Frequently asked questions

How does Behavidence keep my data secure?

We are take safety and security very seriously. We are operating under the AAED principle: Abstraction - The data is never stored as a complete set of behavioral data. Anonymization - The data is completely anonymized and never stored together with any personal information. Even Behavidence employees can not access any of your personal information (e.g: Name, Address, etc). Encryption - All the data we are collecting is fully encrypted from the onset. Distribution - We are distributing the data into top-of-the-line servers in different locations to make sure that even in a worst case scenario of a breach into our servers no one will be able to use the data or to identify any personal information.

How can I join the ADHD research?

It is very simply - go to Google Play, download the Behavidance app, follow the on-screen instruction and you are ready to go!

Who has access to my child's data?

You and your child do. The only access we have is the anonymous data of a randomized number who spends, for example, 2 minutes every 3 hours on Snapchat or Tiktok. This data is not linked to your child in any way. Even if our servers are breached in any way, they would not be able to put any identity together with the data. Everything is processed on different servers and stored separately. Security is our most passionate endeavor.

How does Behavidence differ from other mental health apps?

We are completely unbiased. Our data is being used to create an objective Always On assessment. We are about making mental health diagnosis and management more accessible and affordable. More than that, unlike many apps, we are not affiliated with health insurance companies or pharmaceutical companies.

How accurate will the digital phenotype be?

The beauty of Behavidence is that the interpretation of your child's digital behavior is a 24 hour x 365 day accurate model. This is an objective view versus the often short and subjective assessments mental health conditions are diagnosed with.

What do we get out of the initial research?

It will be easy to monitor the effect of your childs cell phone usage and patterns on their emotional well-being. Should your child have a particularly difficult day, it may show on the Behavidence app that they spent an extra 3 hours on social apps or gaming. Another way of reading the data would be a stress indicator - switching the phone on and off excessively may indicate that your child is experiencing more anxiety than normal. Once we have more data, and hence the research, we will be able to give you more and more indicators of how to read the data from the app.
