About Us

We believe you deserve to make more memories. 

We live in the attention economy, where your time is money. Unpluq empowers you to take control of how you spend your time: with intention--and to make time for the things you care about most.

We want you to enjoy life more calmly, joyfully and mindfully. We want you to have more time to focus on what’s meaningful to you.

At Unpluq we design products that help people live a richer life with the devices in their lives, with privacy in mind. We are not storing any of your data: you are not the product.


Our mission

To empower you to use technology to enhance your life, without stealing it.


The way we’re using our devices is harming our wellbeing. Unpluq helps you live in balance again.


The Unpluq Team

We are a small team of engineers (Jorn Rigter, CTO) and creatives (Caroline Cadwell, CEO) working remotely from Rotterdam and Barcelona, each with a unique connection to the problems Unpluq solves.

By making your tech work for you again, our goal is to help you live your fullest, best life. We want you to be able to spend your time in the way that’s most meaningful to you.


Our story

We love technology and have backgrounds in tech, software, product design and more, but we realized there is an ongoing problem with context switching, how we use our time, and how we feel about the way we used our time at the end of the day.

Sometimes, the activities we spend the most time doing are not only unnecessary but actually bring us very little joy. Mindless scrolling is one of the top offenders. Using our smartphone less is something we strive for, but also struggle with. Each of us has a personal connection to the problem we’re solving.


Unpluq Hall of Fame

Unpluq started out as a kickstarter project, if you are curious you can see it here. Thanks to all the 263 kickstarter backers without you this wouldn’t have been possible!
