DAMA is a privacy-focused image annotation app that intelligently analyzes the text in images and automatically hide private information.

I often need to share screenshots and photos on social media and the web. But every time, I need to take the time to manually hide the privacy and text information in the image, which is not only troublesome but also ruins the beauty of the image.

DAMA was created to solve this problem in a more efficient way by automatically detecting.

- Phone, mobile number, email
- Face, QR code
- Name, place name, organization, company name
- Number, Car, Money, ID
- IP address

In addition to traditional annotation tools such as color bar, pixelation, blurring, marker, etc., Placeholder also provides a unique “Hide Text" tool that allows you to completely hide text in a image if the background is nearly solid.

# Privacy Policy

Thanks to the powerful CoreML and Vision framework, DAMA uses on-device detection. It won't upload any of your images.

We will continue to optimize the intelligent rules of Placeholder and hope that it can help you protect your privacy more efficiently.

Cannot choose text

Cannot seem to choose text precisely, either the app determines which texts to redact, or you can choose a entire line, it doesn’t let you precisely choose texts to redact.
