About this app

New York City’s solution to protect its residents from cyber threats to their mobile devices and tablets. NYC Secure puts your privacy first: no data leaves your device.

Brought to you by NYC Cyber Command, NYC Secure alerts users to cyber threats such as:

● unsecure or “rogue” Wi-Fi networks;
● hijacking online transactions; and,
● phishing detection and education tools.

The app alerts you to threats and recommends ways you can protect your data and device.

You have the option to enable a VPN in the NYC Secure app to verify if suspicious links sent to you through text, email, a messaging app, or social media are safe or a possible phishing attempt.

Downloaded this thinking it was a security app like Citizens as I am using them for work projects. It isn't and that is okay, I thought I would use it for the features that protect your phone. NOT WORTH IT! It consumes too much battery power! Thought something was wrong with my phone and am relieved I don't have to replace it as I like the nostalgia of having a note9.

Same as others are reporting, over the last few months the has started drain in ng my battery, as of this morning this app was responsible for 44% of battery usage in the last 24 hours. That said I've had this installed on my last three phones and like the functionality it provides... But not the recent battery eating behaviour.

Not very good at doing its job! My browser which is Google's chrome keeps getting hijacked by a piece of malware thats pretty common called trusted push thats been around for a while on the net. It didn't even detect it and that piece of malware has been around for a while. So c'mon NYC SECURE if you can't even protect my phone from this I don't feel like its worth giving a positive recommendation.
