About Privacy Pros
Privacy Is Our Mission
At Privacy Pros, we believe that privacy is a right we must all protect on our own.
But that doesn’t mean you need to do it alone. That’s why Bryan and Colin Aulds created Privacy Pros.
Why Listen to Us?
If you have been interested in Bitcoin at all the past few years, you’ve probably heard of our product, the Billfodl. If you haven’t, it is a product designed to keep your Bitcoin ‘private keys’ (which are basically very long passwords) safe from all sorts of threats. My brother Colin and I became so obsessed with this project that we became experts in it.
As it turns out (and we’ll be covering this more in the coming days), Bitcoin is not the only technology that uses private keys to keep digital data safe and secure. There are all sorts of technologies you use every day that depend on them (your email and your internet connection are good examples).
But private keys and encryption are still such a small piece of the puzzle.
Cyber-Security Is a Big World
As we developed a group of loyal and enthusiastic customers, we found that many of them had questions about what else they could do to keep their Bitcoin safe. But many were worried about much more than just their Bitcoin.
They wanted to:
- Identify and avoid scams
- Remain completely anonymous when buying a house or a car
- Protect their kids from predators online
- Find the name and address of their stalker
- Monitor their home wifi network for free-riders
- Secure their online accounts
- Send money to someone living under a dictatorial government
- Wipe their personal information from the internet
- And many more...
In short, our customers are just a few of the many people who are realizing that we each have an identity online, and often that identity can be used to harm us.
Answering the Questions
Sometimes we knew how to help the people who reached out to us. Sometimes we didn’t.
Over time, we either became the expert or we had one on speed dial for more or less any question you might have about cyber-security.
But more importantly, we knew how to explain these concepts so that anyone could understand how to take action and improve their online security.
That is when we stopped being Billfodl and we started being Privacy Pros.
Bryan and Colin are the creators of Billfodl wallet and the founders of Privacy Pros. They are both hosts on The Unhashed Podcast.
