We asked, you answered, and now it’s time to deliver! Firstly, we would like to thank you for all the feedback we received. We’ve found it to be very helpful, so much so that we’ve already started working on the cards you suggested!
This year we saw some of the largest data breaches ever! With the most recently affected company being Yahoo, whereby a 3-year-old security breach compromised over 1 billion user accounts, making it the biggest breach so far! In light of the data breaches and cyber attacks that marked 2016, we felt the need to close off this year and kick off 2017 on a high note. Hence, we present you with two brand spanking new cards, to Ellp you safeguard your privacy.
Here’s what’s in store for you this month:
When it’s time, perform a privacy cleanup.
Worried about having your PC and online activities at risk of being compromised? You’re not alone. Seeing as this happens to approximately 1 out of 5 people, it’s terribly concerning! With Ellp in the picture, however, there’s no to need to get your panties in a twist. You can safeguard your personal data without having to lift a finger. How? Simply select your preferred time, and switch the activation toggle on.

Smile and bring out those choppers, cause you can now enjoy browsing safely and secure both your online and offline worlds with this awesome Ellp card!
When my email is involved in a data breach, alert me.
It seems like not a day goes by without someone having to go through the ordeal of having one of their numerous online accounts (such as DropBox, Facebook, Tumblr etc…) in risk of being breached and compromised. The question on everyone’s mind is: How would you realize that one of your accounts has been involved in a data breach? Detecting this is very difficult, and sometimes the only way of knowing is if someone tells you about it. Besides the fact that it’s already very difficult to detect such breaches, constantly monitoring your accounts is also very time-consuming and just another daunting task. This is certainly yet another job for Ellp to take off your hands! Our new Ellp card will safely check all the accounts which are attributed to your given email for any breaches. Ellp will immediately alert you when any one of these accounts is at risk so that you can change your password and protect your personal information. This service is being provided through a safe and reliable system by our friends at HaveIBeenPwned.com.
We realize that Ellp is still a bit empty right now, but be patient! We promise you that we’re constantly striving to enhance and improve our product, with many more automation rules coming your way!
