Where can I find it?
The Dashboard is the first page you will see when you open your app. From your Managers, it is accessible from the navbar. The Dashboard is symbolized by OI.
To access the Dashboard from your Managers:
- Tap on the “OI” logo
The first time you open your Dashboard, you won’t see any relevant information. This is normal. The Dashboard works in the background aggregating information and will start showing interesting information as soon as you start browsing and using our tool.

The Dashboard's video and cards
The introductory video
Privowny App uses 2 powerful tools/features (Privowny Autofill and the Safari extension) to allow users to register and log in to apps and websites. Because of the way Apple's operating system works, these features have a few limitations. In order to explain how to get the best of them and know the few culprits linked to their misuse, an introductory video is available in the Dashboard so first time users can get the help they need right away. Users can remove the video from the Dashboard by clicking on the cross and find it again in the video gallery of the Getting started section.
The setup cards
In order to give its best, your app needs you to set it up so Privowny Autofill and the Safari extension are operational. If you haven't fully completed the setup of your app right after installing it as prompted, then the top part of the Dashboard will display cards that are shortcuts to go and finish the setup. Being able to finish the setup from here as well as from the Settings serves as a reminder that the app is not fully operational yet, which is necessary to take advantage of all the apps' functionalities.
The "Get to know your app" card
A card allowing you to quickly access the "Getting started" section of the app is also displayed on the Dashboard and will remain there until you tap on the cross. Don't forget that you can always access this section of the app by tapping on the rocket icon (top right corner of the header). this section includes interactive tutorials and all our "how to" videos.
Understanding the Dashboard statistics
The Dashboard gathers information about your digital footprint and shows you a recap of your online behavior and how it impacts your privacy and the personal data you leave behind.
The Dashboard uses the data collected by the Privowny App Browser Extension (on your Chrome or Firefox desktop browser). If you choose NOT to let us collect the data you leave behind at the same time websites do or don’t use the Privowny App Browser Extension on your computer, then these graphs will be empty.
You can selectively manage the data collected from the Privowny Toolbar or the Main Menu on your desktop browser.
From the first day you use Privowny App, and only if you wish us to do so, we will keep track of the data you share online, aggregate the numbers, and present them in a graph on your Dashboard.
It can be interesting to see the kind of data you left behind. We decided to cherry-pick the most sensitive ones (email addresses, phone numbers, passwords, and credit card numbers) and let you know with one look how many of them are out there. These are the pieces of sensitive data you entrusted companies with (you chose to share these at some point).
One of the ways the internet profiles you is by aggregating information about your browsing activities: sites you visit, searches you perform, etc. The Dashboard does the same thing but for your benefit. You can now have an insider’s look at the way you are portrayed online. It might take a couple of days before you start seeing keywords gathering. Keep on browsing and come back later!
