As a first step to ensure consumer safety in all connected products, the Me2B Alliance has developed an open safety standard for mobile apps and websites.
The Me2B Safe Spec for Respectful Technology is a set of tests designed to guide and enable technology-makers to build safe, respectful digital products. Over the past three years, the Me2B Alliance has spearheaded the development of the open specification within a Working Group of expert technologists, engineers, social scientists, and researchers.
The current version focuses on mobile apps and websites and encompasses only a portion of the harms outlined in the complete Me2B Digital Harms Dictionary. As the safe specification evolves subsequent versions will grow to include more of the harms identified in the Me2B Digital Harms Dictionary.
Below you will find links to all the downloadable files comprising the Me2B Safe Spec for Respectful Technology v1.0.
