Instead of a mystifying wall of text, we wanted to create broad industry change and transform privacy policies into a clear, simple design that uses visual cues to allow users to understand how an app collects and shares their data.
It’s clear privacy policies, as we know them, were written for lawyers (like me), not real people.
We want to change the way developers design privacy policies and the way consumers digest them. As a security company dedicated to helping users feel safe on mobile, we believe that you shouldn’t have to trade your privacy for convenience. Everyone with a smartphone has the right to know exactly what kind of information an app has access to and with whom it is shared.
We hope developers everywhere will leverage our Private Parts toolkit so we can transform privacy policies and empower our end users together as an industry.
