Have you ever heard of FaceApp, the latest viral trend? No, we really don’t need to ask. Of course, you have.
FaceApp, a Russian mobile app which digitally alters faces, surged in popularity as millions of users transformed their faces to look older. However, it also stirred a controversy for allegedly violating user privacy.
Your data stay safe in your phone
When we were creating our Should I Answer app, we didn’t want to be one of those apps. We’ve always sided with real people against big companies, and we’ve been sticking to it ever since.
Therefore, in contrary to other apps that make living of selling their user’s data to big companies, we’ve chosen another path. Unlike most apps, the Should I Answer app, one of the most popular call blocking apps in the world, works strictly on an anonymous basis. We’re interested neither in your phone number, nor in your phone contacts. So those information stay safe in your mobile phone, they’re never sent to our servers.
Here’s the full list of the permissions the Should I Answer app needs to protect you from unwanted calls:
- Access to your contacts: Without this permission we are not able to distinguish which number is unknown to you. However, everything happens only in your phone, we never send your contacts’ information to our servers (and what’s more, we don’t even really “see” them).
- Access to call log and call history: Without this permission we are not able to check if and which number is calling. Again, it all happens only in your phone.
- Set the application as default phone application: Without this permission we are not able to grant that the app will work without problems.
