Today marks a momentous occasion for digital privacy.
First off, we would like to thank you all, for your continued support and believing in us to help create a better future for all the generations of internet users to come. This has been an incredible journey - we started out as an idea backed by a group of volunteers running on pure love and enthusiasm. Two years later we are a fully operational multinational business rolling out commercial-grade solutions where human rights are baked into the foundation of our architecture and design.
We are simply overjoyed to now be able to deliver to you, the first piece of our Panquake pie!
Introducing Pnqk.me our new link cleaning, shortening and archiving service!
Panquake Me allows you to share links safely to your family and friends, without fear of tracking and mapping of your entire network. Did you know, that simply forwarding on a link you could be tracking your entire network of family, friends and community? Ever share a link on a ‘sensitive’ topic, to only have sent them to a dead link? You send people nowhere, while Big Tech have tracked and mapped out who you sent that link to.
With Pnqk.me you can now share with no fear and more clicks!
This is a game-changer, set to disrupt the way we share content online. As promised and staying true to our mission, our Panquake team is delivering products that respect user privacy. Panquake Me is the very first tool hot off the oven, that resets the status quo to give users back their rights to privacy!
How can you tell we’re the real deal? Because we’ve released our source code! Available now for vetting by security researchers and the public.
Pnqk.me: Faster – Freer – Forever
Panquake Me has three great functions:
1. Strips your links of any marketing or ad trackers,
2. Archives the original link so it never disappears, and
3. Shortens the link
All within one simple click!
It’s a free service that is available to everyone because we all deserve to protect not only our rights to privacy, but those of our neighbours. Let’s keep the internet safe for everyone. Check out our team announcing this amazing product delivery below.

What our Founder and Chief Product Officer, Suzie Dawson, had to say:
"For too long journalists, activists and the general public have had to fear the links they share and receive. Never knowing what was really hidden inside a link or whether the content would still be accessible in the future.
Recognising the urgency, we sliced off a piece of the cake of our Panquake technology to bring forward an early release of our application, in the solution that is Pnqk.me - a simple, free, link sharing and archiving tool in one, that’s safe for you to use. This is a big win for internet users the world over, reducing the fear of digital profiling from big corporates and governments who map your networks, of who you share content with." - Suzie Dawson, Founder and Chief Product Officer, Panquake
Trackers and Your Data
Trackers collect and store your browsing activities when you share a link and permanently associate you with the activities of anyone who then clicks on those links. This data is known as ‘social network analysis data’ or ‘social graph data’ and can be used in ways which you probably won’t know about and therefore can’t consent to.
The data is frequently packaged and sold to Big Data companies, other social networks or corporations across a wide range of industries, and even to governments and intelligence agencies.
Panquake Me: Technology with a Difference
Using Pnqk.me when you share links helps to protect you, your family, your friends, your communities, your audience from having your personal data captured and exploited.
Our Chief Technology Officer, Sean O'Brien, said:
“We don’t record identifiers about you or anyone who clicks on Panquake Me links. When you provide a link, we save the scrubbed URL and a time-stamp. All of our source code is Free and Open-Source Software (FOSS), so security researchers and the public can verify this. I’m proud to be a part of Panquake’s international team that’s driving these ethical solutions to protect users.” - Sean O’Brien, Chief Technology Officer, Panquake
Pnqk.me is the first link shortening service that cleans your link and archives the original source content all in one easy step. Other link shortening services can actually be used to track your activity or the activity of those who you share links with. Ours does not.
We have gone above and beyond by utilizing smart, innovative and transparent software development practices to better protect you and those you share links with.
Panquake Me and the Panquake BETA
We know you are eager for the Panquake social network BETA, as are we! We have an amazing team working every day to make that happen as quickly as possible. The technology behind Pnqk.me is actually the first slice from the Panquake pie! Panquake uses Panquake Me to share clean, short archived links, from and within the app.
Because we know you’re dying to get your hands on our service, we decided to carve off and deliver our first slice of Panquake to you right now, with Pnqk.me. While we continue working hard on our network and blockchain build, this is the first of our early releases to you.
Panquake Me is proof that we can engineer real solutions and together start making a difference.
It’s easy to forget that privacy is actually a fundamental human right. We’ve all learned to access ‘free’ services to communicate to your family and friends, where the trade-off is your right to privacy. Pnqk.me is living proof that you can have both. Faster, freer and forever. You can provide a free service and choose not to track people. You can provide a service that respects people’s right to privacy. You just have to be a part of the solution that provides it.
We are on a mission to restore your human rights, through Panquake, one build at a time. We hope you share widely using Panquake Me, for a safer today for you and those of your neighbours.
Be the change and spread the word that a brighter future is here.
