Privacy Policy

This policy is meant to help you understand what data we collect, why we collect it, and what we do with it. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us at our support page.

This policy applies to all information collected or submitted on SMSBarrier’s website and our apps for iPhone and any other devices and platforms.

Information we collect

When you enable SMSBarrier message filtering on your device, we will have access to the text and content included in incoming SMS and MMS messages that you receive from senders that are not in your device contacts. These messages may include verification codes from banks or other institutions, as well as other personal or sensitive information that may be in SMS or MMS messages.

You can disable SMSBarrier at any time, which will prevent the application from receiving any incoming SMS and MMS messages.

Like many websites and apps, we also store information through the use of software that may be transparent to users. For example, we may log your IP address and general information about your browser or device.

In-app analytics SMSBarrier’s iOS app collects aggregate, anonymous statistics, such as the percentage of users who use particular features, to improve the app and prioritize future development efforts. Crash reports are also collected to help improve the app.

How we use information we collect

We use the information we collect to operate and improve our website, apps, spam detection algorithms, and customer support.

We do not share your personal information with outside parties.

We may share anonymous, aggregate statistics with outside parties.

We may disclose your information in response to subpoenas, court orders, or other legal requirements; to exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims; to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud or abuse, violations of our policies; or to protect our rights and property.

California Online Privacy Protection Act Compliance

We comply with the California Online Privacy Protection Act. We therefore will not distribute your personal information to outside parties without your consent.

Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act Compliance

We never collect or maintain information at our website from those we actually know are under 13, and no part of our website is structured to attract anyone under 13.

Information for European Union Customers

By using SMSBarrier and providing your information, you authorize us to collect, use, and store your information outside of the European Union.

International Transfers of Information

Information may be processed, stored, and used outside of the country in which you are located. Data privacy laws vary across jurisdictions, and different laws may be applicable to your data depending on where it is processed, stored, or used.

Business Transfers

If SMSBarrier, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that SMSBarrier goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of SMSBarrier may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.

By using our site or apps, you consent to our privacy policy.

We do not warrant the completeness or accuracy of the information published on this website; nor do we commit to ensuring that the website remains available or that the material on the website is kept up to date.
