Onavo and Your Data
WHO are we?
Onavo is a mobile app company that helps today’s technology consumers and companies work more efficiently in a mobile world. In October 2013, Onavo became a subsidiary of Facebook, Inc. to make an even bigger impact by supporting Facebook’s mission to connect the world.
WHAT do we do?
At Onavo, we use data compression technology and mobile analytics to develop apps that help people take back control of their phone's mobile data use. Our three services – Extend, Count, and Protect – help people extend the value of their existing data plan, understand what's costing them, and ensure that their data connection is secure while they browse the mobile web.
HOW does it work?
When you start using Onavo apps, you permit your mobile and Wi-Fi data use to be processed through Onavo’s servers. As your data travels from Onavo’s servers back to your phone, Onavo compresses it, increasing the power of your data plan by up to 500%.
