Gate Guardian: Building tools & services to protect your privacy
Gate Guardian is a working project with an aim to build products and services that will help protect people’s privacy. So what is privacy and why does it matter?
Your privacy is a right
In 1948, the United Nations declared privacy as a fundamental human right.
“No one shall be subjected to arbitrary interference with his privacy, family, home or correspondence, nor to attacks upon his honour and reputation. Everyone has the right to the protection of the law against such interference or attacks.”
United Nations Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) 1948, Article 12.
Privacy helps us establish boundaries to limit who has access to our bodies, places and things, as well as our communications and our information.
Our Smartphones are under attack
As we become more dependent on technology we leave ourselves vulnerable and open to attack. Our mobiles know so much about us; where we are, what we see, what we like. We have unknowingly allowed third parties to invade our privacy, peer into our mobile lives, harvest, siphon and sell our personal and valuable data to the highest bidder.
Would you let a stranger into your home? Would you then allow that stranger to go through your belongings? Well, that’s exactly what these third party trackers are doing at mass scale on your devices. That’s why we believe this is wrong.
Your privacy matters
Founded in 2018 by Prakash Jessani, Gate Guardian is committed to helping protect and safeguard your devices from an invasion of privacy. To protect you from those who wish to track you and make money from your personal information.
