Safe-T Group Launches New Malvertising Protection Product for Apple iOS Devices
HERZLIYA, Israel, Feb. 16, 2022 — Safe-T® Group Ltd. (NASDAQ, TASE: SFET) (“Safe-T” or “the Company”), a global provider of cybersecurity and privacy solutions to consumers and enterprises, today announced that it is building on the growing success of its consumer subscriber business with the launch of its latest product – Ad Blocker Pro, an anti-Malvertising (malicious advertising) solution.
Malvertising injects malicious or malware-laden advertisements into legitimate online advertising networks and webpages. Safe-T’s newest product, Ad Blocker Pro, bridges the gap between the Company’s consumer privacy and cybersecurity offering by providing two layers of protection – protecting users’ privacy by blocking ads and securing their devices from malvertising. The Ad Blocker Pro app is now available for download from the Apple App Store for iOS devices using the Safari browser.
By combining privacy and cybersecurity features, Ad Blocker Pro blocks the latest threats such as malware, spyware, and phishing from targeting iOS users while browsing. The app blocks all ads, together with their malicious elements, that may be activated when clicking on innocent-looking ads. By not displaying advertisements, the app prevents iOS users from being targeted by these threats. In addition to increasing a user’s privacy, ad blocking can increase browsing speeds and lower data transfer costs.
“We are excited to launch Ad Blocker Pro, our latest consumer product which combines our unique privacy and cybersecurity technologies into a single, easy-to-use solution for iOS users. Since our entry into the consumer market just over six months ago, we have successfully introduced a series of products which have quickly attracted thousands of paying subscribers. Ad Blocker Pro represents the next step in our ongoing commitment to the development of advanced protection and privacy tools designed to address the rapidly evolving threats and malicious attacks now impacting millions of consumers today,” commented Shachar Daniel, Chief Executive Officer of Safe-T Group.
