Why BlockSurvey


“Privacy is not something that I’m merely entitled to, it’s an absolute prerequisite.” - Marlon Brando, Actor

In a horrendous and bizarre incident involving online surveys, around 6 million accounts were hacked from CashCrate – a site that facilitates users to take online surveys and get paid in return. This breach allowed hackers to have access to accounts that were created as early as 2006. The hacked data included – email addresses, passwords, physical addresses and names of users.

2018 - June 27, the day Spanish online survey firm – Typeform, realized that there was a security breach causing the firm to lose private survey data for tens of thousands of its customers using their platform. Hackers gained access to everything from personal details to email addresses and other private information that has put many survey participants at risk. Reddit, in particular, suffered heavy damage as personal details of its large-scale users survey were exposed.

All of the above data breach incidents point out to two important things –
  • Data breaches have been consistent and seem unstoppable
  • There is a steady decrease in the confidence and trust levels of the public when it comes to surveys, polls or sharing of information online

Scary isn’t it?
And quite unfair too. What with all the precious personal data thrown out in the open for anybody and everybody to access and misuse.

A survey conducted by the popular Harris Poll (2017) stated that ‘’Privacy’’ is the #1 priority for Americans with a whopping 82% of preferring a technology that protects their privacy. This begs the question –Are current survey tools safe enough? Sadly, they aren’t.
