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 smartphones and speakers 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.
While smartphones and apps come with privacy settings, and there are countless third-party security apps you can use to try to protect your data, David 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.
We need to take back control of how big data access and uses our personal data to their benefit. If you want to stay informed as the privacy landscape is changing, follow us on social media and sign up for our newsletter to join us on this journey of protecting your privacy.
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.
