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.

what is in 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’m not a journaling person—could never get into it. But enjoying my first few days with Jour. Just the right amount of guidance to get me engaged each day.

Pros:

Simple, elegant, with solid thought provoking daily questions

Cons:

None so far

I've tried many journaling apps from Stoic to 5 Minute Journal, but Jour really takes the best parts of all and gets rid of all the unnecessary stuff for a truly elegant, calm and guided experience. My favourite part is that the app really asks new and surprising questions every day that make me think and remember things, either putting an unexpected smile on my face or making me feel grateful. Isn't that what these journaling apps supposed to help us with at the end of the day? ;) Well done!
