Why / Us
We're the first to admit that we don't have all the answers. We're just two blokes (a first year college student and a middle aged layed-off guy for those who are really interested) doing something about an issue we feel strongly about. But we do have some of the answers. Hopefully, they're of use to you too.
Go ahead, get some balance in your bytes, use the Tula.

The present state of affairs in the digital world, as far as personal privacy is concerned, is heavily skewed in the favour of big corporations.
This is because traditionally, privacy has always been thought of as protecting the individual from the state. No one else had the wherewithal to intrude on personal privacy in quite the same way that the state can.
All that has changed with the advent of the Internet.
Now, big companies have access to our private affairs to a degree that was unthinkable just a few years ago.
How lucrative is this mass surveillance?
Why has this state of affairs come about.
There are many reasons but two main ones stand out.
First, most ordinary users of the internet aren't aware that they're being surveilled, or don't appreciate the scale at which it's happening.
You can't change what you don't know about.
By change, we mean taking concrete steps to do something about it. For example, get your government to pass laws to restrict this mass surveillance, or download tools to stop it happening in the first place.
Second, no one is making any tools that allow ordinary people to do anything about it.
At TulaByte, we're in the same boat as you. We're concerned about our privacy online, but despite being digitally savvy (we think), we could find no easy way to take some control of it.
So we set out to do just that.
Our aim is to bring about a balance in the playing field. We plan to do this by developing tools that will let us do this in the best & simplest way, at the cheapest price possible.
To ensure that we ourselves don't become beholden to the same corporate interests, we're completely funded by our users. This means our efforts are supported by donations and subscriptions.
We collect no data about our users, we've ensured that we can't, and nor do we ever want to.
The above Infographic tries to encapsulate where the digital world is today, and our vision for the future.
