Abstimmungsergebnis: Ein bisschen unheimlich

CBT stands for Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. It is a psychological treatment shown to be effective at helping manage things like anxiety, eating disorders, and phobias. Mindshift CBT is a free app created by the Canadian charitable organization Anxiety Canada that uses evidence-based CBT strategies to help users manage anxiety by reducing worry, stress, and panic. The app offers tools based on these CBT strategies such as thought journals, belief experiments, and coping cards as well as fear ladders and expanding your comfort zone guides. Tools all designed to help better navigate the crazy, messed up world we're living in these days.

Couple that with the fact that Anxiety Canada is a non-profit charitable organization that isn't looking to share or sell a bunch of your personal information to make money and you've got yourself a pretty good deal. Did we mention it's free? But you can always donate to support this organization if you want. We do worry a little about the app's security practices, though, so unfortunately, it's not perfect.

Was könnte passieren, wenn etwas schiefgeht?

Anxiety Canada's Mindshift CBT app seems to take their users' privacy fairly seriously, which is nice. They do collect personal information like name, e-mail address, telephone, location, and information about your usage of MindShift. The do not share or sell this information for any targeted marketing or advertising purposes though, so yay! Unfortunately, as we have seen with other apps created by non-profit charitable organizations, we do have some concerns about their security practices. The app accepted the weak password "111111" when we logged in. We also were unable to confirm if and when they use encryption to protect users' data in transit and at rest and if they have a way to manage security vulnerabilities. Emails to the address mentioned in their privacy policy for these privacy related questions went unanswered.

It's great to see the organization take privacy seriously. And we understand that charitable organizations don't always have the same resources as bigger companies to focus on an app's security. Which stinks. Big companies tend to have way worse privacy practices and better security practices where charitable organizations seem to have the best privacy practices and not as strong security practices. We feel a little like Goldilocks out here looking for the rare that manages to do both well.

Tipps zu Ihrem Schutz

  • Use a strong password to protect the app when you set it up. The app will not prompt you to do so.
