There's got to be a better way
When smart speakers became a regular household item in 2016, our founder, Dave Nickel, wanted to join in this technological revolution. As a lover of all things technology, he saw the benefits of how these devices could make our lives easier, but was concerned when he learned the way they work is to perpetually listen and track our activities in order to better serve us. In 2019 as more and more news stories came out about these devices recording private conversations, accidentally placing orders, and falsely activating throughout the day, he decided to do something about it. That's when Pozio was born.
Our devices come with privacy settings, and there are countless third-party security apps you can use to try to protect your data, but Dave thought there has got to be a better way to protect our privacy while still using the devices we love. He gathered a team of cybersecurity experts, industrial designers, sound engineers, and more to create a device that would block your device from hearing you at the source, your mic.
Pozio now has a suite of devices to protect your smartphones and smart speakers, and this is just the beginning. We're actively working to create other products to better protect your personal data. Follow us on social media and join our newsletter to follow us on this journey of making technology safer.
Provide trusted, arms-length control over devices that are perpetually listening or watching our daily activities.
Pozio allows people to embrace smart technology while providing greater control over their privacy. We do this by providing a suite of secure, seamless products and services that allow you to use your smart devices as intended while providing peace of mind that your activities are not being continuously monitored.
