Read our review from 2022:
What's would happen if something goes wrong with Moodfit? Well, you could use a terrible password to protect all the sensitive, personal information Moodfit can collect. Your 10-year old could easily guess your terrible password and learn you have huge anxiety they'll grow up to be an Instagram influencer. This results in your 10-year old only dreaming of becoming an Instagram influencer. No one wants that. Use a strong password people!
Tips to protect yourself
- Do not log in using third-party accounts
- Do not connect to any third party via the app, or at least make sure that a third party employs decent privacy practices
- Do not give consent for sharing of personal data for marketing and advertisement.
- Choose a strong password! You may use a password control tool like 1Password, KeePass etc - Do not use social media plug-ins.
- Use your device privacy controls to limit access to your personal information via app (do not give access to your camera, microphone, images, location unless neccessary)
- Keep your app regularly updated - Limit ad tracking via your device (e.g. on iPhone go to Privacy -> Advertising -> Limit ad tracking) and biggest ad networks (for Google, go to Google account and turn off ad personalization)
- Request your data be deleted once you stop using the app. Simply deleting an app from your device usually does not erase your personal data.
- When starting a sign-up, do not agree to tracking of your data if possible.
