Privacy Evaluation for slither.io

Last updated March 11, 2020

Overview

slither.io is an arcade-style game played against other people who are currently online at the same time. The main objective is to grow your snake into the biggest of the day by eating light pellets as you avoid other snakes slithering around the screen.This evaluation only considers policies that have been made publicly available prior to an individual using the application or service.

However, slither.io does not make their privacy policy, terms of service, or any additional data use agreements available from any easily discoverable link on their website. Without being able to access and review a product’s privacy and security statements, we are not able to provide a privacy evaluation of the product at this time. Furthermore, the login site does not use encryption to protect student data and is therefore not recommended.

                    About Privacy Evaluations

                    The privacy evaluations have been designed with the help and support of a consortium of schools and districts across the United States. These evaluations are designed to help educators make informed decisions about the potential privacy implications of educational technology used to support teaching and learning.

Vendors are encouraged to use our questions and the information security primer to self-evaluate. You can also learn more about our evaluation process.
