PRINCETON, N.J. and CARACAS, Venezuela, Jan. 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Snap Secure® (www.MySnapSecure.com), Snap MyLife, Inc.'s rapidly growing cloud-service mobile and personal security application, will soon be available in Venezuela under a new partnership with Corporacion Copycorp C.A., a Venezuelan-based technology distributor with extensive experience in the Latin American market.
Technology device theft and related crimes are a growing concern in Venezuela. A government study found that within the last three years, approximately 2.5 million devices were stolen in the country, with smartphones the device stolen most often (110,000 per month). In Caracas alone, more than 400 phones are stolen per day, about half of them smartphones, and the black market value for stolen phones is approximately $400 million USD per year. The government attributes an increase in homicides to phone theft incidents and notes that 70 percent of all stolen items in the country are cell phones.
Families in Venezuela are understandably alarmed by this growing problem, which is why Snap MyLife Inc. has partnered with Corporacion Copycorp to offer new device security options. Snap Secure provides the most comprehensive mobile device and family security solution on the market for consumers, offering 24/7 protection for every member of the family under a single subscription. The cloud-service application delivers broad security protection, including real-time tracking and location of family members; a panic button feature; remote location and control of lost or stolen phones and tablets; and remote data wipe capability.
"Mobile security is a concern for device users worldwide," said Jiren Parikh, president and CEO of Snap MyLife, Inc. "And given the spiraling incidence of mobile device theft, compromised and lost data, as well as family safety issues in Venezuela, we're pleased to partner with Corporacion Copycorp and deliver the tools consumers and families need to stay safe and protect their personal data."
Snap MyLife, Inc. has fostered Snap Secure's rapid expansion, having recently launched the app in several European markets in addition to its U.S. operation, and the company is actively planning more global market launches. The Snap Secure app has already been downloaded more than two million times.
