Dodoname is now mobile

Dodoname is now mobile

Interact with merchants on the go without sacrificing your online privacy

NEW GLASGOW, NS AND OTTAWA ON – January 13, 2015 – Dodoname (www.www.dodoname.com), the world’s first privacy marketing platform, is now available as a free mobile app from Apple’s App Store.

Whether you’re shopping online, visiting a retailer’s physical store, working or browsing, the situation often arises where you are asked to provide an email address. Perhaps it’s to receive an electronic receipt, take advantage of a special promotion, or sign up for a newsletter.

But providing that email address can easily lead to a flood of annoying and unwanted email solicitations. In some instances, giving out your email address can lead to malicious spam and phishing attacks.

Dodoname puts an end to this privacy abuse.

Imagine going shopping with all your coupons and offers in one convenient app. Use Dodonames to register with your favorite stores or online merchants. The next time you go shopping the old-fashioned way, all your coupons are right there on your mobile device for merchants to scan at checkout. It’s the single best way to interact with any merchant or vendor to get the stuff you want – and only the stuff you want – without giving up your privacy and anonymity.

Dodoname launched last fall as a web application. And now it’s now available as a convenient and free mobile app for iOS.

“The Dodoname mobile app is the ideal way to shop and create one-on-one relationships with merchants to get the deals you want,” said Dodoname founder and CEO Michael Gaffney. “In the past, you had to create multiple burner email accounts to preserve some semblance of online privacy. Even then, you still had to provide a lot of personal information about yourself. Dodoname gives you true privacy, without having to jump through hoops, with a simple-to-use app.”

Stay tuned to take advantage of DodoDeals, DodoCoupons and DodoLinks. Beginning next month, Dodoname will not only manage the coupons and offer of your favorite merchants but merchants will put Coupons and Deals directly on Dodoname, making the process of finding good offers even easier. Remember to complete your Persona on the web application to truly take advantage of these new features.

How it works

Consumers can use a Dodoname instead of their real email address for almost any interaction with a merchant or vendor. With your Dodoname account, you can spawn any number of unique Dodonames on the fly that are iterations of your primary Dodoname. For example, if you chose Superwoman as your Dodoname, then superwoman.01@dodoname.com would be the first additional Dodoname spawned, followed by superwoman.02@dodoname.com, and so on.

Use these Dodonames as you would a regular email address, to sign up for offers, register a warranty, receive an e-receipt, download a whitepaper, subscribe to a magazine, or for any other kind of interaction with a merchant or vendor. Your Dodonames are easily managed through one account, with a single dashboard and a single inbox that is accessible through our mobile app and our web application.

Dodonames can be made to go extinct after a single use, after a specific period, or on command at any time. In this way, consumers retain complete control over how, when, where – or even if – merchants can communicate with them, and can drop merchants at any time with an absolute guarantee they will never hear from them again.

Existing Dodoname users can access their accounts through the mobile app using their current login. For new users, all you need to do to get started is download the app to your device and create and validate your account with a few simple steps.

Download the iOS Dodoname app today at https://itunes.apple.com/ca/app/dodoname-love-your-privacy/id943964384?mt=8&ign-mpt=uo%3D4

An Android version of the mobile app is coming soon.

Take back control of your online identity with Dodoname

Take back control of your online identity with Dodoname

New privacy marketing platform means the end of online privacy abuse

NEW GLASGOW, NS AND OTTAWA ON – November 4, 2014 – Dodoname (www.dodoname.com), the world’s first privacy marketing platform, has launched in open beta, giving savvy consumers the power to confidently interact with merchants without compromising their online privacy.

We all deal with it, day in, day out – piles of unwanted email. From solicitations from legitimate sources, to spam and malicious phishing – most of what hits our inboxes is junk.

Why? Because we engage and interact online with our email address. And once this vital piece of information is out there, it’s defenseless against misuse.

Dodoname puts an end to this online privacy abuse. It’s the single best way to interact with merchants and vendors to get the stuff you want – and only the stuff you want – without ever revealing who you are. Your privacy and anonymity are assured.

