How does BeReal work?

The app operates in the idea that the users should show who they really are through their phone camera. BeReal will ask its users to take mandatory simultaneous photos from both the front and back cameras. This will then provide a depiction of what the users are doing at the moment.

The app’s take on sharing the day to day activities of its users is extremely popular among the Gen Z population.
