Vuplex VR Browser saves the user's web browsing history privately on-device for the browsing history page. Importantly, this private browsing history is not transmitted or shared in any way and is only visible to the user. The browsing history can be deleted at any time by using the browsing history page.
Vuplex VR Browser does not save or track the text or audio that the user inputs through the browser.
Like all web browsers, Vuplex VR Browser sends and receives information over the internet on behalf of the user. Because of that, it's worthwhile to list some privacy aspects that are characteristic of most web browsers, including Vuplex VR Browser.
- When you access a website, that website has the ability to see what content you access and send on the site.
- Additionally, your internet service provider has the ability to see what websites you access.
- Ad networks frequently use technologies that attempt to identify and track the browser as it traverses across multiple sites.
There are two cases where Vuplex VR Browser sends network requests that aren't directly related to a website the user is accessing:
- Speech recognition: When the user presses the microphone button to dictate text, the app uses the operating system's built-in speech recognition capabilities. In the case of both Android and iOS, the speech recognition isn't computed on-device; instead, the operating system transmits the audio to a webservice operated by the company (Google and Apple, respectively), and then the dictation results are sent back to the device for the application to use.
- Google Analytics: Vuplex VR Browser uses Google Analytics to report when the app is started so that I can estimate the number of active devices with the app installed.
