TraceMyFile is a remarkable new innovative image-tracing platform designed and developed in Sweden. This digital service helps users protect themselves, their businesses and their families in the chaotic digital world we live in. Statistics show that vast numbers of images are stolen and misused everyday over the internet. TraceMyFile uses cutting-edge technology to prevent identity theft and scans the entire web for stolen image files, delivering tracing reports right to your inbox.
TraceMyFile focuses on the social impact and positive change that they can bring to anyone affected by online abuse and identity theft. They team up with various charities that protect children and the vulnerable around the world. “We are raising funds to launch an image recognition service designed for all, not just the professionals,” - says the co-founder Jesper Wiberg while introducing this project to the Kickstarter community. This product was designed with families in mind. It provides greater online privacy and protection from abuse for individuals, families, as well as businesses.”
TraceMyFile tells the story behind the project on their Kickstarter page. It is a story of both vision and love. Unfortunately, the company founder, Swedish serial entrepreneur Gunnar Nilsson, passed away from glioblastoma brain tumour before he could see his passion project come fully to life. “Gunnar always dreamed big. He was an entrepreneur to the core and a talented visionary who wanted to protect his children and every individual’s digital future. If anyone could make the internet a safer place, it was him. It has now become my life’s mission to make Gunnar’s legacy live,” - comments Diana Nilsson Shafikova, Gunnar’s wife and a co-founder of TraceMyFile.
In addition to locating the web pages that use a stolen image file, TraceMyFile also discovers modified, edited or higher resolution versions of an image. It allows users to track and monitor how their images perform geographically and over time by providing them with detailed analytics and tracing reports. TraceMyFile also aims to assist in taking the misused files down making users’ digital life and file sharing experience safer.
