Mobile security matters, and that’s why Motorola is adding four new features to Moto Secure, the go-to destination for all vital security and privacy features on your phone. The update allows users to feel confident in their data privacy, even in theft situations, protected against hackers while surfing the web, and comfortable in identifying device vulnerabilities and storing important files. Plus, it’s already available on Motorola’s latest devices, including the motorola edge 40 neo, moto g84 5G and moto g54 5G.
Over 5 million people have used Moto Secure in the last month, prioritizing tools like Secure Folder and PIN Scramble. Motorola’s new suite of features enhances these capabilities and more, delivering additional protection, regardless of the circumstance. Find out more about the consumer benefits:
1. Secure Folder for Files
Secure Folder makes it easy to hide sensitive apps, files and documents by giving the option to add a password or disguise the folder with a different name or icon, so it’s not easily accessible or detectable. The user can even turn on “Stealth Mode” in settings to make the folder invisible in the app tray.
Secure Folder for Files is ideal for consumers looking to backup important files, including health records, confidential work presentations and financial papers but don’t want them visible on their device.
2. Auto Lock
Auto Lock was designed to protect users’ data. Using GPS and Bluetooth disconnections for tracking, Auto Lock detects when the phone has been accessed outside of trusted places and devices. It then automatically locks the device to help keep information safe and secure.
For example, if a commuter’s phone is stolen while using public transportation or a user forgets their unlocked phone at a coffee shop, they can lean on Auto Lock to help safeguard their sensitive data.
3. Phishing Detection
Phishing Detection uses AI to warn Motorola consumers about potential threats associated with suspicious links or websites – before they even open the page. This also applies to opening links within third party apps, so users stay better protected across platforms.
When users receive a message from a credible-looking source, like their bank, and click on an embedded link, Phishing Detection flags the URL and the riskiness of the website. This provides crucial alerts to users so they can avoid sharing personal information with cybercriminals.
4. Security Scan
Security Scan does the privacy work for consumers, getting ahead of potential threats by scanning the device’s firmware and then providing security recommendations. This helps prevent the phone from being jeopardized by malicious software.
Security Scan is valuable for users who want to be proactive and stay up-to-date with their mobile security but don’t know where to begin or what to look out for.
The new Moto Secure App features will be available on select Motorola devices that support Android™ 13 or greater.
