  • Our spam detector automatically deletes suspicious accounts. To avoid deletion: MAKE introductory lists, DO NOT link to shady websites, DO NOT create multiple accounts, DO NOT create an account that is AD-like. Suspected spam accounts are deleted and NOT retrievable.


  • Listography is FREE from advertising. Your Listography is a personal tool for your autobiographical story and for reflection. It is your history. WE ARE NOT A CORPORATION. We will not mine, track or sell your data.


  • We are not iPhone snobs but Listography is not a company. We made this site in our spare time outside of our full time jobs. We don't have the resources or time to build an Android App. Maybe someday...