“Merchants and marketers don’t need to know who you are to give you what you really want,” said Dodoname founder and CEO Michael Gaffney. “In the past, you had to create multiple burner email accounts to preserve some semblance of online privacy. Even then, you still had to provide a lot of personal information about yourself. Dodoname gives you true privacy, without having to jump through hoops.”

Once the Dodoname mobile app comes online in a few weeks, you will be able to manage your Dodoname account from any connected device. The only piece of information you have to provide to create your account and get started is your email, which Dodoname will not disclose to anyone else.

Consumers can use a Dodoname instead of their real email address for almost any interaction with a merchant. With your Dodoname account, you can spawn any number of unique Dodonames that are iterations of your Dodoname. For example, superman.01@dodoname.com, followed by superman.02@dodoname, and so on.

Use these Dodonames as you would a regular email address, to sign up for offers, register a warranty, receive an e-receipt, download a whitepaper, subscribe to a magazine, or for any other kind of interaction.

Dodonames can be made to go extinct after a single use, after a specific period, or on command at any time. In this way, consumers retain complete control over how, when, where – or even if – merchants can communicate with them, and can drop merchants at any time with an absolute guarantee they will never hear from them again.

What’s next?

But Dodoname is much more than just a privacy messaging service.

In the coming weeks, we will launch our merchant app. Participating merchants will be able to make personalized offers direct to Dodoname users who have opted in by completing some or all of their Dodoname persona. A persona will detail personal – but not private, identifying – information to help merchants deliver individualized offers. Consumers will retain full control over which kinds of offers they want to receive, if any, and which ones they don’t.

“With Dodoname, the consumer always calls the shots,” said Gaffney. “We give you what you want, when you want it, and when you’ve had enough, ‘no’ always means ‘no.’”

Get in the queue to grab your unique Dodoname

Get in the queue to grab your unique Dodoname

New privacy marketing platform means the end of online privacy abuse

NEW GLASGOW, NS AND OTTAWA ON – September 23, 2014 – Savvy consumers who want to confidently interact with merchants without compromising their online privacy are today invited to get in the queue to join Dodoname (www.dodoname.com), the world’s first privacy marketing platform that will launch by invitation only in about three weeks.

Consumers who join the queue will get first crack at selecting the Dodoname of their choice, and will be the first to be able to use this novel new service that will mean they will never again have to give out their actual email address.

“If you’ve ever wanted to be Julius Caesar, or R2D2, or Elvis, or Da Vinci, now’s your chance,” said Dodoname founder and CEO Michael Gaffney. “Those who get in line first will have first dibs over the Dodoname of their liking, whether it’s an historical figure, their favorite superhero, or a beloved literary figure.”

Consumers can use a Dodoname instead of their real email address for almost any interaction with a merchant. They can spawn new Dodonames on the fly, either on the desktop or through a mobile app, to sign up for offers, register a warranty, receive an e-receipt, download a whitepaper, subscribe to a magazine or transact any other type of interaction – all while retaining complete control and privacy.

Dodonames can be made to go extinct after a single use, after a specific period, or on command at any time. In this way, consumers retain complete control over how, when, where – or even if – merchants can communicate with them, and can drop merchants at any time with an absolute guarantee they will never hear from them again.

“Our goal is nothing less than to elevate and optimize the relationship between consumers and merchants by making it authentic, transparent, controlled and, best of all, private,” said Gaffney. “Consumers can at last go where they want, do what they want, and access whatever information they want, without having to fear that unwelcome offers and other spam will flood their inboxes.”

The Dodoname consumer app will launch by invitation only in about three weeks. (A follow-up release with additional functionality is planned for November 2014.) To get an invitation, consumers can, starting today, join a queue to be among the first in the world to take advantage of this new privacy marketing platform and to have the best chance of claiming the unique Dodoname of their choice.

You can move up in the queue by inviting members of your social networks to also get in queue. The more people who click your link and join the queue, the higher you climb. When the platform launches, those in the queue will be invited to join and claim their unique Dodoname. Invitations will be sent out on a staggered basis starting with those who have generated the most additional sign-ups.
