Keepsafe Adds 10 Million Users to its Privacy Apps

Rapid Growth Underscores Consumers’ Heightened Concerns Over Digital Privacy

May 15, 2017 — San Francisco, CA — Keepsafe, the leader in personal space protection, today announced that its customer base has grown by more than 10,000,000 new users within a period of approximately nine months. At the end of the first quarter, Keepsafe crossed this new milestone less than one year after the company announced it had reached the 50 million user mark.

Keepsafe is in the venerable position of being the #1 top grossing photo app in the U.S. on Google Play. And in the App Store, Keepsafe is the #3 top grossing app for iOS.

With the increase in mobile device hacking and identity theft to the recent U.S. law that allows ISP broadband providers to sell and profit from consumers’ personal data and online habits, digital privacy and security has reached a tipping point in American’s lives.

According to data findings last year by the U.S. Department of Commerce’s National Telecommunications and Information Administration, Americans are increasingly concerned about online security and privacy. Forty-five percent of Americans have changed their online behavior as it relates to sharing their personal views, conducting online purchases, or staying in contact with friends, family and others.

There’s a growing concern among U.S. consumers’ over the privacy of their digital content. A survey done in January by Pew Research found that roughly half (49%) of all Americans feel their personal information is less secure than it was five years ago.

Consumers have flocked to Keepsafe for more control over their digital privacy, the freedom to be themselves, and peace of mind. Keepsafe offers a suite of mobile apps, including Keepsafe Photo Vault and AppLock, which help people lockdown personal photos, videos, documents, and mobile apps. Keepsafe lets people safeguard private content by setting up a password-protected PIN code and using military-grade encryption.

“We’re glad that people are choosing Keepsafe’s apps to protect their personal lives. Keepsafe is committed to making digital privacy simple and accessible to everyone. When people have security and control over their privacy, they have real freedom to be themselves,” noted Zouhair Belkoura, CEO of Keepsafe.

Keepsafe’s mobile apps are available on iOS and Android platforms and are offered as free or premium versions.
