It all started when our founder, Ash Sobhe, was 12 years old, a hacker and a freedom-fighter trapped in Iran, yearning for true liberty without prosecution.
Sobhe realized that social media, no longer limited to early adopters and now a mainstream cultural sensation, has seen a substantial increase in accessible data. Our comprehension of individuals’ decision-making patterns and ability to influence them had reached unparalleled heights.
Smartphones became more widely used in 2010. Personal data had been more accessible to corporations and other entities. Analyzing people’s daily activities, including their emotional state, circle of friends, allowed for a better understanding of behavior and new opportunities to influence choices. At first, Sobhe was excited about the potential of such expansion.
The industry was no longer the same innocent one that started in the 1990s and the data was not always being used to “improve” a customer’s journey, but to influence them to do what invisible hands wanted them to do. It was time to fight for good again. We had to pivot.
Our CEO, Ash Sobhe, was named Top 40 Entrepreneurs Under the age of 40 by California Legislative Assembly. He also received a recognition from the US Congress. He delivered a TEDx Talk at California State Polytechnic University, Pomona.
The pandemic revealed more than ever before why our privacy matters and is worth fighting for.
We help important individuals, businesses, families, homes, and offices put locks on their digital doors to stay private.
Can Your Windows & Mac or iPhone & Android Spy On You?!
Do you ever feel like your devices are watching you instead of the other way around? Well, unfortunately, they might actually be doing just that. Major companies such as Microsoft, Apple, and Google have been caught collecting user data without consent and selling it to third parties. In fact, according to recent investigations by The New York Times, “Google tracks which specific pages you visit on other sites.” Meanwhile, CNBC reports that “Apple has been accused of harvesting customer data” and “using it to create ‘persistent identifiers.'” And let’s not forget Microsoft, whose Windows operating system reportedly sends “telemetry data” to Redmond regularly.
This isn’t just a minor inconvenience either; it’s a direct violation of your right to privacy. Imagine if strangers could peek inside your home whenever they wanted. That would make you uncomfortable, wouldn’t it? So why should your digital space be any different? At R6S, we believe everyone deserves complete privacy and security across all their devices.
