Hi PH! 👋 So excited to be launching something again! 🚀 Meet Guard, an 🧠 Artificial Intelligence that reads privacy policies for you and warns you of the biggest privacy threats in the digital services you use. 🤓 This is actually the basis of my thesis on AI and Natural Language Processing (NLP), and it's been super fun to work on this problem with such an interesting technology. For the moment Guard is a website that spits out some of the AI results in a simple, organized and visual way. It also includes some other relevant information such as recent data breaches and instructions to delete your accounts and data on those services. But I'd love to hear your feedback on what should this project become next! 💻 Actually, I've been working on a spinoff: an app that helps you protect your digital privacy. It's like an antivirus, but for privacy threats instead of viruses. This is only a rough prototype right now, but I'd also love to hear your thoughts on it! https://useguard.com/blog/future/ Also happy to answer any Qs about the tech behind this! :)
@rameerez While opening on my corporate network. I get error like it has malware HTML-genA
Wow, congratulation on the launch, inspiring product! Curious on how the scores adapt if the privacy policy changes? Will it then be scored based on the trained AI - which at best is already generalised enough?
@ludwig_stumpp Thank you! These are my plans for when a privacy policy changes: Guard should automatically fetch it, re-analyze it and re-calculate the score based on the new input. This should be a rather simple process, provided the AI already knows how to analyze new unseen input. Measuring under/overfitting and aiming for correct generalization is something I'm doing for the thesis so hopefully this automatic process will work with good precision!
Looks great! I think you should add the fact about Tinder on here so people are aware.
@petecodes Good tip, just added! Thank you Pete!
Hi @rameerez your product sounds great but I think your SSL certificate is invalid as I can’t access your site. Thought I’d let you know.
@tjthomsonjones That's weird, looks good on my side and no one has reported this... would you mind sharing more details on the error you're getting?
@rameerez On Chrome it displays the message: This site can’t provide a secure connection useguard.com sent an invalid response. ERR_SSL_PROTOCOL_ERROR Let me know if that helps.
@tjthomsonjones Thanks for the details! Could you please try opening the website on another device like your smartphone and checking if it works there? From what I'm reading, this error might actually be related to your device not having the correct time and date set up – let's see if switching devices solves the issue to rule out a server SSL misconfig issue. Also, if anyone else encounters the same error, please let me know!
@rameerez I just tried in another browser and on an iPad and the problem persists. Have you checked the SSL certificate of the site for EU countries?
@tjthomsonjones Yes, I've tested the site on multiple computers in multiple countries (at least a couple dozen different people from around the world). I myself live in the EU. Plus, the SSL cert is issued by LetsEncrypt which is one of the most widely used and accepted providers as far as I'm concerned. And I've just checked and everything looks fine and updated. One thing that happened with one person, though, was that their business firewall was blocking the website because apparently the same IP or domain I'm using had been flagged years ago by some antivirus software – and if I recall correctly the error msg was similar to that of an SSL error. I contacted the antivirus company and they lifted the ban, but might it be that something similar is happening in your network? Can you maybe try using your smartphone with mobile data, not wifi, and see if the error persists?
Great job! Possible to make it into a chrome extension and flag to the user should the privacy policy on a website have a very poor grade?
