Digital Trends Panel Review

Digital Trends Panel is a metering app sharing data such as your browsing behaviour. In return, you’ll get the opportunity to earn rewards. The browser add-on or mobile app works silently in the back of your browser and does not impact speed or disrupt your browsing experience. In contrast to filling out standard online surveys, it’s a simple passive way to earn extra income by sharing your online data.

Daniel Williams Reviewer

Andrew: Andrew is one of our reviewers who’s been with HuginX the longest. With a background in membership support at one of the largest survey companies, Andrew has a lot of inside knowledge of the Market Research industry and has helped us refine our reviewing criteria. When Andrew is not working with reviews, he likes to go hiking with his dog Charlie. 

How do I get started?

If you like to participate in GfK Digital Trends Programme, you must answer a few questions about yourself on the registration form. If you meet GfKs criteria for participation, you will be approved as a new panellist and will need to install the GfK’s Digital Trends Programme software(s) on your main smart device(s)

Installing the software

Install GfK’s Digital Trends software or app on your PC, laptop, tablet or smartphone, and you will be entitled to earn points. You can also earn extra installation points by installing GfK’s Digital Trends software on more than one device. Also, you can receive weekly points as long as you are an active member of the panel. Active means you must have the app successfully installed, open and running in the background of your device while browsing the web.

What about my data – are they safe?

The GfK Digital Trends Program monitors media and internet use by analyzing user logs and browser history. In addition to mobile platforms, the GfK Digital Trends program measures consumer behaviours on other platforms. While the GfK Digital Trends app collects general app usage information, you may opt-out if you do not want the information stored on your device. However, you should be aware that disabling data access may affect your panel participation.

GfK uses unbiased user data to gather information on online trends. Users provide GfK with their email addresses and password so that their personal information will not be exposed. The data are used in market research studies and not for marketing purposes. Using the GfK Digital Trends app rewards you for allowing the company to conduct research and analysis.

Swagbucks Review Summary
Swagbucks is one of the grand old ladies of the online survey world. Here it's all about quantity; the more surveys you take, the more rewards you accumulate. Expect to wade through a ton of screenout questions which you'll never get paid for though. And when you do get rewarded, the incentive is usually very low.

Our Values

We built HuginX around our core principles of openness, honesty and transparency. Your trust is of the utmost importance to us, which is why we’ll always be straight-up about how we review sites.

When it comes to running our website, we want to be entirely upfront about how we operate, how we make money, and how we keep the site a free resource for our millions of visitors.

We don’t accept payment to provide positive reviews, and providers will never have a say in how we choose the best sites. Our aim is to put you, the reader, first and foremost at all times. 

A list of practices we never engage in:

  1. We will never accept money to review a product
  2. We will never accept money to change a product review
  3. We will never accept money to turn a blind eye to an issue or flaw
  4. We will never accept money to bias our research or investigations
