SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwire - Aug 1, 2012) - TrustGo Mobile Inc. (TrustGo), a leading mobile security company, announced today that its Android app has surpassed 1 million total user downloads from the Google Play marketplace. With an average star rating of 4.75 and more than 25,000 reviews, TrustGo Mobile Security continues to build momentum as one of the highest-rated security and antivirus applications on the platform.
Since its launch on March 2, 2012, the app has gained traction among Android users by providing enterprise-class security and privacy protection for consumers, all for free. With a simple TrustGo app download, users get full protection and eradication of mobile threats such as malware, spyware and viruses, as well as unique protection from risky apps that most other mobile security solutions miss, such as apps that can cause privacy breaches, personal data leaks and premium service charges through excessive permissions acquired by the app or the ad network used by the developer. In addition, TrustGo's patent-pending Secure App Finder Engine™ (SAFE) can help prevent the full range of mobile threats by giving users access to pre-screened security assessments of 2.2 million apps available on marketplaces worldwide within TrustGo's app search function.
"TrustGo stands out because our app delivers more security features than other companies' paid versions, all for free," says Jeff Becker, Head of Marketing, TrustGo. "Not only do we offer app security that catches privacy and identity leaks that traditional antivirus companies miss, we offer a complete mobile security solution that protects users in four other key areas -- web browser security, device security, data security and system management."
TrustGo Mobile Security is the only Android security app that provides five levels of protection for free:
- App Security - Secure App Finder Engine™ (SAFE) to help users discover safe, certified apps and offers industry-leading detection and elimination of malware and viruses, plus protection against privacy intrusions, data leaks, unauthorized payments and aggressive adware
- Device Protection - Device location (Find My Phone), remote lock, alarm and wipe
- Data Security - Cloud backup and restoration of contacts, SMS messaging and call logs
- System and Expense Management - Storage and memory management, data usage monitoring and alerts to avoid excess data charges
- Web Browsing Security - Detection and blocking of malicious and "phishing" sites
"July was a significant month for TrustGo. Not only did we reach this important milestone in just 5 months since our launch, our Secure Labs team discovered a dangerous new Trojan called Trojan!MMarketPay.A@Android," said Xuyang Li, CEO of TrustGo. "We are focused on giving users the most reliable, most advanced mobile solution and the best customer support in the industry."
