Privacy and Safety of Typing programs

There are some programs which offer both free and paid verson, so are the paid version of such programs guaranteed safe?


Apparently not. The U.S. Federal Trade Commission continues to launch investigations into complaints about violations of the April 2000 Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act. The commission has recently levied large penalties against companies—from toy makers to video-app providers—that have covertly collected and shared personal information on children. Teachers must remain vigilant against these unacceptable invasions of our students’ privacy, not to mention the sanctity of our classrooms.

Hello, @rehaanhodge!

As with anything on the internet, you must consider your online privacy. If you find a typing program is free to use, you’re likely paying by offering up your data to the site. Typesy does not allow advertising on the platform, so you can be sure your activity is safe. No unwanted ads will be popping up while you work, and your data is kept secure and private. This is partly why Typesy offers free online games, but the full curriculum is a paid product.
