Mine is an online tool that helps you track your digital footprint.
In about 30 seconds, it can show you all the companies that have your personal data. Whether it’s financial data or social network data, Mine groups data into different categories and shows you how many companies have access to such data.
With this tool, you can erase your personal data from the servers of different companies. This makes it easier to reduce online exposure.
Who Made It?
Mine was developed in Tel Aviv, Israel by three tech geeks—Gal Ringke, Kobi Nissan, and Gal Golan.
How Does It Work?
For starters, Mine asks for the authorization to access your email account. If you grant it permission to do so, it uses the data in your email account to track your digital footprint.
It analyzes the accounts that were created using your email, then it reveals the data that is stored in those accounts.
Since Mine is WCAG-compliant, it doesn’t violate any privacy rights. By looking at different email subjects, this tool helps you track down your personal data.
It analyzes sign up emails, purchase emails, and emails sent from companies that ask for your personal information.
Once it evaluates everything, the data is grouped into different categories—financial data, social network data, online behavior data, and identity data.
Mine also shows you the number of companies that have your data. You can either choose to keep your data or reclaim it from them.
If you choose the latter, every information on the account will be deleted permanently. This tool also has an activity section that highlights the data that you want to reclaim and the essential data that you are planning to keep.
- User-friendliness– This tool has a user-friendly interface that makes it easier to manage your personal data.
- Fast– In about 30 seconds, it gives you a detailed report of companies that have your personal data.
Who Is It Suited For?
- Social media influencers– This might be an appropriate tool for you if you regularly share your personal information with different social media companies.
- Social media assistants– If you want to manage accounts effectively, this might be a suitable option for you.
- If you have shared your information online, this might be a suitable option to track down your info and delete it.
How Much Does It Cost?
Fortunately, Mine is free and doesn’t have a paid version. However, the team behind Mine is planning to introduce a subscription model in the near future.
