Privly is an open source community project for taking back control of personal information. Every time you accept the Terms of Service of Facebook, Google, Twitter and the like, you give them the right to do whatever they wish with your data. More often than not, that involves selling your privacy.
Privly makes it impossible for others to control your data. By installing our browser extension, you are able to keep your content, well, your content. For those who don’t have the extension installed, they see a simple link that sends them to your post, photo, video, etc. For those who do have the extension installed, they are able to see your post on the page as it was intended. That’s because the extension pulls the data from the other side of the link into your Facebook page, Twitter feed, etc, seamlessly, without supplying that data to data miners. Meaning your content stays, your content.
•Give you the ability to share/post/tweet/chat anywhere without giving the host site access to the content
•Give you the power to grant or revoke access to your content to anyone or anywhere
•Give the content creator ownership of their data
Privly Does NOT:
•Use or sell your data
•Give your data to third party companies
•Own your content, you do
Privly has proven itself as a concept. You can use it right now with Facebook, Gmail, Google+, Twitter, Reddit, and just about anywhere else, but it still needs significant development and testing.
While we are developing, we are also working on making it easier for folks to understand why they need Priv.ly, how it works, and how easy it all is
We would love to have you support our efforts, by joining our team, making a donation, sharing our project with those you know, and even reporting any bugs you find as you try it out.
Thanks for taking a look and remember to share Priv(ate)ly.
-The Priv.ly Team.
