Snap Secure Mobile, Personal and Family Security App Launches in the United Kingdom

Comprehensive Security Solution Delivers Peace of Mind for Android, BlackBerry Users

PRINCETON, N.J. and CAMBRIDGE, England, Nov. 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Snap Secure® (www.MySnapSecure.com), Snap MyLife, Inc.'s rapidly growing cloud-service mobile and personal security application for consumers and families, is now available in the United Kingdom via an automatic carrier billing option provided by mobile payment and analytics leader Bango. The agreement allows Snap MyLife, Inc. to deliver convenience and peace of mind to consumers and their families throughout the UK.

With thousands of mobile devices lost or stolen in the UK each year, mobile security is a concern. The issue is compounded by the fact that new technological capabilities mean people are increasingly relying on their mobile devices to conduct daily activities involving sensitive information, such as banking and personal communications. This leaves them vulnerable if that information falls into the wrong hands when a device is lost or stolen.

Snap Secure addresses these issues and more by providing a broad range of protection for smartphones, including backing up and restoring data; preventing viruses, spyware and spam; protecting and managing privacy; tracking and locating family members in real-time; locating and remotely controlling lost or stolen phones and tablets; and wiping data remotely.

To illustrate just some of Snap Secure's comprehensive security features, the application enables users to remotely control a lost or stolen smartphone by locking the device to protect important data and contact information or wiping all data contained in the phone to prevent unauthorized access. Snap Secure leverages smartphone GPS technology to help parents keep tabs on their child's whereabouts by tracking their mobile device location on a map via their convenient web dashboard. Parents can also use the Snap Secure Geo-fence to establish virtual geographic boundaries for their children and receive alerts when a child leaves the area or does not arrive at a specified location within a designated time period. Users receive all this and much more with their monthly or annual subscription.

The Snap MyLife, Inc.-Bango partnership gives UK mobile device users a quick, convenient way to access this critical protection. UK customers can purchase Snap Secure for Android phones and tablets and BlackBerry phones. Fees for the service are simply added to the users' monthly mobile phone bill.

"Protecting personal data and securing mobile devices is a concern everywhere as people become more dependent on their technology assets," said Jiren Parikh, President and CEO of Snap MyLife, Inc. "We're excited to work with Bango to offer consumers in the UK a complete family and data security solution."

"Snap Secure offers UK consumers the peace of mind they need to confidently use their mobile devices without concerns about theft, loss or viruses," noted Ray Anderson, CEO and Founder of Bango. "We're looking forward to working with Snap MyLife, Inc. to provide customers with a frictionless payment experience, via their mobile operator."

Snap Secure has been downloaded more than 2 million times and is a popular choice for consumers worldwide. In addition to the UK, Snap Secure is currently available in Italy, Spain and the U.S. with additional global market launches in process.
