SAN FRANCISCO, June 29, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- PSafe Technology, a leading provider of mobile security and optimization solutions for Android phones, launched a powerful, free DFNDR Assistant today, a new feature to the DFNDR app that improves performance and makes it easier for Android users to safeguard their phones. The dashboard gives users an easy fix to improve device operation and to see a clear visual representation of threats at the tap of an icon.
"Most people don't have a good sense of what threatens their device's security, power or speed, and even those who do don't want to spend time digging through reports, menus and settings," said Marco DeMello, founder and CEO of PSafe. "Our suite of security and performance tools gives Android users everything they need to protect themselves and their devices against hackers, malware, power drains and more. DFNDR Assistant provides the intelligence to make it all easy. It's a personal, always-on command center."
For five years, PSafe has safeguarded Android phones in Brazil, and has now expanded to the U.S. to bring its anti-phishing, antivirus and malware detection to the more than 100 million U.S. Android users. In December 2013, PSafe raised $30M Series D funding to capitalize on the growth of mobile app security globally and to establish headquarters in the U.S. to protect the highly sensitive data on smartphones — credit card numbers, passwords, photos and other personal or work-related details — from hacker attacks.
Additional Benefits for Android Users
With this app update, PSafe also adds enhanced performance features for Facebook Messenger users. In Brazil, PSafe helps three million users reclaim an average of 6MB of storage per day with its WhatsApp Cleaner. With growing adoption of Facebook Messenger, particularly in the U.S., this new Facebook Messenger Cleaner frees up phone storage space so that users can make space for the photos, videos and apps they really care about.
