CoinCap Introduces Privacy Mode

Privacy is important to us. We trust that it's important to you as well! That’s why we put time into developing an app that protects your privacy. From passcode protection to anonymously storing data, we often add features to ensure any information regarding your holdings is kept safe. Today we are happy to introduce a new CoinCap feature - Privacy Mode!

App analytics indicate that our users check CoinCap a lot. A WHOLE lot. Users may find themselves wanting to check altfolios in a place that makes them feel a little uneasy. Want to see your gains on the way to work, but don’t like checking on public transit? How about a quick peek at your Altfolio as you're waiting for a meeting to start? Or maybe you’re tired of your Uncle Roger trying to look over your shoulder as you check in after family dinner? We’ve been working on a solution for checking your Altfolio in a public place without showing the world (or Uncle Roger) how much you're holding.

Privacy Mode automatically hides the value of your assets when the app is opened. You don’t need to worry about whether or not you left the values showing last time; we’ll ensure it always opens with information hidden. It’s easy to see those values when you’re ready. All you need to do is tap the eye icon and all of your information is revealed. You also have the option of hiding the total value and checking each individual coin by tapping each coin individually. After a few seconds, the coin’s value will disappear once again.  

We understand that this feature isn’t for everyone, so we also made it easy to turn off privacy mode in the settings. 

Privacy Mode is currently available in the Apple App Store for iOS devices, and in the Google Play store for Android devices.
