San Francisco, CA, December 10, 2013 – MyPermissions, an innovative security technology company leading the conversation in regards to protecting personal information online, today announced a new version of their iOS app that streamlines the user experience and enhances real-time protection for those utilizing the iOS 7 platform. The latest version of MyPermissions’ iOS app integrates background scanning and alerts to help users be more aware of what apps and Websites are connecting to their information on-the-go.
“In today’s mobile world people are consistently downloading and utilizing a gamut of apps in order to stay entertained, connected and informed,” said Olivier Amar, CEO of MyPermissions. “However, as we become more app-centric, few people are fully aware of the personal information they’re sharing and the permissions they’re granting apps to act on their behalf. That’s why earlier this year we integrated background scanning and real-time alerts into our Android app. With the launch of iOS 7, we were able to extend that feature and provide more people with the ability to monitor, manage and control what apps and Websites have access to their personal information.”
The new version of MyPermissions’ iOS app stays alert for changes in peoples applications, scanning for when new apps and websites access user information. When a new app or website is detected, an alert is pushed to the user in real-time so that they can decide to accept or deny the request. The integration of real-time alerts ensures that users are aware of what services are accessing their information so that they can better protect themselves anytime, anywhere.
MyPermissions’ suite of security tools includes free mobile apps for iOS, Android and Kindle Fire, as well as a Web browser plugin that gives users real-time alerts whenever a new application connects. By monitoring all connected applications across social networking sites including Facebook, Twitter, Google, LinkedIn, Dropbox and more, MyPermissions give users control over the data that apps are able to access.
