EDIT: It's all good folks 🎉 c.f comment from Maxime 👇🏻 When dealing with this kind of critical data, I'm expecting to have an app that is taking my privacy seriously without selling it. I'm sure this is more nuanced than what we can read, but for now it's a big red flag for me https://www.notion.so/jour/Forwa...

Pros:

The product looks really great! Love the design too ❤️

Cons:

EDIT: The privacy policy doesn't reflect the reality of the product. Please update it 🙏🏻

That privacy policy says nothing about using your journal data... Their medium post says: Privacy by design 🔒 But no one — including anyone on our team — will ever have access to the contents of your journal. Encrypted with your own passphrase, your entries are for your eyes only, always. We’ve worked hard to ensure it.

@antoineplu hey Antoine thank you for your feedback! We actually agree and take privacy very seriously. This is why we encrypt all entries in Jour. As they are signing up, all Jour users set both a password and a passphrase, which encrypts journal entries and is stored only locally on the user's device. The passphrase decrypts entries for the journalers' eyes only as the entries are returned from our server. This ensures that no one - not even a member of our team - will have access to any of our users' journals. We're working on precise terms of services and a legally binding privacy policy to explain this in detail. But we can guarantee that we do not now sell any user data, nor do we have any intention to do so in the future.

I digging the clean design. I'm a big fan of writing but never got into a journaling habit. Not sure it's for everyone but curious if there are any studies show the benefits (or if this varies case by case).

@rrhoover There is a good piece done by Rochester University, I've been doing it for about a year in a physical notebook, it does help to put your day to day into perspective https://www.urmc.rochester.edu/e...
