Bright Data’s patented idle monitor technology ensures that an end user’s device is used under strict limitations so that battery power, bandwidth and data plan are preserved. These limitations consist of a monitor that restricts the usage of the device if being used by the end user, a minimum battery level threshold, a preference for use only when charging, a maximum daily allowed bandwidth usage per device and weekly maximum usage.

Are Bright Data Apps exposed to the user’s private network traffic?


Bright Data Apps are not exposed to the users’ private network traffic, don’t gather it, log it, or send it anywhere. We are not interested in it, it’s not our business and this was always the case.

In mobile operating systems Bright Data software is limited by the permissions infrastructure and so cannot access private data. On desktop operating systems Bright Data is in the process of releasing a new version of its software that will run inside a sandbox that will make it very clear that it does not have access to any User private information.
