Plans for Launch
The idea of Winston was first initiated in October 2017 and the first design was created by the Winston Company in November 2017. The Winston Company started initial prototype testing in March 2018 and the Field Trials were started September 2018.
The Kickstarter campaign was launched in May 2019 and was successful and the mass production was started June 2019.
Winston’s was founded by Richard Stokes, who was in the ad-tech industry for over a decade. He was a very successful Global Head of Innovation for a very large multinational company. He always was aware of the policies of different software and websites.
All the information you search, the purchases you make, the things you watch, have been stored in a cloud somewhere. There is no respect for an individual’s privacy. Which is why he and his team came across the idea for Winston.
The Winston team has one sole purpose, to allow the users to take back the control of their own Online Privacy.
