TallyLab Your Data, Your Insight.

Howdy, talliers! Summer's not over yet.

We are in Open Beta! Invite your friends. Tell the World.

Last week, TallyLab moved out of invite-only into what's known in the biz as "open beta". If you're psyched about what we're doing, please spread the word.

We started a blog and a case study series

One of the best ways to figure out how you want to use TallyLab is to learn more about how others are using it. To that end, we've started a series in our blog highlighting real insights gleaned by actual users.

Chart comparing Zella's sleep to her Vitamin B intake

Our first case study is from Zella (a pseudonym) who wanted to figure out if taking Vitamin B before bed would help her sleep better.

A Warning for iPhone and iPad users

We've had a couple of reports of people's TallyLab data getting wiped from their iOS device. As best we can tell, this can happen if you don't open TallyLab for a while (i.e. several weeks or months). Another good reason to use TallyLab regularly!

We can't know if iOS is securing your data

Either way: If you've opened the app since August 10th and your data is all there, you're covered by our remote backup system — even if you take extended breaks from the app.

TallyLab has been backing up your data since 8/10/18

This failsafe requires a couple of simple actions on your part:

  1. In order to retrieve your backup, you'll need to follow a few steps. They've been lovingly detailed for you here: TallyLab Remote Backup Support
  2. In order to use your backup, you'll need access to your encryption keys. More on that under "No Joke: Did you get serious about security yet?".

No Joke: Did You Get Serious About Security Yet?

Backing up your data to our cloud is only half the battle: If you lose your device, you'll need your encryption keys in order to restore from that backup.

TallyLab is encrypted at rest and in the cloud

If you haven't done so yet, the next time you open TallyLab:

Go to the new Security area of the app, click on "Generate new keys by answering our questions" and answer the series of autobiographical questions we've assembled.

How to create new encryption keys by answering security questions

Once you've done that, click "Save your current keys", which will generate a keyfile you can keep as a backup to your brain.

There's tons more info on this in our Support site:

Support Our Work
