Atavi service for storing bookmarks in the cloud

4.2 out of 5 stars

Atavi is a free bookmark manager that lets you store your bookmarks in the cloud. Like so many of these services. So, this means you can bookmark the websites you like, group them together and sync them with any device: PC, laptops, tablets, smartphones.

If you make a change, you’ll see them immediately on all other devices. That’s the great part. You just have to open Atavi.com, log into the system, and there you go. It’s not that hard.

Each site you bookmark has their own thumbnails, so this solution is actually nice to look at. It’s not text-based, which we consider a big plus. 

We still worry, though, as this site seems to be a robust and useful tool, that none-the-less offers to collect our personal browsing history. Will this be done with the privacy of their users in mind? We’ve looked at the Privacy Policy, as well as the Terms of Use, and we’re not convinced.

First of all, the company seems to have changed these important document only in 2014. So that’s years before the GDPR became rule of law, at least for European users. And since the company speaks about adhering to the court of law in England and Whales, the United Kingdom, this is rather strange. It looks like this service has once been designed and programmed, but is no longer actively developed.

The Twitter feed tells us just about the same story. No tweets. No activity. That’s a shame, really. It was so promising a service, now I hesitate to trust them with my daily routines and history.
