Absolute control over your data

Your personal data is your private asset and that’s why our platform is designed to help you take control over your data. When you connect a data source, your data is automatically encrypted and stored only on your personal database (3). Access your raw data anytime and manage your database preferences (4, 5, 6).

 

FAQ


 

How is my data de-identified?

No identifiable information is attached to your data. You can even use the app without creating an account, but you will not have the option to back up your data to the cloud (once this feature becomes available) in case you want to free up space on your device or transfer your data to another device.

How is my data secured?

Your data is by default only stored on your personal database on your device. Your data is by default encrypted using AES-256 bit encryption, which means that for someone to be able to break into your database they would need 50 supercomputers running for 3x10^51 years in order to decrypt your data.

Aren’t there other apps that do this?

There are apps that can visualize your health data, others that just show your screen time and app usage, and manual ways to export your location and transportation data. Atlys Explorer allows you to combine all your data in one simple and secure platform, giving you control to manage your data and gain value from it.

How do you have permission to pull data from other services and sensors?

You, the user, give explicit permission to Atlys Explorer to enable a gateway that directly accesses services and sensors in your smartphone. For Health data, the History API is used to pull your data from Google Fit after you have logged into your Google Fit account and given permission.

How do I know you don’t collect a copy of our data?

The Atlys Explorer is a standalone app, meaning we don’t have servers that speak to the mobile app to transfer any data, the app is offline by default. Future versions of the app will provide users with the option to backup their data to the cloud.

Can I use the app completely offline?

Some data sources require an internet connection (e.g. data from Google Fit or GPS) to produce the data, but you will always have access to your dashboard and raw data from your personal database, even without internet connection.

How do I make sure that my data is not collected by 3rd parties?

Atlys has no interest in sharing your data with anybody. Our business model is rooted in giving our users absolute control and privacy over their personal information. We consider personal data an asset and we are like a bank that helps you secure, manage, and use your digital assets however you wish.

If the app is free, and you don’t sell our data, how do you make money?

The free tier of our applications provides all the tools needed to access, manage, and visualize your data. Future versions of the app will incorporate an end-to-end encrypted (E2EE) private network that will allow you to share any data with friends, family, health professionals, organizations, or anyone else you trust. These private networks will be available to paid subscribers.

How can you ensure that the platform can be free for users?

In order for our business model to work, we need to ensure that user data is kept secure and private with only the user having absolute control and ownership. We treat your data as an asset and provide tools and resources to help you manage and use it. Due to the nature of this asset, being digital information, we are able to provide most of the base features for free (this includes, collecting, storing, visualizing data, and more). Once your data is in your control, you can decide to use it in any way you want. We believe that throughout a user's lifetime, they might come across situations where they need to send data to someone else - in these situations, the person or organization receiving the data must have a paid subscription. The sender and receiver arrange and agree to terms that they determine, we do not have any control or access over the terms of the agreements.

Technical Details


  1. Screen Time and Digital Activity data are collected by Atlys Explorer by running a service in the background to detect when the device is unlocked and locked, and when a new app is launched and closed. Screen time and app usage are calculate by measuring the time between the aforementioned activities. This data is stored only in the users personal database.

  2. For the beta version of Atlys Explorer users will initially only have the option to select from the default widgets such as “Distracted Driving” which compares user’s driving speed and number of times they unlocked their smartphone. The production version of Atlys Explorer will have features that allow for combining any data set the user wants to visualize.

  3. In this beta version of Atlys Explorer users can only start collecting their sensor data, and store them their own device. All data from connected sources are de-identified at source and encrypted using AES-256 bit encryption. In future versions of Atlys Explorer users will have the option to backup their data to a private and encrypted cloud database, as well as pulling historical data from other sources or uploading their data to the app as a CSV file.

  4. Atlys Explorer only uses your device’s GPS sensor to track your location - if you have selected for your location data to be collected. The GPS coordinates collected are converted into addresses and locations using Mapbox’s reverse geocoding API service.

  5. Health data is collected from the Google Fit app. To enable this data source, users will be prompted to log in to Google Fit and allow Atlys Explorer to gather their health data into their personal encrypted database. Users will have the option to allow Atlys Explorer to automatically update their database with their health data, manually update, or set to update at regular intervals - for example every 2 hours. Connecting to other third-party health apps coming soon.

  6. As we grow, we will add new data sources that can be connected to Atlys Explorer. Coming soon are Fitbit, mood tracking, social media (Facebook and Twitter data), and Google search history.
