Tasker: Privacy Policy

How Tasker Uses Your Data

  • Accesses: Tasker does not access ANY user data unless you, the user, specifically set up a profile or task in Tasker to do so.
  • Uses: Tasker does not use ANY user data unless you, the user, specifically set up a profile or task in Tasker to do so.
  • Stores: Tasker does not store ANY user data unless you, the user, specifically set up a profile or task in Tasker to do so.
  • Shares: Tasker does not share your data with ANY THIRD PARTY unless you, the user, specifically set up a profile or task in Tasker to do so.

Some examples of Tasker using personal data ON YOUR REQUEST

  • Tasker will upload your SMS log information to a server if you create a profile to do so.
  • Tasker will upload your contacts' phone number information to a server if you create a profile to do so.
  • Tasker will log all the wifi networks you connect to to a file if you create a profile to do so.
  • Tasker will send your exact location to a Google Spreadsheet every minute if you create a profile to do so.

It's up to you how Tasker uses your data. By default Tasker doesn't access, use, store or share or data in any way.

Background Location

With Tasker your privacy is secured.

Tasker needs to use your location in the background to be able to perform various location related automations. For example, you can setup a profile that changes your ringer volume whenever you are in a certain location. You could also check your location in a task and send it to your partner for example. Tasker will never share your location with anyone and will never need this permission for any other purpose other than to help you automate whatever you need based on your location.

Other Topics

  • The developer does not know anything about the customer except what is given in the Google Wallet payment details. That data will not be used by the developer except for accounting and tax purposes, where required by the relevant tax authorities.
  • Tasker does not, to the best of the developer's knowledge, send any data, anywhere, unless it is requested by the user e.g. sending an automatic SMS.
    Possible exception: the developer has no control over the data which Google may collect when Tasker uses Google services e.g. for some forms of location
  • detection.
  • If the user creates a project in Tasker to explicitly do so, Tasker can send SMS data, call data or any other data to a cloud server or any server of the user's choosing. Tasker will NEVER send any data anywhere by default though.
  • Tasker is not part of any ad or statistics network.
  • Tasker uses the BIND_DEVICE_ADMIN permission in its manifest but it is only used to provide ability to lock the device in situations the user specifies
  • If you sign in to your Google account using Tasker (to import projects from Taskernet, to use Google Drive integration or any other reason), you'll share your name, email address and profile picture with Tasker. However, Tasker's developer will not keep any of this information. This info is used as follows:
    • Taskernet Imports: used to authenticate your request to find out that you're a legitimate Tasker user making the request to import
    • Google Drive: used to access your Google Drive files and folders so they can be manipulated by Tasker and so that Tasker can automatically backup its setup if the user enabled it.
  • If you decide to share data to Tasker's server as described here, further policies apply, described here.
