DALLAS, Aug. 29, 2012 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- NQ Mobile™ (NYSE: NQ), a leading global provider of mobile Internet services focusing on security, privacy and productivity, today announced the launch of NQ Mobile Vault for iPhone, bringing its award-winning Android privacy application to even more smartphone users.
NQ Mobile Vault for Android was launched earlier this year and has become a top app on Google Play with more than 3 million downloads and an average user rating of 4.5 of 5 stars.
Today, with the launch of NQ Mobile Vault for iPhone, consumers will have access to a number of unique features including Vault Camera, which allows consumers to take and then automatically save photos and videos directly within Vault, and SecureCam, an innovative security tool utilizing the iPhone's main camera to activate a hidden login panel.
"Our smartphones have become portable picture frames that we put into the hands of our friends, family members and colleagues every day," says Gavin Kim, Chief Product Officer, NQ Mobile. "To date, it's been an all or nothing proposition -- either you choose to share your phone and expose all your content or you keep it to yourself. NQ Mobile Vault offers the best of both worlds, allowing consumers the ability to create two distinct albums on their iPhones -- one for openly sharing and another, more private album, that is kept safely behind a password.
Some of the key features of NQ Mobile for iPhone include:
- Private Album: Easily transfer photos and videos from the iPhone album to Vault's secure and password protected album.
- Vault Camera: Helps to eliminate any possibility of leaving private content out in the open with its built in camera, which will automatically secure any photo and video it takes behind Vault's password protected album.
- Break-In Attempts Monitor (premium feature): Catch intruders in the act! Automatically photographs anyone who enters the wrong password into Vault (requires a front facing camera).
- SecureCam Login (premium feature): SecureCam login is an innovative security tool that uses the main camera of the iPhone to unlock and access NQ Mobile Vault content. To anyone attempting to snoop, when NQ Mobile Vault is first opened, it will simply open up to what appears to be a simple camera app. But when the camera is pointed at a solid background (like a hand or desk surface), a numeric keypad will appear, allowing users to login.
NQ Mobile Vault for iPhone is available as a free download on iTunes at http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/nq-mobile-vault-hide-pictures/id513852898?mt=8. For a limited time, users can purchase all three premium features of NQ Mobile Vault for iPhone for a special, bundled price of $1.99.
