Most of the security tools I use are pretty serious-looking beasts: red and black logos, all-caps fonts and intimidating names. So when I saw the adorable elephant mascot for the privacy app called Jumbo, it took me a while to take it seriously.
Jumbo Is the Privacy App You Need Now
You have heard those warnings about all the things that Facebook tracks or the way Google uses your search history to target you with ads, and I’m sure you’ve scanned articles that tell you how to go in and change your settings.
But if you’re like me, you don’t stop what you’re doing and run to the privacy settings to protect yourself.
Choose Your Privacy Levels
I like it when Google tracks my location because I love to look back on my travels. But I don’t need Facebook’s ad network to target my search habits. Jumbo lets you choose what types of privacy settings it’ll monitor.
I love that it not only makes recommendations about privacy settings… it’ll also share short (cute) lessons on why and where privacy is important.
Monitor Jumbo’s Progress
Jumbo is constantly searching for histories to clear, hackers to thwart and advertisers to block. It’s fun to see the progress in the colorful reports.
But What about Jumbo’s Privacy?
Plus they’re unrolling a premium version, which they’re going to need to be able to keep doing what they do.
