Two branded security apps to help keep customer's smart phone data safe
In an effort to offer better comprehensive security to its customers, U.S. Cellular announced today that it will partner with NQ Mobile to provide security apps to its 5.2 million customers. The partnership expands on a previous program that offered an app called "NQ Family Guardian" to customers, with two new apps called "U.S. Cellular Mobile Data Security powered by NQ Mobile™" and "U.S. Cellular Privacy Protector powered by NQ Mobile™". The apps will be free in the Play Store as branded options limited to the carrier's customers.
Together the apps aim to give customers protection from viruses, malicious URLs and other outside threats along with a security suite that offers secure encryption for photos, videos and other data users want to keep safe. On their own, NQ Mobile's self-branded versions of the apps have done well in the Play Store with high ratings and reviews, so U.S. Cellular certainly seems to have made a good choice here.
