According to Samsung in a statement; “Samsung Electronics, today introduced Samsung Max, a new and free Android application designed to promote mobile data savings and application privacy management, with data usage monitoring and enhanced Wi-Fi security. Starting on February 23th, 2018, the application will be available for download on Google Play on select Samsung Galaxy devices. Samsung Max supports the latest iteration of Samsung’s unique and easy-to-use features, ‘Data Saving Mode’ and ‘Privacy Protection.’ Samsung Max is replacing Opera Max – one of the largest mobile virtual private networks (VPNs) in the world – and now, its two key features are accessible to millions of more Samsung users.”
“All over the world, data has become a commodity, but many plans are simply still too expensive for consumers that want to get the most out of the latest technology built into their devices,” said Seounghoon Oh, Vice President Samsung R&D Institute India. “With Samsung Max, our users in every corner of the globe now have increased autonomy and control over their data usage and privacy in an era of rising security threats, fraudulent apps and user profiling.”
“At Samsung, we’ve been committed to creating inclusive data saving and privacy protection services for all our devices,” said Seounghoon Oh, Vice President Samsung R&D Institute India. “Because of this, we are now introducing Samsung Max to our mid-range devices as an exclusive and unique service that sets Samsung devices apart from the rest of the smartphone market”
Samsung Max will come preloaded on all Galaxy A and Galaxy J series smartphones in Nigeria, India, Argentina, Brazil, Indonesia, Mexico, South Africa, Thailand and Vietnam. Users will be able to download Samsung Max on other Samsung devices via Google Play or Galaxy Apps stores.
Samsung users that are currently using the third-party application, Opera Max, will receive an automatic upgrade to Samsung Max starting on February 23, 2018.
