Rewind takes a privacy-first approach

How we safeguard your memories

For your privacy, your screen and audio recordings are stored locally and NEVER leave your Mac.

What happens when you capture screen or audio?

Compression, Automated Speech Recognition (ASR), and Optical Character Recognition (OCR) all happen locally.

What happens when you search in Rewind?

All recording data stays local. Rewind will query your memories to present you with the most relevant results.

What about meeting summaries or Ask Rewind?

If you choose to use our meeting summarization or Ask Rewind features, only relevant text-based data is sent to the cloud and is encrypted in transit.

Pause capturing at any point

Delete any moment
