With the recent theft of private nude photos from many female celebrities protecting your privacy in the online world has become as important and as difficult a task as ever. Soon all cell phones will be smart phones and everyone around the globe will be using them for anything from commerce and banking to the sending of private pictures and messages.
Celebrities are not the only ones who need to be concerned. How many times have you heard it reported in the news that a high school kid or college student had his or her personal account hacked by bullies who revealed their most intimate secrets to their whole schools.
The app is part of a service that the company boasts protects users’ private online information by immediately sending an alert at the first sign of suspicious activity. This is the only service that offers users unprecedented control over their private information, ensuring the highest level of security by actively monitoring activity across multiple accounts, including Google and Yahoo! services, Facebook, Dropbox, Evernote, and more to come.
“Recent headlines highlighting the vulnerability of online information reinforces the importance of being proactive about guarding online accounts with tools that go beyond what big service providers can do, ” said Uri Brison, LogDog’s CEO and Founder. “LogDog is about putting control back in users’ hands and giving them the knowledge and power to protect their own information before major damage is done.”
LogDog’s intelligent technology, it asserts, can detect when hackers try to go from service to service or one user to the next using exploited credentials. Unlike online service providers that are limited only to the data in their domain, LogDog looks at the entire set of multi-service usage data from the user’s point of view in order to accurately identify any suspicious behavior. The LogDog system monitors online accounts and continuously scans various indicators that are associated with unauthorized access by taking into account a user’s routine across various devices and services.
