Mobile security apps rule download charts globally

According to a latest report released by the leading app ranking firm App Annie, on the 2015 global mobile app market, 5 out of the top 10 most downloaded apps in India are mobile security apps. This is a rather interesting fact considering the recently publicized discussion paper floated by TRAI (Telecom Regulatory Authority of India) which claimed that mobile apps could jeopardize national and individual security, and also at a time when a nationwide debate around ‘net neutrality’ rages on.

Among the most downloaded mobile security apps, the recently launched LEO Privacy Guard, a product of LEOMASTER has been ranked in the top mobile application tools in several popular smartphone markets like India, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand and Russia. The app has made it to the top 5 in the mobile app market in these countries, and is ranked 10th in overall performance. In India, the app is ranked #1 in the Google Play Top App Charts and is the highest ranking mobile security app.


Since the app’s global launch in November 2014, it boasts of tens of millions of loyal users around the world. The security app’s latest edition, LEO Privacy Guard 2.0, which was released in April 2015, has in fact been downloaded 10 million times within several days after its release.
