How It Works
According to their website, Google needs to learn more about how people use the internet, especially on their mobile devices, so they can improve their products and services, and create a better online experience for everyone.
What you need to do to provide them with the information they need is to download a browser extension on your computer, and what they call a “mobile meter” on your smart phone and/or tablet device.
These extensions and meters will track the information that Google is looking for, like what times of day people browse, how long they stay on websites or use applications, and what types of sites and apps are popular, and which are not, and provide that info to the company.
What To Know
Their panel management partner, uSamp, will give you up to $8 in rewards just for signing up and installing the meters on your various devices. Then they will provide you with up to $2 in rewards each week afterward that you maintain your work with them.
Many people that these types of research – using applications to record your online movements – will invade your privacy and record information you do not want them to have. In response to this, Screenwise promises that whenever you use the Google Chrome Incognito page none of your information will be recorded.
If you want to participate with this company but do not have an active Google account or use the Chrome browser, Screenwise will help you set up those things for free. And if you are not sure if you have qualifying mobile devices, you can simply answer a free questions on their website and find out instantly.
