Lenovo Privacy Essentials by FigLeaf

2019-09-04, 13:23 PM
  • When consumers shop online, manage their finances, or set up a social media account, their personal data may be stored in places outside of their control, making it vulnerable to leaks. Lenovo teamed up with FigLeaf to deliver a new, smarter privacy capability available within Lenovo Vantage—the free, simple and customizable dashboard available on Lenovo consumer PCs with Windows 10. 
  • Gives users more control over what personal data they help shield from the unwelcomed and unauthorized collection and distribution of their sensitive information. 
    • The security capabilities within Lenovo Vantage are designed to safeguard you from viruses and other threats; our privacy capabilities under the new privacy tab1will help protect your data (i.e., email logins, purchase info, and preferences) when shared online with other sites while doing everyday activities such as shopping or setting up social media accounts. 
    • The first PC maker to collaborate with FigLeaf on a fully-integrated platform experience, Lenovo’s new privacy capabilities include components like curated privacy tools and alerts as part of the Lenovo Vantage experience, accessible for free for a limited time which allows you to act if your information may be part of a database breach or available on the dark web.  

Features and benefits, include: 

  • Mask New Accounts: When signing up on a new website, you can choose to be provided a masked email address and strong auto-generated password to use, which is saved in FigLeaf for automatic login. If that site gets hacked, your real email stays private.
  • Detect and Block Trackers: When browsing, you can connect privately to help prevent sites from tracking you—advertisers and ISPs (Internet Service Providers) won’t know where you go and what you search for.
  • Scans and Alerts for Breaches:Find out what of your personal information may have been hacked and control your privacy moving forward. Know if your email addresses and passwords are floating around publicly or on the dark web, and get 24/7 reports with rich details, such as, date, time, and what was discovered (with core features free for the lifetime of the device; includes up to five masked email accounts)
  • Site-by-Site Control: Sometimes you want to be private, other times you’re happy to share. Lenovo Privacy Essentials by FigLeaf gives you the power to choose who has your information — wherever you go online. You can set unique privacy rules for every site you visit (with core features free for the lifetime of the device; includes up to five masked email accounts)

* Lenovo Vantage 3.0 will soon get a landmark privacy software update later this year for select Lenovo consumer PCs.

 

Consumer Privacy Solution Pricing/Availability

  • General availability of Lenovo Privacy Essentials by FigLeaf is expected to start in December 2019; consumers will be offered a free 14-day trial with the full app experience. Users who do not select monthly plan (pricing to be shared later) after trial ends will have continued access to several privacy tools via Lenovo Vantage for an unlimited time.
