Almost four years ago we started Human with the crazy idea to turn your phone into a friendly all-day activity tracker. Today we're excited to announce that Human is joining Mapbox.
We started Human to help people enjoy everyday activity. We created an environment that inspires people to be more active and use anonymized data to learn about our cities. We believe that data is a vital ingredient in making our environment more movement friendly.
We're proud to join the open source company Mapbox to help them change the way people move around cities and understand our planet. Under the wings of Mapbox, Human will continue to operate as a stand-alone app to track your activity.
Mapbox holds very high standards in privacy & security. While being part of Mapbox, we'll continue to protect your privacy and will never share personal identifiable data without your explicit consent. Just like before, we'll only use aggregated anonymous data to learn about activity and cities around the world. Anonymous data from Human and thousands of other apps is used to improve OpenStreetMap and create a real-time map of our world.
We're excited to join the Mapbox team of 175 very talented people and work together on amazing products that can make a positive impact on our lives. The culture and mission of Mapbox is so well-aligned with what we believe in.
Thanks for your support on the first leg of this amazing journey.
Please feel free to reach out with any questions or concerns.
