Killi Launches Data Unveil

Do you know what information the internet has on you? Because Killi can show you…

Every single adult on the internet has a digital profile. You included. And you add to it every time you’re online, whether you’re browsing on your computer or using apps on your phone. Companies are constantly building and updating your profile, including your name, age, interests, shopping history, and addresses.

But it doesn’t stop there. Your profile can include how many people live in your house, how old your children are, what you watch online, how often you eat at restaurants, and even where you like to go to happy hour! 

Want to see your digital profile?

For the first time ever, you can! Killi’s Data Unveil allows you to both view your digital profile and edit it. You are able to modify traits about yourself, your interests, and your buying habits. Killi is the only place on the planet where you can view and correct your personal data, just by sharing your email address.

I’m excited! Where can I find this? 

For New Killi Users

For new users, join Killi (available in Web, iOS, or Android), to see what personal information of yours is being stored by the Internet. If we weren’t able to find data on you or if the data we did find is incorrect feel free to correct it. This is your unique chance to rewrite (and re-right) your data!  

Even better? After you’ve done this, you will be part of Killi’s Profile Rewards and be automatically set up to passively earn Killi Points every week by opting in to share your information with us. 

For Existing Killi users 

For existing users, this new Data Unveil feature currently isn’t available, but we are working hard to launch this in the coming weeks. 

Now What? 

Welcome to the #DataRevolution! Take back control. Reclaim your data. 

Join Killi to see it, edit it, and earn from it.

Women in Data Privacy

Happy International Women’s Day! 

We at Killi celebrate all the strong, intelligent, bright, curious, powerful, loving, fierce, proficient women in our lives and in the Tech community that ask the hard questions and work every single day to make this world a better place. While we are proud of having a wonderfully diverse team, we also want to acknowledge the societal disparities women face every single day. Did you know there is a significant “gender gap” when it comes to digital privacy? While women have greater concerns than men about digital privacy, research shows that they also have less awareness of the potential threats posed by technology, data, and interface design. 

This isn’t so surprising, when you learn that only 23% of employees at Facebook, Apple, and Google are women, while decision-making processes in technology and digital policy are still dominated by men. Work in tech companies is highly sex segregated, with men dominating engineering of products and women heavily represented in legal, safety, and customer care roles.

Given that women disproportionately face fetishization, harassment, and threats of violence online, this lack of representation in the technology sector and relevant decision-making processes is significant. It is only by involving women in policy discussions that these issues can be better tackled. We need to increase the input women have on the design of technology and the policies that affect our online lives as risks encountered primarily by women are often left unconsidered. 

This imbalance combined with pressures of external bias from peers, friends, and family, creates a vicious cycle where women become less digitally literate and aware of the risks they encounter online. As a result, women’s ability to take adequate measures or demand that companies improve their products is compromised.

A clear example of this disparity can be seen with VPN use. VPNs are a key tool for improving privacy and security online, as they encrypt a user’s data, making it unreadable to their ISP and anyone spying on their network. In 2018, Global Web Index reported that only 32% of VPN users were women.

Forbes also reported in 2016 that, while women are more likely to make changes in behavior to protect their privacy, men are more likely to use encrypted email (10% vs. 7%), password managers (20% vs. 17%), privacy-enhancing browsers (18% vs. 13%), and two-factor authentication (15% vs. 12%).

These statistics show that women are less likely to use tools to safeguard their data, leaving them more at risk than men when going online.

It’s important that women become more aware of the tools they can use to protect their data, but also critical that they be involved in design and decision making.

Women (50% of the population) need to become part of the data privacy conversation. Not only will this be a proper representation of society, but this will strengthen laws and online safety for everyone.

Killi knows that Digital privacy is a feminist issue. The team at Killi is working hard to bring attention to the lack of diversity in the tech and data privacy industry and bridge that gap. Highlighting these issues on our blog is just one of the many steps we’re taking to detail out the fundamental disparities and propel meaningful conversations to shift and re-shape the industry to be more inclusive.

Introducing Killi Points

A BIG change is happening this week. Your Killi balance will be converting to Killi points! Not to worry – we promise the end result will be exactly the same. 

The conversion 

$1.00 = 100 points 

For an easy way to convert, just take out the $ sign and the decimal point! 

  • $0.01 = 1 Killi Point 
  • $0.25 = 25 Killi Points 
  • $1.00 = 100 Killi Points 
  • $3.00 = 300 Killi Points 

Earning & Payout

The payout for everything (Killi Paycheck, Killi Polls, etc.) will remain the same. 

If you are in the Elite tier of Killi Paycheck ($3.00 per month), you will earn 300 Killi Points per month (75 Killi points per week). 

If you complete our daily Killi Polls ($0.01 per day), you will earn 1 Killi point per day. 

Redemption

The minimum balance for redemption will remain the same. Previously, this was $5, and now with Killi Points will be 500 points. 

Your 500 points will be converted into dollar value ($5.00) and you will be asked how you would like to redeem (Amazon gift card, e-gift card, or charity donation).

Killi Revamps Refer-a-Friend Program

More points for you and your friends! We revamped our Refer-A-Friend (RAF)program! For each friend you refer (max 5 friends), earn a 100 point referral bonus AND 10% of their Killi Paycheck earnings.  WAIT – it gets even better.
