ideas, innovations and apps for social work in the age of smartphones and social media
Disconnect.me is a service that helps you to use the internet in your own terms: faster, more private and more secure. Disconnect promises to make „the web a lot better“. According to disconnect…
Nowadays, the web is cluttered with advertising, analytics, and social widgets. These widgets slow down the pages you go to, send your personal info to tracking companies, and expose you to attackers.
Disconnect puts you in control of your data for faster, more private, more secure browsing. And unlike other filtering apps, Disconnect is optimized for speed. Pages use 17 percent less bandwidth and load 27 percent faster with Disconnect.
Disconnect was co-founded in 2011 by Brian Kennish, a former DoubleClick and Google engineer; and Casey Oppenheim, a consumer- and privacy-rights advocate and attorney. We develop award-winning and user-friendly privacy and security software in Palo Alto, California. Disconnect aspires to be an advocate for Internet users and to create enduring, positive change in the way your personal info is controlled online.
