Surprise, your apps send a ton of your data to tracking companies
Trackers embedded in the apps you install collect all sorts of data behind your back, including your phone number, email address, and your precise location. NBC’s Vicky Nguyen investigated, sat down with our Chief Technology Officer, and ultimately recommended installing our Privacy Pro app, which has an awesome free version that you can install here. Also check out our paid features with a 7 day free trial of Secure Mode, which encrypts all your HTTP connections to keep your personal info private and secure.
We are so happy that the issue of app tracking has gotten so much attention lately. While this violation of our privacy is obviously not a good thing, the first step in stopping this practice is consumer awareness. The next step is to empower consumers with tools to take back control, tools like Disconnect's Privacy Pro for iOS. If you're interested in learning more about our Privacy Pro product for iOS check out our recent blog post about our recent updates. And if you're not on iOS we have you covered with our other apps that you can learn more about here.
