Research shows prayer has modest mental health benefits., which bills itself as the "#1 app for Christians," aims to help users "develop a daily habit with Jesus." For $7.99 a month, users get access to things like custom daily prayers, bedtime Bible stories, James Earl Jones reading the Bible, and daily meditations. Unfortunately, it seems users have to give up a good bit of their privacy when they start their daily prayer journey on We won't mince words -- has shown absolutely terrible privacy and security practices. We're not sure that has any mental health benefits.

Co się może stać, jeśli coś pójdzie nie tak?

If you use, you'd better pray for your privacy. Because is absolutely awful when it comes to their users' privacy and security. They collect a ton of personal, app usage, and location information. They say they can buy data from third parties like data brokers to add to the data profile they build on you -- information like gender, age, religious affiliation, ethnicity, marital status, household size and income, political party. then says they can use all this data to target you with ads, share with third parties to target you with ads, and share with other "faith-based organizations" so they can target you too.

There's more! They say they can publish your name, voice, and likeness and other personal information for advertising, marketing, publicity and promotional activities, as well as for any other commercial purpose. If you give them your phone number, they say you've now given them express written consent to receive promotional, marketing, and/or informational text messages and/or phone calls from us and other faith-based organization.

We don't mean to be, well, mean, but really feels like it might be a data harvesting business targeting Christians for purposes that go way way way beyond helping them on their prayer journey. It seems they aim to collect as much data on you as they can, share that data with many, many third parties to market more products, target more ads, and make money with your personal information as a business asset. It all feels kinda icky to us.

And if anyone can explain to us why the app needs access to your phone's flashlight, well, we'd love to be shown the light.

What could happen if something goes wrong? Well, back in 2020 Threat Post reported leaked the personal information of nearly 10 million users. Personal information like name, church-donation information, photos, and users’ contact lists. To make matters worse, ThreatPost found that didn't secure their users' leaked personal information even after they were made aware of the problem. "The database was discovered on Oct. 6, but it wasn’t made private despite multiple attempts to contact about the problem, according to vpnMentor. After the researchers contacted Amazon directly, the contact files were removed from the open bucket on Nov. 17." This is so, so, so bad. absolutely comes with *Privacy Not Included. Please be very careful if you chose to use this app. We don't recommend you do.
