  • Samsung Max App With Data Saving and Privacy Protection Features Released

Step forward Samsung, which said today that it has picked up the service and turned it into "Samsung Max" - as first spotted by VentureBeat. The apps packs same features of VPN and help reduce data consumption.

Samsung Max is effectively the same as Opera Max, though the Korean technology giant said that it will "improve" the data-saving and privacy-protection modes, and it has also given the interface and UX a bit of a spit shine. But in 2014, it launched the standalone Opera Max browser for Android, created to get its users more bang from their data plan, along with some VPN-like features.

Samsung Max will monitor the data an app uses to highlight those that are consuming the most bandwidth.

Samsung has rescued Opera Software's Opera Max data-saving, privacy-protecting Android browser app from oblivion and relaunched it today as Samsung Max. The app even allows you to block background data usage. This came as a huge blow to third world users as the app enabled users to manage data usage and observe which apps consumed data aggressively. It compresses webpages, photos, videos, and media within apps and browser to drop data consumption. There are, however, other security and privacy options, as well as tools for reducing data usage.

Privacy Protection Mode - Open, untrusted, and unknown Wi-Fi hotspots are secured and protected with one-tap encryption, tracker blocking and a DNS (Domain Name System) masking service.

It seems that Samsung has taken upon itself to bring the app from the dead.

The app will be preloaded on all the new smartphones of Galaxy A and Galaxy J series in the countries India, Brazil, Argentina, Mexico, South Africa, Nigeria, Indonesia, Vietnam, and Thailand. 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. The new browser will unsurprisingly be named Samsung Max, letting you know that while the company maintaining it may have changed, the mission of this browser is staying the same.
