Phone software pays £10 per month to run in the background

This has been all over the freebie websites and might be on here but I can't find it on the search.
You download software to your mobile and you can also download it to tablets and computers and it runs in the background, uses a bit of data but also works when you're on wifi and they pay you £10 per month in Amazon vouchers. I downloaded at start of June and they've sent me £50 in vouchers, not sure how this works as they say £10 per month so I shouldn't have that much. But I do and at this rate I'l have Christmas covered.
So far in the month and a half since I installed it it's used 1.3GB of data running in the background. There are varying reviews, some say they're hacking your info and some say it's just monitoring when you're watching videos and what you use your internet for.
Either way you could probably download it on an old phone you don't use, hook it up to wifi and just leave it running, watch a youtube video or two so they don't cut you off and you'll really be getting money for nothing and no risk that way.

I've been doing this for the last three months or so and they do pay up. If you read their T+Cs it is very intrusive, and it steals battery life.
I agree with the OP a spare phone is sensible, though frankly I've given up caring if people steal my info, I'm already running a cheap Chinese smartphone and have no cash or details worth stealing...

I have considered this before, leaving it running on an old (blank) phone with no personal data.
Pretty sure they'll have something in place to prevent people doing that though. But theres no way id put it on my personal phone.

Does the software ask you questions or just monitor what you do on your phone?

Seems to pay a bit too low if it's effectively opting in to being snooped on.

from what I can see it's just checking what you use your internet for, mainly to see how much you watch videos and tv etc. I've done work for the company before doing mystery shopping etc and I've never had any issues with them

that should work as long as you use it once or twice a week to show some sort of it activity though.

How do you register?


I can't post the link as it takes me straight to log in but if you search incompass it should give you the option to sign up

It's used 1.3gb of data in 6 weeks?? I'd say that's a helluva lot! Can't imagine it being that high without it uploading screenshots or even video.

Can't find a sign up, skips the page and goes to login

Their signup page (www.incompass.me.uk/signup) has had its form removed and their terms and conditions say they are now only inviting people through email links, unless you're invited you're out of luck. Cold sorry.

Says they do not need any more sign ups as they have reached their limit.

Xpression refused to pay out when I tried it, also terrible customer service. I was sceptical trying this too in terms of cash out they're good.

I agree unless you can install it on a 2nd phone that doesn't hold personal data. It sounds like given the consumption of data and battery life. This app is literally invading your life. Really worth it for £10 per month

As soon as i saw the app start recording audio i uninstalled. I read what they want from you in the sign up it's crazy.

tapjoy is nice, it adds adverts to your lock screen and you can earn a few $ a month

I had a £20 gift card from them after a fortnight

How does anybody know what data this company is obtaining and then selling on to third party co's from your shopping habits to your email log ins etc? As if they are giving out £10 a month they must be obtaining a lot of info to make the service pay for itself?

Exactly how clubcard works why do you think its worth £100 million there is money in peoples data! People shouldn't be so quick to sell their data for a few pounds a month

did this for a month and it absolutely killed my wifi. might be worth doing for £10 sign up you get after a week for some.

I have this on my Samsung S7 and taken battery life from 1.5 days to under a day so agree it is a real drain
