BEIJING, July 1, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- 360 Security, a mobile antivirus and performance application for Android users, reached a milestone today. The 200-millionth international Android user has downloaded the application. Released in June 2013, 360 Security's application is the only all-in-one free speed booster and antivirus app. With just one click, users can speed up their devices and extend battery life, or clean up junk files for bigger memory space, while protecting their devices from malware, adware, ransomeware, vulnerabilities or Trojans.

"Since launching on the Google Play store only two years ago, 360 Security app has become a top security application for Android users worldwide, ranking number one in 90 countries on Google Play Store's Tools Ranking," said Yan Huang, COO of 360 Security. "When we developed this app, we closely considered today's consumer needs and heavily weighed the importance of security and performance. Our application offers several factors to improve a users' mobile experience -- far beyond antivirus detection -- and we're pleased to reach the 200 million download milestone."

The 360 Security mobile application just surpassed 100 million users milestone earlier this year in February. It is not a big surprise that the user base was doubled in less than 5 months as the app has clear competition edge. It is the only one of its kind to combine all key features together in one app, as consumers nowadays prefer all-in-one security apps that meet multiple purposes of performance improvement, virus detection and privacy protection. Meanwhile, unlike peer products that adopt only one antivirus engine, the app is able to detect and remove virus completely in real-time through its unique double engine model: while the AVE engine serves as the pre-loaded database of virus samples, the cloud engine provides real-time internet scanning that ensures viruses are cleaned at the very first moment they are spotted.

Both current users and experts in the mobile security area spoke highly of the app's intuitive design. In fact, the app is strictly following Google's material design language. In his interview with Pluralsight, one of the largest creative and tech training libraries in the world, Chief User Interface Design Manager Shengmao Ye shared his understanding of user interface design, saying "adhering to the standard specifications of the Android platform gives the overall experience a high degree of unity, and greatly reduces learning costs for the user."

Serving more than 200 million users each day, the 360 Security app:

  • Cleans more than 50,000 terabytes of junk files;
  • Detects and alerts more than 16 million security flaws and risks;
  • Eliminates 4.6 million viruses; and
  • Extends 240 million hours of battery life for Android devices.

The 360 Security app currently is available, in more than 30 languages, for download in the Google Play store. To learn more about the 360 Security app or download it today, click here.
