Samsung launches Samsung Max to save mobile data and enhance privacy
Samsung has introduced a new app called Samsung Max which is designed to help users stay under the limits of pricey mobile data packages and benefit from enhanced privacy features for free.
Samsung Max is replacing Opera Max which was pre-loaded on several Galaxy handsets – and now, its two key features are accessible to millions of more Samsung users. These include the following:
- Data Saving Mode – Data Saving Mode makes your data plan work harder and go further. In some cases, it can even be used to help you save money on your mobile data plan over time. The feature offers smart advice on which applications are consuming the most data, and constantly scans for data saving opportunities. When possible, it can even actively compress images, videos, music files, and webpages in your apps and browser. Users can also manage data permissions for specific apps and enjoy peace of mind with automatic background data usage blocked for all apps, tailoring data consumption to meet each user’s needs.
- Privacy Protection Mode – Open, untrusted, and unknown Wi-Fi hotspots are secured and protected with one-tap encryption, tracker blocking and a DNS (Domain Name System) masking service. These three features also offer privacy benefits on mobile networks, which enables Samsung Max to offer privacy protection on Mobile or Wi-Fi across all of your apps. This allows users to more securely access the internet from whichever connection is available, helping users stay connected on the go.
The Samsung Max will be preloaded to Galaxy A and Galaxy J series smartphones in select countries, and is now available for download on the Google Play Store.
