Your Data, Your Say: Explore the New Revoke Consent Feature on AesirX Shield of Privacy
Prioritizing online privacy and security while giving users greater control over their personal data, AesirX Shield of Privacy, now with the Revoke Consent option, is an indispensable tool for individuals and organizations alike.
AesirX Shield of Privacy is a groundbreaking decentralized identity management solution that enables users to create and manage their own digital identities without relying on third-party providers or intermediaries. Users can securely access and safeguard their data across any compatible website using their AesirX Shield of Privacy accounts, eliminating concerns about personal information exposure. They can also obstruct data collection and processing by providing consent tailored to their preferences.
Since its initial release, AesirX Shield of Privacy has evolved to provide more features and benefits to online users. One of the most exciting features is the revoke consent option, which allows users to withdraw their consent for any website that they have previously authorized to access their data via AesirX Shield of Privacy.
What is Revoke Consent and why is it important?
Revoke Consent is a feature that enables users to revoke their consent from any website to which they previously granted permission to use their data. This means they can prevent websites from collecting and processing their data at any time without affecting their online experience or functionality.
Data breaches and misuse are common in today's digital world, making Revoke Consent essential for data privacy and compliance. This option may be useful in the following scenarios:
- When you no longer trust a website:
You may have previously authorized a website to access your data, but you later discover that they were involved in a data breach, a scandal, or malicious activity. You should revoke your consent and stop sharing your data with them immediately.
- When you want to reduce your digital footprint:
Over time, you may have authorized multiple apps and websites that are no longer relevant to you. You have the right to revoke your consent and have your data removed from their servers.
- When you need to adhere to various data protection laws:
You may have authorized a website to access your data in one jurisdiction, but you later relocate to another where the data protection laws differ. You should revoke your consent and make sure that your data is not transferred or processed in violation of the new laws.
How does the Revoke Consent work on AesirX dApp?
AesirX's decentralized consent model includes four levels of consent. Revoke Consent is available in Tiers 3 and 4, and requires the use of Web3 Wallets and AesirX Shield of Privacy.
To use this feature, you must first sign up for and activate your Web3 wallet-based Shield of Privacy at https://shield.aesirx.io/.
