Chinese mobile internet giant Alibaba Group has announced the launch of Privacy Knight, India’s first free app-lock with Face Lock feature that protects mobile privacy from intruders.

Currently available on Android, the app is equipped with face lock, the fastest and most accurate unlock solution in the world, which enables users to unlock their protected apps through a one-second-selfie.

“Face Lock is set to change the way people protect their privacy. It’s the next big thing after fingerprint lock. The age of Face Lock is here,” said Country Manager of 9Apps (Android Marketplace within Alibaba Mobile Business Group), Ebrahim Popat.

With the boost of smartphone utilization, India is now the largest consumer market for security app in the world. Such tremendous demand indicates a strong need for better privacy protection.

“Indian users are particularly concerned about security of their private photos and SNS apps on their phones. On the other hand, with predictable popularization of mobile payment, the need for mobile financial security protection will also surge in the foreseeable future. Privacy Knight provides Indian users with an enjoyable and trustworthy privacy guard for their smartphone security,” said Director Alibaba Mobile Security Department, Shuhua Chen.

Simple yet reliable, the security app works on a one-second-step for face locking, saving users the trouble to remember patterns/pincode. Meanwhile, the Face Lock and Blink Detection setting ensure a 99.47 percent accuracy of face recognition, more precise than any other recognition models in the world.

What makes Privacy Knight even safer is that no user information upload is requested, since Face Lock is accessible offline.

Besides face lock, Privacy Knight also offers users excellent protection including app lock, vault, clean, themes, intruder selfie, fake cover, fake icon, and more.
