What do people think of Fin?
I find that the offer they give us hunters is the best way to use Fin. I used it when It had a monthly rate and loved it and love it now, but I save a lot of money because I don't request often but when I do it really helps. Don't know why so many detractors.
**Does Fin share the Information it collects with other People?**
Yes. As a general rule, Fin shares the Information it collects and learns from you with other People, including People who do not use Fin. This includes Information Fin collects and learns from your Communications and Conversations (including the things you ask Fin to do), as well as any Information Fin collects and learns from your address book, calendar, and email account (including Contact Information). Fin may also share the fact that you use Fin with other people.
If Fin shares something it collects from you, Fin will not identify you by name as the source of that Information unless you give Fin permission to do so (either through this Data Policy or otherwise). You give Fin permission to identify you as the source of any Information shared with your starred or trusted connections. You also give Fin permission to identify you as the source of any Information you share publicly using Fin.
If you want to share Information with Fin, but do not want Fin to share that Information with anyone else, you should place it in the Fin Vault.
Fin does not sell your personally identifiable information to advertisers. Fin will also not share the transcript of any emails it collects from accessing your email account.
**Does Fin delete any Information it collects?**
No. Because Fin is a collective knowledge system, Fin retains all of the Information it collects and learns, including Information it collects and learns from you.
If you want to share Information with Fin, but want to be able to delete it later, you should place it in the Fin Vault.
I've been using the product very actively for about a year now. I'm a terrible edge case customer: multi-time zone, foreign language addresses, weird scheduling requirements (sun-thur for in person, mon-wed for calls, etc), and other oddities.
While no service is perfect ... and certainly no remote/virtual assistant is ... whats been awesome is seeing how much Sam and Andrew listen to customers, improve the app, and make the service work better.
Its hard to imagine not using the service now.
Super easy to use and great for offloading tasks so I can focus on the present / what's in front of me. Mostly use it for reservations, contacting people I don't want to be on the phone with (postal service, airlines, etc.), shopping, etc.
--> Fin will spam your contacts. Don't do that to your friends or colleagues.
Fin spammed me, because I happen to have friends who have Fin accounts. They say they take CAN-SPAM "very seriously" and they have permission, but they don't. I never gave them permission.
When I pointed this out, the CEO admitted they run filters on their existing users and send automatic, unsolicted emails to their users' contacts. This is unaccaptable and gross.
Worse yet, he even admitted that inviting people who don't want the service would be a negative. But they are doing it anyway. In the original email, it suggested reaching out to the legal team if you had questions. They never answered.
