YourPDi - at a glance
YourPDi, Your Personal Digitalisation, is the app where you easily, quickly and securely organize and store important information and valuable documents.
The app gets you in control of everything from receipts of your valuable belongings, documents from the renovation, log-in details, the family's vaccination records to the colors of the walls in your home. With YourPDi you can easily upload and scan information, images and documents and sort to any of the main categories; ME, THINGS, FAMILY, HOME and PROJECTS and then also sort to any of the many subcategories. You can tag "owners" and even share documents with family members.
As a user, you can also receive reminders when, for example, a contract is to be renewed or a vaccination syringe is filled. Everything is stored in one place and safely protected in the cloud. Everything is searchable and you can quickly find what you need when you need it the most.
You can try YourPDi unconditionally, Mini Free, and if you want additional features you can choose one of the two different subscription plans, Me and Family Share. More information about prices and subscriptions can be found under "Account & Subscription".

Functions & Usage
Do I always have to write a "Title"?
All documents need a unique name in order to be stored in the database and therefore you always have to type something in the "title" line. All data that you fill in the fields will be searchable, which makes it easy to find the information you are looking for.
For example, you can name a document "Clock, Swatch" and the next time you search for "clock" or "Swatch", the document you saved will be displayed.
How do I set reminders?
When uploading a document, you can choose when to set a reminder. You choose a date ahead in time. For example, it may be when an agreement expires, a vaccination must be filled, etc.

Go to settings and "add & invite person". Here you can enter up to 9 people's names. Next time, for example, you submit a receipt, a vaccination - go to “owner” in the template and select the name of the family member to whom you want to attach the receipt or vaccination.
NOTE: just because you have added who "owns" a document this doesn't mean that you share the document with this person. To be able to share, you need to have a "Family Share" account.

How safe is YourPDi?
We prioritize security. YourPDi encrypts all information that you send between your mobile and the storage location in the cloud. The information you choose to save in YourPDi is solely yours and no one but you can see what you uploaded. You control which documents you may choose to share with family members.
YourPDi also use an advanced system that detects spam and viruses before they do any harm. So stay calm - your information is protected!
What are the different levels of security?
By default, YourPDi uses a strong encryption key (128 bit) that encrypts all documents and information stored and sent, between your mobile and the cloud service. You can also choose a higher security standard (advanced) with a longer encryption key (265 bit). You create these crypto keys with two personal questions and answers.
