FAQ

Rivet is a new, experimental reading app and library of content designed for families with readers in Kindergarten through 2nd grade.
Rivet is free! The app and the books in the app are completely free to use. Offering a wide variety of free reading content is core to our mission of improving reading practice for early readers.
Rivet is currently in beta, which means we're still actively developing the app, testing new features and rapidly changing the product to make it better. We've released the app in beta to gather feedback and iterate quickly. This means that you'll see new features and improvements in performance and stability with each update.
Rivet is built by a small team from Area 120 — a workshop for experimental products. Our mission is better independent reading practice for early readers.
Currently, Rivet offers English language books for readers in the US, Canada, India, Australia and New Zealand.
Rivet is supported on mobile phones, tablets and Chromebooks. Devices must be running either Android 5.0 or iOS 9.0 or higher.
Not currently. Rivet should be installed on a parent's device and a parent should log in with their Google account. You may set up individual profiles within Rivet for each child in your family. Support for Family Link and G Suite for Education accounts is coming soon - stay tuned!
Yes. Protecting user data, and especially data from children, is core to our mission. We closely follow COPPA best practices according to the FTC. For this reason, we require parental consent before granting access to our app.
To respect your privacy, Rivet collects the minimum amount of data necessary to operate: basic information about your Google account (if signed-in), your device, your children's profile and activity (if signed-in), and your children's voice capture to provide search and reading help.
No, the data collected is only used to help us provide children with a better reading experience in the app.
