Last week we introduced Permission Slip to the world. We were delighted to see coverage in the Washington Post, New York Post, Gizmodo, CNET, and of course Consumer Reports. Permission Slip broke into the top 50 free apps in Apple’s App Store and even trended on Hacker News.
Today, we’re excited to share a major milestone — in the wake of our launch week, Permission Slip users have initiated over 1 million data rights requests!
Consumers finally have easy ways to exercise their privacy rights and take back control of their data from companies. The early traction we’ve seen with Permission Slip proves just how in demand data rights are – and they keep rolling forward. With the Delete Act passing in California this week, the most populated state in the nation now allows consumers to request universal deletion of their information from data brokers. This is a major win for consumer privacy, and we are excited to be part of making universal deletion more accessible to consumers in the months ahead.
We’ll keep posting updates as Permission Slip’s journey continues. If you haven’t tried the app, you can download it here. We’re eager to hear what you think of the service, and where you’d like to see Permission Slip go next.
