Are you looking for a new bookmarking tool to help you get organized? There are many free options available, but only one has a central focus on privacy.
Clipix allows teachers and students to save everything in one central place. You can bookmark, or clip, just about anything to different clipboards in your account. Photos, videos, notes, websites, even emails — clip them all and have access to them anywhere you have internet access.
One thing that sets Clipix apart from other tools is its focus on privacy. By default, your clipboards are private and kept that way unless you decide otherwise. If you want to share a clipboard with others, you can decide to create a collaborative clipboard where others can contribute.
There are a lot of free bookmarking tools out there. If you'd like to learn about some other options, here are a few resources for you to check out. I recommend trying a couple of tools out that seem like they'd fit your needs before you decide which you will adopt permanently.
