Earning & Wallet
How do I earn with Killi?
Can you make money from your data? Absolutely!
There are currently four ways to earn with Killi: data sharing, surveys, offers, and watching videos (on Android ONLY). We are always working on creating even more ways for you to earn in the near future.
How do I earn from videos?
Video ads. No matter where you browse, chances are, you come across them. But are you earning from them? Probably not. We are changing that (within Killi at least). Simply watch a video ad and earn money. You can watch as many or as little as you want. Exciting! Please note, this is currently only available on Android devices.
How do I earn from data sharing?
When setting up your profile, you can enable data sharing for anything you add. This includes your: date of birth, email address, gender, location, phone number, postal code, and country.
Change your mind about what you want to share? No problem, you can turn your sharing on or off at any time.
How do I earn from surveys?
You can earn money by completing surveys that help brands understand you better. Some surveys may ask you screening questions first to ensure you qualify as the right audience for the full survey. This helps ensure you are a good match (which also saves you from irrelevant surveys). This does mean, however, that you won’t qualify for EVERY survey. Don’t worry, there are always plenty!
How long do surveys take?
The length of the survey varies. Some surveys take a couple minutes, while others take a bit longer. It’s totally up to you when it comes to how long you want to spend in the app. A few minutes can earn you some cash!
Privacy & Protection
What is personal data?
Personal data is anything that can be used to identify who you are (so people know you aren’t a robot). This includes: name, date of birth, email, phone, etc.
What is consumer data?
Consumer data is generated from your day-to-day actions and your behavior as a consumer. This data typically comes from your devices (mainly mobile devices) which have great tracking abilities. Apps and websites that are open on your phone track your usage, including browsing habits, frequently visited locations, where you eat, shop and entertain, and a whole lot more. Between location service and browsing habits, a consumer profile is formed. As you continue to have an active presence online, this data is always increasing. What’s that mean? It’s unlimited.
What happens with all this data?
This type of data is hugely valuable to companies who want to understand what interests you because they want to deliver, well, something you will be interested in! In a way, this is good because the online ads you see are more relevant to what you actually like.
Currently, the data collected from you is sold in many marketplaces for profit without a cent going to your name (yikes). This status quo is what Killi is breaking.
Who controls my data?
Simple – you!
You and only you control the data you share and transact on Killi. If you choose to stop sharing something, it will no longer be available for buying. If you delete the app, all profile data and history will be deleted (except for surveys you were paid for).
How is my data protected?
The security of your data is the most important thing to us. We work to ensure compliance with applicable regulations and laws.
In terms of your physical account, you can only access it via a password you create. Without this password your account cannot be accessed. We’re working tirelessly to secure your data as technologies change at dizzying speeds. Seriously, our relationship with sleep is not a stable one!
Why am I asked to answer a bunch of questions about myself?
Simple – the more we know about you, the better we can make your experience! Answering these questions allows us to better funnel RELEVANT surveys and offers for you. While you may notice less surveys, your chances of qualifying will increase.
In the past, users had trouble qualifying for surveys which in turn meant not making money. Yeah, that didn’t fly with us. The take survey helps us personalize your experience so you get content that is ACTUALLY meant for you. No more spending all your time trying to qualify!
I had a balance and now it’s gone, where is it?
After creating a password, you may notice your account revert to 0. No worries, your earnings aren’t gone forever, we just need to further verify you are in fact YOU! If your balance is missing, you will see a box at the top asking you to link your phone number. Simply enter the phone number associated with your Killi account and your balance will appear. Still don’t see it? Refresh the page (pull down the screen).
Why do I need a password to login to my Killi account now?
We see Killi as a lot more than a mobile app, so we have expanded to the web. Previously, you only required your phone number to log in for Killi. While this is fine and dandy for mobile, it won’t work for Killi on a web browser. The password login will allow you to log into your Killi account from whatever device you would like! How else can a password help? In the past, when you switched to a new device or did a factory reset, your account and any balance would not transfer over. The password login eliminates this issue. If you get a new device, or factory reset your current device, your account and the balance will remain intact.
Why was I kicked out of my Killi account when I opened the app?
Did you open your Killi app only to be greeted with a login screen? Don’t worry, your account isn’t gone! Due to the shift to a password-based login system, we need every user to create a password and login with it. If you are an existing user, you would select ‘Log into your Killi account’ and follow the instructions from there!
Why do I have to wait 30 days to redeem my funds?
Waiting. It sucks. We know. So why do we make you wait 30 days? This gives us enough time to verify that you are in fact a human and utilizing the app appropriately. While waiting 30 days may seem difficult, imagine how great it’s going to be when you redeem ALL the money you’ve earned in your first month!
How do I earn via my location services?
What better way to earn money than to sit back and watch it accumulate?
To earn money from your location services, you would simply have to enable them on your device and ensure you have them turned on for Killi. This gives you another opportunity to earn monthly as long as you keep your location services turned on. It really is THAT easy.
Do I need to have my location services for Killi on all the time?
Yes. Your location must be on at all times. While this is not neccessary to use the Killi app, it is encouraged it you want to earn more.
How long do I have to have my location services on for in order to earn more?
While there is no set amount of time you have to have your location services on for, the amount you can earn depends on the duration. In sum, the longer you have this feature turned on, the more you can earn!
Why didn’t I get my dividend this month?
Unfortunately you did not meet the min requirements of location sharing. Don’t worry though, we do this every month so share and you will get the next dividend.
How is the amount I receive calculated?
Ah, math. Maybe not everyones favourite subject, but we are going to go ahead and use some here. We believe in profit sharing hence why we decided not to keep everything for ourselves. 50% goes to the Killi users and 50% goes to us!
Do I have to complete EVERY question on my profile?
In order to earn your one time $1 reward and to receive surveys/offers that are best suited to you, you must fully complete your profile. However, don’t fear, we won’t take up too much of your time. It takes approx. 5 minutes to complete.
I’m not qualifying for surveys/offers? How can I improve my ability to qualify?
Not qualifying for surveys is a bummer and after receiving countless messages from our users stating they weren’t qualifying, we HAD to take action.
There is a short questionnaire comprised of basic questions about yourself which will help you better improve your ability to qualify for surveys/offers. How? By answering questions about yourself, we can weed out irrelevant surveys that don’t suit you and only present the ones that are tailored to you.
What is Killi?
In its current form, Killi is a mobile consumer app that allows users to get paid for their data while simultaneously protecting it. Killi contains two crucial functions – an open marketplace (where personal and consumer data is exchanged for money) and a secured locker (where your data and money are protected).
The ultimate vision of Killi is to empower users to take back 100% control of their consumer data so that companies who want access must pay Killi users for their data instead of buying it from elsewhere that doesn’t profit users. While the app is Step 1, we will be expanding into other areas where your data is leaking.
TL;DR – Killi helps keep your data safe and puts money in your pocket. How’s that for a win-win?
Is Killi safe?
100%! Your data is completely safe with Killi. Your information is kept on your device and cannot be accessed by external sources. When you choose to share and sell your data, the transaction is done directly between you and the company.
What countries does Killi support?
Currently, we support the US, Canada, Singapore, and Australia. We are looking to expand to a plethora of other places in the near future. Stay tuned!
