Dashlane is at the Personal Democracy Forum (#pdf12) today in New York City! We’re excited to be part of a exciting group of people and organizations working at the intersection of public policy and technology.
We’re on on a PDF panel today about online privacy called “Privacy As If Users Matter,” speaking about why Dashlane goes to great lengths to protect users’ personal data — even from us! — and why this is the only way the Internet can grow sustainably moving forward.
The traditional Silicon Valley personal data model asks users to give them all their personal data so they can make the Internet better for them. What we’re saying is quite different. We tell our users, keep your data. We’ll just help you organize it and use it, but you stay in complete control of it. Indeed, we can’t even access your personal data! We built our technology this way and we’re proud of it. We’re committed to proving that this is not only a sound moral practice, but a sustainable business strategy as well.
In the PDF program we’ve published a quiz in order to call attendees’ attention to online privacy issues. I often feel that in the digital rights movement, online privacy lags behind in terms of coverage, even though the truth is that without online privacy rights, no other digital right is truly assured.
Take the quiz, below, now and join Dashlane’s campaign to #demandprivacy by tweeting why you think online privacy rights are important!
Share this quiz with friends and join us in our campaign to #demandprivacy from tech companies. We, like you, truly believe that the way that most tech companies currently approach their users’ personal data is wrong and unsustainable.
The future of the Internet depends on driving consumer awareness around how important ensuring online privacy rights is. Join us!
