New Version of Trustlook Mobile Security App Has Host of Upgrades, Including ID Check

Mobile Security Innovator Broadens Protection for Consumers With Trustlook 3.0

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwired - December 18, 2015) - Trustlook Inc., a leading global mobile security provider for the Android platform, today announced improvements to its award-winning mobile security app, including payment protection and identity check integration for a more comprehensive suite of security options.

"Customers are demanding a complete security solution for their increasingly mobile lives," said Allan Zhang, founder and CEO of Trustlook, Inc. "With version 3.0, we've launched a series of enhancements to stay ahead of their expectations, and the ability to monitor their identity and protect their mobile payments will no doubt lead to even better overall interactions with users."

Trustlook's free identity check feature, named ID Check, was built in response to the increasing number of data breaches at large companies such as Target and Adobe. According to the Privacy Rights Clearinghouse, over 900 individual data breaches by US companies and government agencies have occurred since January 2005, which together have involved over 200 million total records containing sensitive personal information.

With ID Check, Trustlook users know whether they have been a victim of any past data breaches, and are alerted if they are involved in future breaches.

Trustlook's Payment Security feature discovers potential vulnerabilities in thousands of mobile payment apps, including online banking and e-commerce apps. "The urgency of mobile payment protection must not be understated," said Zhang. "More shopping is happening on mobile devices, and consumers need to be aware if they are at risk." According to IBM, 57 percent of all mobile sales on Black Friday of this year came from smartphones, and overall, smartphones were used to shop nearly two times as much as last year.

In addition to ID Check and Payment Security, the 3.0 version includes:

  • Antivirus Scan
    Scan and remove viruses, malware, and spyware
  • Speed Boost & Memory Cleaning
    Kill tasks that slow your phone with one simple click
  • Data Backup & Restore
    Back up your critical data including contacts, call logs and SMS messages
  • Find Phone & Anti-Theft
    Find your lost or stolen device through an alarm or on a map, and remotely wipe all data from a lost phone
