  • No API request stores any identifiable information sent.
  • All requests are sent securely with HTTPS.
  • All features which make requests can be disabled in settings.
  • The weather feature of Mue only stores your inputted location (or estimated when clicking on 'Auto') locally, and it is only sent in a request to get the current weather in your area. This request cannot be linked to you in any way and is sent through our opensource proxy server ( to our weather provider (OpenWeatherMap).
  • The photo map location feature of Mue will send a request with the information of the photo shown to Mapbox.
