Company Profile/

Digi.me is the leading company enabling the Internet of Me, where the individual is at the centre of their digital life, owning and controlling their data.

Digi.me aggregates all a user’s data (social, financial, health, purchases, positional and more) into a single local library under the users direct control and ownership on their device(s) and personal cloud of their choice – hence their library is 100% private to them.  Digi.me provides a user interface for the user to engage with their own data (view, search, collections, insights, export and much more) so that they have an immediate benefit from owning their own data.  Digi.me is therefore a librarian for the user with the unique proposition of being local and covering all their life data.

Digi.me then provides a Permission Access capability where businesses can request, through digi.me’s unique certificate system, data from the user and, if the user agrees, digi.me will pass the data to the business/app/website.  This allows a business to access “Rich data” which is wider, deeper, 100% accurate, permissioned, efficient (single source, normalised) increasing knowledge, engagement, trust, innovation ability whilst meeting all current and projected data protection acts.

We asked what can mobile tech industries can do to better prepare for similar attacks and protect consumers…

Positives to take from WhatsApp sharing personal data with Facebook

At the time that it was bought in 2014, WhatsApp made overtures to its 450 million users, assuring them that their privacy (and their user data) was not on the table as part of the deal.
