iDigitalTimes published an article and full transcript of an interview they held with Dr. Stan Stahl, our Chief Information Security Officer.
In the iDigitalTimes piece, Dr. Stan Stahl talks about the patent pending technology we’ve developed and use to keep user data private and secure. Dr. Stahl also discusses the recent banning of search engine DuckDuckGo in China, and the fact that even Private.me (by design) can’t access its user’s data without explicit user approval. On the topic, Dr. Stahl said, “Let’s say the Chinese government were to come to us or the NSA or something, we’d shrug our soldiers and say that we don’t have that information available. We don’t have it.”
He also explains our plans for the future of Private.me, stating: “Private.me is intended to evolve into a full-bore ecosystem. Everything a user does inside the ecosystem has this forgetfulness quality about it that ultimately gives the user control over privacy…You will find a tipping point toward that proper balance between a desire for privacy and anonymity inside of Private.me… I think we can build this into a very convenient good user interface for a lot of what we all do on the internet. So stay tuned.”
