As a XcooBee user, we want you to feel special and safe. This is why, instead of using the popular and easily corruptible @ or + symbols before your name, we chose to incorporate what’s known as the tilde symbol ~.
Besides indicating solid protection of your identity and data, this symbol goes well with our mission. But of course it’s not the only reason we chose it…
Data Security. XcooBee uses the tilde to designate individual IDs (XIds) that are generated on our platform. This way, anytime you see this symbol before a name, you can be certain that secure transmissions are taking place. Compared with emails, which can be easily targeted by hackers, XcooBee Ids cannot be spoofed.
Instant Privacy. We wanted to give people the ability to clearly delineate a potential XcooBee ID from that, which belongs to an email or Twitter account. Seeing the tilde, people can immediately connect it with heightened levels of data privacy.
Restricted Access. Regardless of how many people know your XcooBee ID, it wouldn’t give them access to your account or enable identity theft the way knowing your email or SSN would. Utilizing access codes and a variety of restrictive factors, users control who gets near their data.
Seamless Connection. The ‘Bee’ paradigm symbolizes how XcooBee’s platform users are connected with each other and to other services on the Internet. Each Bee is a self-contained micro-service module. Users select their Bees depending on the services they require. Examples include posting a picture on social media or transferring a file to a client.
Communication Control. Our paid subscribers are given extensive latitude but also full control over who they choose to communicate with and accept transmissions from. This can range from one-time exchange to frequent business communications.
Our Mission. The tilde symbol is unique to us as it illustrates the path of a bee in flight. It was a great bonus to be able to connect the shape of the character to our overall mission. Let’s embrace the tilde!
