Digital Secure App – Our Pick for The Best Privacy and Security Package from App Stores
- Web & App
Digital Secure is an online privacy and security app for smartphones and desktops developed by Verizon. When activated, it protects users from data breaches, malicious websites, and viruses.
The app also scans your Android device and minimizes the risk of downloading viruses, infected apps, worms, and malicious files that could harm your smartphone.
In addition to protecting users on Public Wi-Fi, the app’s premium version allows users to connect with security providers in real-time via a chat.

How Does Digital Secure App Work?
Digital Secure is an all-in-one security and privacy application that automatically detects the device for threats from online sources and local storage.
While this app scans the device every 24 hours and while users are accessing the internet, users can always run manual scans whenever they want to.
In addition to scans, Verizon detects spam for premium users.
The company’s A.I. bots search the online databases and identify if the premium user’s email id, phone number, social security, and tax numbers are associated with malicious databases.
The A.I working behind the Digital Secure app is powerful enough to tap into the core of the internet to secure the user’s data which means that it can crawl even the Dark web to search for the user’s information.
Moreover, the app generates warning alerts when:
- Users are browsing online and about to open a corrupted link
- Users browsing the app stores are about to download an app that contains viruses or potential threats
How does the Digital Secure app ensure protection from viruses and malware?
Well, it secures them by efficiently scanning the following content:
- Text and multimedia messages, emails, and attachments received
- Compressed and single files opened via local storage
Furthermore, the app also allows premium users to activate VPN protection – a tool that passes a user’s search queries from a private tunnel so that no online entity, including the network managers and Internet Service Providers, could detect what a user has searched or accessed online.

How much does Digital Secure App cost?
The basic version of the Digital Secure app is free.
However, the premium version of Digital Secure costs $5/month, which is a pretty nominal cost compared to other apps available in the Google Play Store.
In addition to buying the app, Verizon is also offering a Verizon account which the users can buy for $10 and secure all of their personal and professional Windows and Mac devices after synchronization.
Business Potential of Security and Privacy Apps
65% of users believe that digital privacy and security is a serious issue in society – which speaks volumes about users’ readiness for using digital security and privacy apps like the Digital Secure app from Verizon. As of now, the app has already surpassed 10 million downloads on the Google Play store.
That said, Antivirus programs and VPNs are the most common examples of security and privacy apps we have today, and most of these apps are free. Therefore, they have in-app purchases or advertisements, which are basically how these free apps earn revenue.
The Revenue Model Of Security Apps
The revenue model of free security apps usually depends on sponsored advertisements and data – which, according to privacy enthusiasts, is a complete antithesis of the purpose of these apps.
Imagine an app that offers a secure surfing experience over the internet. In return, the app collects and sells the user’s data to show products or ads based on the user’s activity. This practice would totally compromise the app’s core feature, which is to protect the user’s data.
Therefore, to provide real value to the users via a security app, Appreneurs can charge them monthly or annually in return for the privacy and security services that their app is providing to the users.
This alternate revenue model would be much more effective than promising the users optimum security while tracking their online activity to show them ads.
The Viability Of Privacy & Security Apps
Considering the growing awareness about digital privacy and net neutrality movements in the USA and European regions, privacy and security apps have huge market potential.

Here are 3 statistics that suggest cybersecurity will be a lucrative market for appreneurs:
- 35% of users believe that it is unacceptable to record and disclose user data (Epic).
- 83% of participants in a registered poll say that Congress should pass data protection legislation (Epic).
To understand the potential profitability of the market, here’s the growth estimation of the Cybersecurity products:
Global spending on cybersecurity products will cross 60 billion USD in 2021. Figures for the past 4 years show healthy steady growth in the trend. Spending in the Cybersecurity industry was 54 billion USD in 2020, 40.8 billion USD in 2019 from 34 and 36 billion USD in 2017 and 2018 (Statista).
Moreover, Statista also claimed that the global digital privacy and security market will grow by over 345 billion USD in 2026.
So, for an appreneur interested in developing a mobile app that offers internet privacy and security, here are the options:
- Develop and release an MVP integrated with only the core features, i.e., protection against malware and suspicious external resources.
- The application should scan the local storage of the smartphone.
- Develop an app like Bounce that tells which other apps in a user’s smartphone have granted data usage permissions.
- Develop an app that tells users which apps in the smartphone are sending data to external sources.
