About Opter

We’re not just building a tech company — we’re building a lifestyle.

The Basics

We believe that habits should get more attention, that getting healthier should be simple, and that technology can be unobtrusive.

Mindfulness

We won’t sacrifice ethics for a slightly larger profit margin. We believe in doing our part to make the world a better place – whether it’s through eco-friendliness or human rights.

Privacy

You don’t have to choose between getting use out of your data and revealing it to the world. We use techniques such as strong encryption whenever we handle your data.

Transparency

Companies should work towards their users’ best interests. We’re committed to setting an example.
