A pair of personal data management companies has announced a merger, TechCrunch reports. Digi.me and Personal have both created apps allowing users to securely store and share their data. While the terms of the merger have yet to be announced, the two companies will unite under the Digi.me name. Digi.me asks the user where in the cloud they want their personal data stored. The only option is currently Dropbox, but the company plans to expand their services in the future. From there, the app will connect with personal data points and will be stored on a temporary virtual machine instance located on Microsoft’s Azure cloud. When a third-party app seeks to access personal data, it authenticates through the Digi.me app, giving users the ability to explicitly agree to the request.
