When people are asked, most of them think they have around twenty. Use UpSignOn to centralize your accounts and you will be surprised to see that reality is more around a hundred!
At each account creation, the same pieces of data are asked from us. In particular our password, which we reuse everywhere despite clear advice not to.
Everyone votes for more security and privacy, but only if this is easy.
That is why we design UpSignOn by focusing primarily on the user-experience.
We do believe however that the app’s security must be a prerequisite, an obviousness. Our users type in sensitive data in UpSignOn, so making it secure is a major stake.
The best way to secure your data ? Simply to not have any access to it ourselves! No registration is required with us, and the data you add is always encrypted and stored only on your devices (UpSignOn Perso.) or on your employer’s server (UpSignOn Pro.).
In any case, your are the only person that can read it.
Credentials (login, mdp, …) means privacy.
This is a core topic in our reflection. The massive collection of personal data ultimately poses a problem for democracy. Indeed, and this is the challenge of advertising, the main purpose of these personal data is to acquire a power of influence. The more this power of influence grows, the more our freedom diminishes.
We are therefore committed with UpSignOn to always remain exemplary in terms of respect for privacy.
By trying to limit the use of servers as much as possible, our design proves to be very energy efficient.
We will of course continue to design UpSignOn in this direction. We believe that any digital project today must include a reflection on performance and energy consumption.
Yes, our startup is called dataSmine.
Paul creates the company dataSmine S.A.S in Toulouse in april 2019.
Independently and at the same time, Gireg starts developing the UpSignOn application from Paris.
With the help of a few bottles at sea and a bit of luck, we end up meeting each other.
We discover that we have pretty much the same project and that we are totally aligned with the values we want to defend and with our mission. So we decide to join forces and to collaborate keeping the company AND the app, each with its own name.
