SafeBox Privacy App Celebrates Its First Million Users
Award-winning private SMS App SafeBox has attracted over one million users.
Preventing leaks of information in the digital world is not easy and even less so in the mobile space, as cases of intercepted SMS and intrusions continue to make the headlines.
The SafeBox application gives organisations and individuals an easy way to keep their SMS communications private, by allowing users to send and receive private SMS, and create a private list of contacts, all of which is invisible in the normal phonebook and SMS folders of the phone.
Everything is stored in a PIN-protected area, making it inaccessible without knowledge of the PIN and if the phone is lost, stolen or just gets in the wrong hands for a while, nobody can read the messages sent or received or even see whom they were written to.
“We are delighted to have attracted our first million users. This reinforces our belief that privacy is indeed a concern for mobile users. ” said Philippe Joly, founder of SafeBox.
The company has focused its entry to market on consumers by making its application available on all popular App stores and creating a distribution network of mobile operators and content providers. The company is now turning to the Enterprise market to do the same.
“As companies increasingly need their staff to communicate privately about sensitive information such as passwords and codes, companies continue to create a growing pile of digital information shared simply by ways of normal SMS. Sites like WikiLeaks and the persistent leaking of confidential corporate information have brought the privacy issue to the forefront and SafeBox now offers a good solution” continued Philippe Joly, founder of SafeBox.
The use of SafeBox private SMS not only has a very low cost, but it is also easy to use within an organisation as company phones tend to be ordered by the company in bulk and therefore the application could be preloaded on all phones before they are delivered to the staff member, but it should be part of the company policy for departments where the leak of sensitive information could be damaging for the company.
