Should the accountability partner create the Truple account or the individual wanting to stay accountable?
Either one! Truple is designed to work both ways.
Why is Truple better than other accountability tools?
Other accountability apps rely too heavily on "artificial intelligence" to recognize bad content. Whenever the accountability system relies on an algorithm to identify bad content, there's going to be loopholes that can be taken advantage of. With Truple, we use our algorithm to flag bad content, but allow you to review all of the content. As a result, Truple offers the highest level of transparency of any accountability app (if you want it). We accomplish this through a number of different techniques. First, we allow accountability partners to review crystal clear screenshots--not just lists of websites visited. Your accountability partner will literally be looking at what you looked at. Second, we allow accountability partners to review all screenshots, not just high risk ones. Third, we do not require image blurring and provide other optional features like text redaction if you wish to maintain some privacy. Fourth, we offer screenshot accountability *and* web history tracking *and* the event timeline. Web history tracking and event timeline are not available on all platforms, but they allow accountability partners to investigate what occurred between screenshots.
Do I have to have an accountability partner to use Truple?
Truple works best with an accountability partner, but we're working on ways to improve self accountability. Reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll work with you to get the best solution built.
Can I see a list of all the features offered on each platform?
Truple requires android 5 or above to run. When looking for a new android phone, we would highly recommend any phone running stock android version 11 or higher. Google Pixel devices are great phones, and the Pixel 4a is a mid-range phone that runs Truple extremely well for $350.
Does Truple run on iOS?
Due to constraints imposed by Apple, all accountability apps are crippled on iOS. Our iOS solution offers device wide internet accountability (web history tracking). Most accountability apps on iOS are browser specific, meaning they'll have you install a custom browser and then tell you to limit access to all other browsers. Unfortunately limiting access to all other browsers is extremely difficult, as many apps contain hidden browsers within them, not to mention that apps themselves can contain bad content that wouldn't be captured.
Does Truple run on Windows, MacOS, Chromebook, Linux, Kindle?
What about my privacy? What if I don't want my accountability partner reading all my chats, emails, and text messages?
You can enable text redaction and/or image blurring, as well as limit the accountability partner so they can only review data flagged by our algorithms as problematic. Enabling end to end encryption will ensure only you and your accountability partner(s) can read your accountability data.
Is there anyone that can help me setup Truple?
Yes! The Truple app provides a setup guide once you subscribe. If further help is needed, just email email@example.com.
Can I hide the Truple notification icon?
No. Truple is voluntary use software, and is not intended (or allowed) to be used as spyware. All of our applications require a persistent notification.
Can I have my accountability report emailed to someone?
Yes you can! Once you've signed up, just visit app.truple.io/emails to add email recipients. Emails will contain a summary of accountability data, with a link allowing the accountability partner access to view screenshots.
How does Truple implement security?
For most platforms, we offer end to end encryption which is the highest level of data security offered by any accountability app. For all platforms we also use HTTPS and AES.
Will Truple capture personal information like bank account numbers, etc. in the screenshots?
Yes it could. It's important that you trust your accountability partner. We offer privacy features such as image blurring, text redaction, and banking information redaction on some platforms in an effort to help with this.
Is Truple tamper proof?
Truple is the most tamper proof product that we are aware of. We will continue to do all we can to keep Truple as tamper proof as possible.
Will Truple capture social media content like Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, etc.?
If a random screenshot occurs while social media is being viewed, then it will be captured.
Will Truple capture text messages, WhatsApp messages, etc.?
If a random screenshot occurs while the message is being viewed, then it will be captured.
Why do I see a black box for the screenshot when I view Netflix or another site's copyrighted content?
Apps like Netflix use a secure flag to prevent people from illegally copying their videos. This results in the Truple screenshot only showing a black box where the video actually is on the screen.
Why does Google Play, Hulu prevent me from watching videos when Truple monitoring is enabled?
Unfortunately Google Play & Hulu prevents playback once a screen capturing app is running. We've added the Auto-Pause feature to help with this. On Android 11+, we're able to fix this so it's no longer an issue.
Do I have to pay for an additional device just to view the screenshots?
