General Questions

Who uses Stops?2020-11-26T14:14:39+02:00

People of all ages trust and use Stops, because Stops:

  1. does not track or follow its users, outside the location. Stops leverages the user’s location to deliver results to the user and not to track or store movements.
  2. does not share or sell any personal data or information with any 3D party.
  3. does not compete with its users.
  4. does not exploit personal information to ad-serve its users.
  5. does not police ‘public’ content or ban its users by political viewpoints.. With Stops, ‘public’ content is largely confined to a user’s subscribers and the ‘facts’ are corroborated in context by their location, which offer higher value points of validation. If a user doesn’t like the source, or finds the source offensive, they simply unsubscribe and all of their search results are removed from the system (learn more about the power of Filters).

What is Stops?2020-11-26T14:15:54+02:00

A privacy-centered, geo-spatial search engine and ‘smart city’ creation platform that helps users connect their content or products securely to 3D locations globally. With Stops, businesses of all kinds too can turn their locations into digital storefronts and syndicate their products and ads to relevant locations worldwide.

What’s a ‘stop’?2020-11-02T19:02:02+02:00

A “stop” is a 3D location with x/y/z (latitude, longitude & altitude) coordinates and micro-coordinates. People can securely connect anything digitally to a stop, and when they do, magic happens.

Which devices can I use with Stops?2020-10-26T09:56:12+02:00

Can Stops be viewed in a web browser?2020-11-18T11:03:30+02:00

YEP. You can view any public stop, Collection or Cube you create in any web browser.

First, open your stop, click Edit and confirm that your stop is marked “Public.”

Note, if your stop is marked “Private” then its URL is hidden from the public.

Next, click on the share button on the bottom navigation of any stop and share it to a Cube or outside of the application.

The person with whom you share the link, even if they are not a Stops user, can view the stop via the link.

If the person is already a Stops user, the stop will open, in context, inside the app.
