to take this opportunity to remind our community about visiting sites behind QR codes and how to protect themselves. Lastly, we recommend you review the privacy policies of third party sites and applications to learn about their information practices.
