Minuum Gives You Full Control of Your Privacy

blog_privacy_wideThe new version of Minuum for iOS gives you more control over your privacy, and how your data is handled.

The problem with Apple’s privacy settings is that they only include one switch for everything: “Full Access” is either on or off, with no in-between. But Full Access is required for simple things like:

– changing settings
– downloading languages
– choosing themes
– enabling keyboard sounds

Clearly, you need more control than this – you need to know that by enabling Full Access for languages and themes, you aren’t also permitting us to collect sensitive information.

We want you to understand that Full Access does not make Minuum collect any typing data. Our new dedicated Privacy Control panel gives you full control over whether you want to share your data, regardless of your Full Access settings.

Just tap on “Privacy Control” in the Minuum app, to find two new options: Share anonymous usage data and Share anonymous typing data. You are welcome to keep these both turned off completely, in which case we will never collect any information about you, your typing, or your usage of Minuum.

We’ve also squashed a few bugs and added in a few user-requested visual modifications with this update. See the app for details!
