Preside Privacy FAQ The App Store
Preside Privacy FAQ




  • In general, how private is the app?

    It is generally very private. In it's default configuration, the app stores all of its information locally, on your device. It does not communicate any email related information to our servers.

    It is possible to configure some features that do remove some privacy, but those features are non-essential and they are clearly demarcated within the app. Please see this question for more information about that. Please note that the other questions in this FAQ consider those privacy-challenged features to be OFF.

  • What access do you have to usage info and other analytics?

You can disable this data collection from the iOS Settings app.

  • Are there opt-in features that make the app less private? What are those features?

    Yes. There are some opt-in features that can make the app slightly less private. These features are clearly demarcated within the app. They are protected with confirmations in such away that it would be nearly impossible to activate them accidentally or without a clear understanding that your privacy is being impacted by their activation. We've listed these below.
