Samsung introduces Samsung Max Android app for data saving and privacy protection

Samsung saves Opera Max browser app from the deadpool

Step forward Samsung, which said today that it has picked up the service and turned it into "Samsung Max" - as first spotted by VentureBeat. For this, the app scans the device and checks for those apps that are consuming data.

Several years ago, Opera launched Opera Max which for those unfamiliar, is an app for mobile devices that was created to help reduce data consumption and also provide users with VPN-like features.

Samsung has revealed that it's taking over the duties on Opera Max, giving it a new name in the process.

Opera Max lives on after Samsung acquired the mobile browser to save it from oblivion. This data saving app has returned, and it's now called Samsung Max. Opera Max can also block background processes to conserve battery and data. It compresses webpages, photos, videos, and media within apps and browser to drop data consumption.

Trumps asks why Russian Federation probe doesn't include Obama administration
However, " there is no allegation in the indictment that it had any effect on the outcome of the election ", Rosenstein admitted. Nothing makes Trump more defensive than the suggestion that he owes his victory to Russian President Vladimir Putin .

The new app is based on the popular features of Make for India initiative of Samsung. You can view privacy reports to see how the app adds security to other apps and network connections. With the app's Privacy Protection mode, the open and unknown Wi-Fi hotspots will be protected with a single-tap encrypt. Likewise, there are features such as tracker blocking and DNS masking to offer a secured Web browsing experience. No details are available as to whether Samsung paid anything for the app, but given that Opera was going to shutter the service anyway, it's likely Samsung paid very little - if anything - to take it over. However, even if you have a good chunk of data a month to play with, the app can still be downloaded via Google Play or Galaxy App Stores to provide some control over the amount of cellular data your device sends.

Samsung Max will come preloaded on all Galaxy A and Galaxy J series smartphones in India, Argentina, Brazil, Indonesia, Mexico, Nigeria, South Africa, Thailand and Vietnam.
