Privacy Policy

Prominent Disclosure

Fog of World collects location data to record your tracks even when the app is closed or not in use. The data only stays in the device unless you sync them with your cloud storage accounts for backup. But only you have access to them, we don’t.

Personal and Sensitive Information

Fog of World only requires access to your location data. None of any other personal and sensitive user data is accessed, used and collected. And none of your data will be shared.

Location Usage

Fog of World collects your location data to enable recording your tracks even when the app is closed or not in use (when the recording mode is turned on). However, the collected locations stay in your device. We don’t have any server to collect any of your data, and your data won’t be shared. You may sync your tracks (recorded location data) to your cloud storage accounts (Dropbox, Google Drive, etc) for backup or migration purposes, but that’s totally under your control.

Cloud Storage Usage

For Dropbox, OneDrive, Nutstore, and iCloud. Fog of World requires the “App Folder” permission, which means your data will be put in a sandbox and Fog of Wolrd only has access to that folder.

However, since Google Drive’s “App Folder” permission doesn’t allow users to access the “App Folder” directly. Fog of World requires Full Google Drive access so users can upload their GPX or KML files and import them to Fog of World later. Your Fog of World data will be stored in Google Drive’s “/Fog of World” folder and Fog of World only reads and writes that folder. None of other folders will be touched by Fog of World.

Here are the more detailed policies of Google Drive usage. (The same rules apply to other cloud storage as well except that your data is stored in the sandbox App Folder)

Only the '/Fog of World' folder at Google Drive's root is accessed. No any other folder will be touched.
Fog of World uses the 'Fog of World/Sync' folder for backup files and uses the 'Fog of Wolrd/Import' folder to allow users to upload track files so tracks can be imported to the app later.
Fog of World stores your backup files in the 'Fog of World/Sync' folder. No other folder will be touched.
We don't share any of your data. We don't even have a server to keep user's data.


We're working hard on the next big update of Fog of World (version 3), and which will be available for free updates as always. If you love Fog of World and would like to see more improvements coming, please consider supporting our work. It's highly appreciated.
