People are no longer storing their personal information on their computers. We live our lives online, sharing more of our daily minutiae on social networks and platforms than ever before. We check in where we hang out, we take pictures of what we eat, we share our ideas and air our grievances. Most are shocked to be discovering that the National Security Administration has been collecting user data by way of PRISM and who knows what other secret initiatives. It has never been more important to monitor your permissions! This is why we’re so excited to launch our latest updates!
Our apps for iOS and Android devices have been overhauled from the ground up. Our browser extension has been updated as well. We’ve worked hard to make every element better and easier. One of the first changes you will notice is our streamlined new branding and interface. This coordinates with our recent redesign of mypermissions.com, so if you haven’t seen that yet, be sure to check it out. Simply tap the icon of the social space you would like to scan, enter your login credentials, and view your permissions. You will either “trust” or “revoke” what’s connected, and we’ve added the ability to select all with one easy click.
Another awesome added feature is push notification. Get real time alerts for Facebook, Google, Twitter, Instagram, Yahoo and Dropbox when your information is being accessed so you are aware of your data activity as things happen. Of course, push notifications can be turned on or off at your discretion.
These updates are in the wake of our LeWeb announcement launching the Trust Certification Program. We will continue to evolve and innovate so that you can take as much control as possible over your personal information.
