Needl ensures safety of your data through strict encryption, data security and privacy protocols. Needl never shares your data with any third parties. Even within Needl, only a small set of authorized users have access to our database and within that group, no one will look at or examine your data on individual bases.
Needl is an ad-free app and it does not share your data with any third parties. Needl’s use of your data is limited to providing services to you that are covered under your subscription. This is also done using your explicit consent.
Your data is stored securely on Needl’s servers. All your information is encrypted and backed up.
No, Needl only acts as a backup and service provider for your data. Your data remains only yours, and you retain complete ownership of your data.
Needl allows you to stream data from external apps into your
personal Needl account. For example, you can choose a specific app (say WhatsApp or
Evernote), select the contacts or notebooks that you would like to link, and have them
streamed into Needl. In this way, your data will get replicated inside Needl, allowing you
to use Needl processing capabilities on it.

Activating the stream for the first time
If you set up a new integration and start streaming your data for the first time, it can take up to 24 hours before all your data starts reflecting in your Needl data stream. The streaming time depends on which app you have integrated and how much data is to be streamed.
Once your integration is active, Needl checks for changes in the sync every 3 hours.
As of now, we only go back a few days in time to fetch your chats and mails. All new messages generated after linking will be available in Needl.
By scanning your WhatsApp QR code, you are authorizing Needl to access your WhatsApp Web and fetch chats from your selected groups and contacts.
Needl only offers a one-way data stream. This means that data streamed into Needl from another app or source will stay independent of the source. Changes made to your data on Needl will not reflect in the original source, and changes made to your original data source will not reflect in Needl.
Needl can only stream data from sources that you have access to. If you lose access to a specific channel (for example, by exiting a chat group), Needl will also stop streaming data from that source.
Needl currently offers read-and-search only functionality. This means that you can stream and search data from different sources into Needl. However, responding from Needl is not possible.
Needl give you complete control over all your integrations at all times. For example, after linking a chat or notes app, you can always change the contacts or notebooks that you would like to stream to your Needl account. Moreover, you can delink your account by visiting your app settings on the Connect Apps page.
News and blogs are updated every two hours on Needl.
Documents and media are extracted from your personal data sources, namely, your emails, chats, notes and storage drives. Links are extracted only from your chats.
You can integrate your data sources with Needl. For example, you can link your WhatsApp, Gmail or Dropbox accounts to your Needl account and import data from these sources.
Needl allows you to select tabular structures inside PDFs and convert them directly to Excel files. Simply open a PDF, select a table, and clip it. Needl will generate an Excel file with the table – ready to be analyzed.
Currently, the clip and convert feature is only available for tabular structures in PDFs to Excel. Going forward, we will expand this functionality to multiple file formats.
The Needl search can be used to search across all data that has been integrated and streamed into your Needl account. This includes your personal notes, messages, files, documents as well as images.
Needl allows you to customize your search, i.e., you can look for results matching certain keywords in your search query (general match), or look for results matching the exact phrase (exact match).
Needl gives you a pre-filled feed consisting of popular data sources. Additionally, you can add your personal data sources from the Connect Apps page. Your Needl Feed will automatically get populated from your integrated apps.
Needl curates the most popular news, blogs and social media sites as well as important industry data sources (such as company annual reports, corporate announcements, filings, regulators, etc.)
