Women's Health Gets a Clue

The period app Clue tracks ovulation, PMS and other symptoms of women's cycles using self-input data. But Clue aims to do more than gather data for individuals—it sees itself as a key source of women's health data, engaging in select research partnerships with universities, who use anonymized data to study topics like psychological changes around ovulation, and how periods affect the immune system.
In a tech world where data privacy has proven an ethical minefield, Clue’s founder Ida Tin is working to head off growing pains, constantly asking: How can Clue “put their treasure trove to use in a way that could help expand understanding of women’s health issues while fiercely protecting user privacy?” writes Macaela MacKenzie.
