The Worrinots applications will be available soon on the Apple App store and the Google Play store by searching for The Worrinots.
The short answer is yes!
The Worrinots has been designed with security of data as a priority, as a company we understand the sensitive nature of what is being entered and the responsibility of how responses could influence a child’s behaviour. The Worrinots parent company, Oakley Mobile is a business that hosts a wealth of critical data with experience of secure and sensitive information.
The Worrinots and Oakley Mobile is registered under and works in line with the Data Protection Act. The company has security policies in place that are regularly updated as threats continue to evolve and that cover security governance, as well as standards for physical and logical security. The Worrinots and WotNot applications communicate with BAASBox, which is a secure and scalable back-end environment. The Worrinots has also ensured password encryption and full system, server and data storage security. The Worrinots has thought of every scenario, such as a guardian leaving, a device being lost or stolen, forgetting passwords, adding and removing devices, and has a security policy in place for each.
Once the application is installed your child will be able to create their own log in by simply opening up The Worrinots, select “New User”, enter their name, create a four digit pin number and enter their date of birth. Each time they re-visit the app simply log in using their name and pin number. If you have more than one child simply go through the same process for each.
The maximum number of users/children (per subscription) able to create an account for The Worrinots app is 5.

Worrinots Ltd is committed to ensuring that the app is as up-to-date and efficient as possible. For that reason, we reserve the right to make changes to the app and to make changes to the charges for the app, at any time and for any reason. We will never change these charges for the app or its services without making it very clear to you exactly what you’re paying for.
The Wotnot app stores and processes personal data that you have provided to it in signing into the app. It’s your responsibility to keep your phone and access to the app secure. We therefore recommend that you do not jailbreak or root your phone, which is the process of removing software restrictions and limitations imposed by the official operating system of your device. It could make your phone vulnerable to malware/viruses/malicious programs, compromise your phone’s security features and it could mean that the Wotnot app won’t work properly or at all.
You should be aware that there are certain things that Worrinots Ltd will not take responsibility for. Certain functions of the app, such as the ability to respond to the Worrinots app using the Wotnot app will all require the app to have an active internet connection. The connection can be Wi-Fi, or provided by your mobile network provider, but Worrinots Ltd cannot take responsibility for the app not working at full functionality if you don’t have access to Wi-Fi, and you don’t have any of your data allowance left.
If you’re using the app outside of an area with Wi-Fi, you should remember that your terms of agreement with your mobile network provider will still apply. As a result, you may be charged by your mobile provider for the cost of data for the duration of the connection while accessing the app, or other third party charges. In using the app, you’re accepting responsibility for any such charges, including roaming data charges if you use the app outside of your home territory (i.e. region or country) without turning off data roaming. If you are not the bill payer for the device on which you’re using the app, please be aware that we assume that you have received permission from the bill payer for using the app.
Along the same lines, Worrinots Ltd cannot always take responsibility for the way you use the app. If you share your device with others and this device is not secured, that person will have access to the confidential information stored within the app.
As Worrinots Ltd develops new functionality we will update the app. The app is currently available on Android and iOS – the requirements for both systems may change, and you’ll need to download the updates if you want to keep using the app. Worrinots Ltd does not promise that it will always update the Wotnot app so that it is relevant to you and/or works with the iOS/Android version that you have installed on your device. However, you promise to always accept updates to the application when offered to you, We may also wish to stop providing the app, and may terminate use of it at any time without giving notice of termination to you. Unless we tell you otherwise, upon any termination, (a) the rights and licenses granted to you in these terms will end; (b) you must stop using the app, and (if needed) delete it from your device.
