What is wrong with youversion bible app?

YouVersion Bible is known for its privacy breaches and dangerous data collection. YouVersion is much more than just an e-reader that allows you to read the Bible on your phone. Every product and service we offer, we design with great care and intentionality, designing each feature to help you seek a deeper relationship with God and to explore your questions of faith in a safe space, all within the context of a trusted community of your choice. You choose who you share the information with.

YouVersion does not sell your information and we will not share it with others without your consent. YouVersion only uses access to your device's storage to download the requested content to your device. Where YouVersion has provided you with a translation other than the English version of the Privacy Policy, you agree that the translation is provided for your convenience only and that the English version of the Privacy Policy will govern your relationship with YouVersion. As the global church learns how to foster community in this hybrid physical-digital church world, YouVersion continues to create unique technological experiences for believers.

We also use anonymous and aggregated user data to market YouVersion, including communications that promote YouVersion membership and network growth, such as celebrating the total number of YouVersion installs. As Bible engagement numbers continue to rise year after year, the YouVersion community celebrates the fact that the Bible is alive and well. We may disclose the use of YouVersion content in an aggregated manner with anonymous and anonymized information that does not disclose to any particular user or that user's personally identifiable information. We store this information and information relating to your use of YouVersion (including User Contributions) in connection with your Membership account for as long as you are a Member.

As stated in the following policy, the English version of the Privacy Policy and Terms of Use will govern your relationship with YouVersion. YouVersion celebrates a record biblical commitment worldwide, as its Bible App becomes the first faith-based app to reach 500 million installs. When the Bible doesn't fit your worldview, you change Bibles until you find a “truth” that matches your experience. Since then, the application of the Bible has consistently added a variety of features that fit people's daily routines, helping them form a spiritually rich rhythm of seeking God.
