Hello Everyone,

So today I came across a new venture by the name of Verto Smart Panel. Similar to other concepts, they pay you in exchange for the ability to track your data usage.

The Deal
Verto will pay you $5 just for signing up, and another $10 once you've had the app installed for a week. Thereafter, they'll pay you $5 per month to continue tracking your usage. You can select to be paid via PayPal (immediate payment) or Amazon credit (24hr wait period.)

Now, I know many of you are going to get all types of opinionated and I'm already anticipating the comments of the "ridiculous/invasive permissions" and how your privacy "is worth more than $15!" To you folks I have two things to say:
  1. Your life probably isn't nearly as exciting or worthy of extra attention as you're thinking it is. Unless you're looking at things you're not supposed to, you have nothing to worry about. Stop crying.
  2. If you are on Android and rooted, you should download an Xposed module named XPrivacy. This app allows you to control/block permissions that you feel are unnecessary and/or invasive by returning "null" responses. It also gives you the ability to change (on an app-specific basis) identifying info such as serial number, IMEI, Android ID, etc.
Instructions

1. Sign-up at https://vertosmart.com.
2. Download app.
3. Collect $15 after one week.
4. Delete app.
**5. If using XPrivacy, it should be possible to redownload app with new identifying information, sign-up again, and cash out another $15 after the next week. However, this has yet to be verified.

Enjoy!

at the bottom of the page in the middle box it says this

(Note: to earn Smart Rewards you need to install the Smart App to all of your devices. Your standard data plan rates will apply.)

i was thinking of just intalling this on a tablet that i don't use, and then collect and delete the app. i this that will work but i feel i still don;t want to turn over my other personal info... anyone had prior experience with this?

Have to take a survey first, so I completed it with fake info and get this:

Thanks, but...

...we're afraid you do not qualify for the Smart Panel. We appreciate you taking the time to help, and are sorry that it didn't work out.

Feel free to check back at a later time - maybe you'll qualify then!

"read sensitive log data"
"reroute outgoing calls"
"directly call phone numbers"
"read your Web bookmarks and history"
"modify system settings"

Sensitive log data can sometimes contain passwords so be careful with any non-Google apps that ask for that permission. Only install this on a spare device that doesn't have any sensitive information.
