A note from our CEO, Jeff Bermant:
Finding new ways for win-wins is what my business career has always been about. A couple of years ago my son said to me, “Dad, do you realize your data has value? And guess what? You are not earning a single penny!” It dawned on me, not only was I not being paid for my data, but millions or should I say billions of people were being left out. With a little research, I was astounded at how much money companies are making off your data. For years, browsers and search engines have been collecting your data making billions of dollars selling it. So, with so many people being left out, I thought we should do something.
I believe that since it is your data, you deserve to get paid. So that is why I created MyData Rewards™ from Cocoon. Now you can decide, whether to cash in on the sale of your anonymized data or keep that data completely private.
Cocoon is proud of its legacy, as for over eight years we have been providing privacy and security to users around the world. Now we are changing the Internet once again, this time allowing users to easily earn cash by sharing their data anonymously.
Finally, our company’s commitment is to you, our users. We appreciate you trying our browsers, and we are committed to improve your experience and increase your ability to profit from your browsing. I’m proud to say, we are a data company who is all about earning money FOR the user, NOT FROM the user.
