Easy control of your Privacy.

Overview

There’s a lot of you out there. Shouldn’t you get to decide who sees it? Now you can, with FigLeaf. Request beta access on FigLeaf official website and get a sneak peek of this innovative privacy solution.

It’s your data and we believe it should stay yours. That’s why there’s FigLeaf, the only all-in-one, completely secure app designed to put you in control of your privacy as you do the things you love online. Enjoy it for free. You decide what to keep private. You decide what to share. It’s privacy on your own terms and it includes all this:

Exposed Data Scan
Launch the app and FigLeaf gets right to work, looking for data leaks tied to your email address - on the internet and on the dark web. If your information is out there, FigLeaf will tell you about it and give you the power to tighten up your privacy.

Safe Logins
Signing up at a new site? Instead of using your real email, give them a masked email instead. If the site is ever part of a data breach, your real email won’t be. Safe Logins also creates hard-to-crack passwords and logs you in to your favorite sites automatically.

Masked Cards (Coming Soon)
Shopping online? Keep your credit card in your wallet and give them a Masked Card instead. Your real number stays private, keeping it out of the hands of hackers.

Secure Connection
Go online confidently with a private connection that hides your IP address and location, and gives you the privacy you need - wherever you’re connecting.

Anti-Tracker
Do what you love online without letting advertisers in on your online habits and interests. FigLeaf checks every site you visit for trackers and stops them in their tracks.


A note about your privacy
Your privacy is a big deal to us, so everything you do is encrypted on our servers and on your device. If we need access to your information to help you with a transaction, we need your explicit permission to do so. Without that permission and without your private key, we can’t decrypt your personal data. That means no one can see it. Not even us. It’s our Zero Knowledge Promise to you.

Thank you for the heads up. We are FigLeaf and we have an official Developer account. Actually, anyone can view our profile on MacUpdate, it's located here: https://www.macupdate.com/member/profile/fl-cs-team. For some reason, the link from the comments section doesn't work. We've already contacted MacUpdate support to resolve this.

Okay . . . so it was working with some minor flaws. A major flaw was the number of resources being used. Now, it crashes. I was very loyal to the development, but have seen nothing in months.

@Meister-Fritz,
Sorry for your trouble. We’re currently hard at work on our Windows beta app, so we don’t have any new Mac updates to share. Please check figleafapp.com soon for news on macOS availability.

I had a chat with the support for this app. They could not answer me about what the price would be when it comes out of beta. Also could not answer how my data was stored and what would happen to it if I decided I did not want to pay for the service (if it is indeed a service and not a scam, I suspect its a scam!! They told me that if I did not pay for it I could still access my data if I did not pay for the service. He told me I could not have the data deleted. Ya, I want my credit card information stored and not be able to delete it!! I for one and not even thinking of putting this on my Mac any of them. Got stung by Mackeeper and did not get one cent from the company from the lawsuit! And they still sell that crap!

- We don’t have pricing information to share right now. We’re focused on perfecting FigLeaf and we invite people to test and enjoy it for free while we’re in beta mode. The moment we have more information on our pricing, we’ll share it.

Also could not answer how my data was stored
- All data is encrypted and saved in the cloud for cross-device syncing and locally on your device for faster access. The information goes through a strong encryption process before being sent to our cloud servers. The encryption algorithm Xsalsa20 grabs the unique master password and Security Key from the computer, and uses them as a main key for encryption. As a result, every user has their info encrypted in a unique and uncrackable way. We do have access to this information on our servers, but we don't have a key to decrypt it. For us this remains useless — just a bunch of ones and zeros. That means no one knows your info but you.

what would happen to it if I decided I did not want to pay for the service ?
- You will have the same options to manage your data as you do now with FigLeaf beta. On macOS, you’ll find the Delete Account option under FigLeaf beta preferences. By deleting your account, all data associated with your FigLeaf account is deleted, including encrypted Safe Logins.

Ya, I want my credit card information stored and not be able to delete it!!
- FigLeaf beta does not store a user’s credit card information.

The app has nothing to do with privacy by design. You have to create a FigLeaf account to use the app. Why do I need a account for an app that was supposedly designed according to the "privacy by design" principle? Why does the app connect to google.com, Amazon ASW US and figleaf.com on start-up? You can scan your email address for leaks which can also be done via haveibeenpwned. There's also a password manager. There are no information provided about how my logins are stored. Just a "Zero-knowledge Guarantee". What does that mean for me? Are there any white papers or security audits? Where are my passwords stored? You can use a VPN that probably runs through the provider Keenow. How the provider handles my data is not explained. An anti-tracker that probably runs with the adguard filter list is also offered. You can use almost any other Adblocker instead. I do not trust the developers. The developers are close to Zeobit. Two years ago Zeobit had a data leak of over 13 million sensitive account details. Not to mention MacKeeper and the aggressive marketing strategies… Why should I trust them?

1. Why do I need a account for an app that was supposedly designed according to the "privacy by design" principle?
- You need to create an account to sync your FigLeaf preferences across all your devices. This way, you get the privacy control you need wherever you go online. We apply a "Privacy by Design" philosophy in everything we do. So when you create an account, your sensitive information is encrypted and only you can access and read it.

2. Why does the app connect to google.com, Amazon AWS US and figleaf.com on start-up?
- All our infrastructure is based on AWS. We use the Amazon Cognito service for authentication and for encrypted data storing. Each time you start the app, FigLeaf Beta sends a request to www.google.com to check if a stable internet connection has been established. Figleafapp.com is mainly used for account management, setting up VPN credentials, and storing encrypted data in the Safe Logins tool. We also send a request to get a logo of the websites you use FigLeaf with (except for the most popular email services). We read the logo as favicon. As soon as we release our own Knowledge Database, this process will be terminated.

