Wondering what data gets saved when you log out of Shift? Keep reading here! 

 

The majority of data for Shift is stored locally on your computer. This is designed on purpose to help ensure maximum security! Shift is as secure as your computer is. Some data, however, is sent to and stored on Shift's servers, allowing you to access the same features even if you get logged out (local data cleared) or want to use Shift on another computer. Opened web tabs and pinned tabs are stored locally! See more below 👇🌈

  • Added Chrome extensions

  • Shift browser settings (link opening preferences, permissions, etc.)
  • Browsing history
  • Opened web tabs and pinned tabs
  • Data that keep you logged into your accounts
