NEW YORK, Nov. 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- You need a cleaner to look after you when accepting "permission requests." And now it is here, with the launch of MyPermissions (https://mypermissions.com/?utm_source=permissions_story), the cleaner that puts app security where it belongs: you.
All this year there has been a ton of research revealing how identity theft affects many more millions than originally thought, costing victims countless hours and money in recovery and repair. What causes online fraud? Combination of a lack of consumer knowledge regarding protecting one's identity online; growing comfort with, and trust in, social platform providers; the need for social platforms to generate revenue; and a lack of standards or policing of these standards.
That's where MyPermissions steps in.
MyPermissions automatically scans permissions - and alerts users when new apps gain access to personal info from the cloud. When a user wants to revoke new access, they simply communicate with MP in one click and the tool acts as a "cleaner" and rids them of insecure or unwanted permissions that have been unknowingly granted.
The thought behind MyPermissions, an Israeli-based startup, is that if granting permissions is a matter of a single click, then revoking and cleaning them should be that simple. Find out more when Olivier Amar, CEO and Co-Founder, is in NY next week (November 29 – December 1).