3. There is no information provided about how my logins are stored.
- All data is encrypted and saved in the cloud for cross-device syncing and locally on your device for faster access. The information goes through a strong encryption process before being sent to our cloud servers. The encryption algorithm Xsalsa20 grabs the unique master password and Security Key from the computer, and uses them as a main key for encryption. As a result, every user has their info encrypted in a unique and uncrackable way. We do have access to this information on our servers, but we don't have a key to decrypt it. For us this remains useless — just a bunch of ones and zeros. That means no one knows your info but you.

4. Where are my passwords stored?
- All FigLeaf Beta account data is securely stored locally on your device and on our server for syncing between your other devices. And everything is encrypted using the Xsalsa20 algorithm. That means no one can access, read, or edit your data without your password and the Security Key that’s created for you during the registration process. And no one knows that info but you.

How can you trust a company, founded by ZEO founder (remember Mackeeper), to create a 'PRIVACY' app where in the past the founder violated all privacy rules you can imagine., who used all the tricks to scam macOS (and Windows) users?

Believe me, somehow they are taking the same path with this app, with the result that many duped and swindled users are left behind soon. I'll bet this is the same moneytron app soon.

I can only recommend to approach this app with suspicious eyes. Or even better, stay a way from it.

Yes, FigLeaf is founded by Slava Kolomeichuk and Yuriy Dvoinos who also founded ZEO Alliance, the parent company of MacKeeper. FigLeaf is its own company and the two entities do not share data of any sort. FigLeaf is solely focused on user privacy, and enables users to maintain complete control of their own information - not even FigLeaf can access it. FigLeaf’s “Privacy by Design” approach gathers only the information a consumer chooses to share, while our proprietary “zero-knowledge” solution architecture ensures only the individual consumer holds the key to their identity - and no outside party can access their personal information - not even FigLeaf. We are proud of our heritage and our founders' combined experience, which is what led to the creation of FigLeaf and our passion to make privacy a choice for all.

(Developer): "We are proud of our heritage and our founders' combined experience..."

That's scary. We in the Mac community who look after and help Mac users are not at all proud of the previous work created by ZEO Alliance. For example:

• The thousands of MacKeeper customers who joined the Yencha v. ZeoBIT class action lawsuit for fraud, which ZeoBIT lost in 2015.
• The 2015 exposure of 13 million Kromtech user account details posted in-the-clear on the Internet due to lack of web server security.
• The 2015 flaw in MacKeeper's URL handler that enabled maliciously coded web pages to fool victims into downloading and installing malicious bot malware that backdoored their Mac.
• Decades of consistent MacKeeper deceitful marketing tactics, including click-jacking, misdirection, invading popup windows, false claims, page hijacking, ad nauseam....

You're proud of that heritage.

Oh come on, you launch with a Mac version that does not even support Safari (yet)?! It's only the browser that about 55% of all Mac users use to access the web. Seriously, guys?!? Off to a weak start already. :( People are definitely not switching browsers for this so it's probably not going to take off before you get Safari compatibility going.

Glad to see the Safari extension out and giving it a try now. Looks okay so far but all the information about what they are doing and how they are doing it is pretty vague. Within the app as well as on the website. Like, what exactly is FigLeaf's "Secure Connection" and what does it do? Is it basically just another VPN and if so, does it slow the computer and/or the connection down? Is it something different, then what exactly is it?

Does anyone know by now or do you guys have any further information about the individual features?

Thanks for your comment. We’re currently in beta mode, so you can use FigLeaf for free with Chrome and Safari (Compatibility with Safari starts from version 0.9). Unfortunately, our extension is not compatible with Firefox yet, but we're working on it.
Basically, FigLeaf is an all-in-one app designed to help you take control of your privacy while you do the things you love online.
A short information about Figleaf features:
- Secure Connection encrypts all traffic between you and the website you’re visiting using secure VPN technology. FigLeaf uses the IKEv2 protocol for Mac OS X. It automatically connects to the closest server, in order to minimize loss of internet speed.
- With Exposed Data Scan you can find out if your personal information has been exposed in a data breach. If we find anything, you’ll know when the information was published and the source of the leak.
- Safe Logins lets you use an alternate email address instead of your real one when signing up at new sites. All emails sent to your FigLeaf address are forwarded from our secure servers to your real address. If the site you signed up at is ever compromised, your real email won’t be part of the data breach. Using Safe Logins is simple. When you sign up or register somewhere new, FigLeaf will ask you if you want to use a masked address instead. Also, Safe Logins keeps track of your usernames and passwords, so when you visit your favorite site, you can log in automatically without having to remember your password.
- Anti-tracker. If FigLeaf detects a tracker script, it will automatically block it. FigLeaf also keeps track of how many trackers have been blocked.

If there’s anything else you need, get in touch.

So I've been trying out the FigLeaf Beta 0.9 for the last few days in my iMac 5K and as much as I like the idea and the features it was actually the first time ever that I heard my iMac's fans get to work. For some reason FL takes a huge toll on the CPU and I had to shut it down. Probably won't use it again before there's a solution for this.

Thanks for sharing your feedback. We’re glad to hear that you like the idea of FigLeaf. We are investigating this case. We know this isn’t ideal, but again, we’re in beta mode. We hope you'll continue to enjoy the FigLeaf beta app. Thanks again for your feedback.

As I mentioned, the developers did get out a Safari extension and I'm certain that you'll see Firefox in the future. As this develops, you will see improvements and they will be timely. This group of developers had many, many interviews with potential users and those were not cursory. Each interview was a minimum of one hour and that same user was interviewed a few more times. The developers were seeking user input. I know these people and they are a very committed group.
