Most of us don’t read license agreements of the apps that we use. I myself am guilty of this. I just scroll down and click or tap “I agree” and I go on my merry way after. Since most of the time we do this, we have no idea what the consequences will be unless we encounter an issue within the app. Thankfully, we have a “robot lawyer” in our midst that could help us take the mystery out of license agreements.
DoNotPay, the “robot lawyer” service that helps you contest parking tickets and even sue people, is launching a new tool to help customers understand license agreements. Called “Do Not Sign,” the service is included with DoNotPay’s monthly $3 subscription fee, and it lets users upload, scan, or copy and paste the URLs of any license agreements they’d like to check. The service uses machine learning to highlight clauses it thinks users need to know about, including options to opt out from data collection. It’s available starting today, November 20th, on the web and via DoNotPay’s app on iOS.
