Cyber Safety Advocates SnoopWall and Miss Teen USA 2013 Partner to Protect the 2014 Miss Teen USA Contestants

SnoopWall and Cassidy Wolf Share Leading Edge Privacy Tips and Warn That Smartphone Apps Violate Personal Privacy via Webcam, Microphone, GPS and other Ports

NASHUA, N.H., Aug. 1, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- SnoopWall (www.snoopwall.com), the world's first counterveillance software company, announced the launch of a public awareness campaign at the 2014 MISS TEEN USA® Pageant (www.missteenusa.com) today. This campaign continues the partnership between SnoopWall and Miss Teen USA 2013, Cassidy Wolf.

Wolf, who is attending the pageant preparations in Paradise Island, Bahamas, was a personal victim of cyber-exploitation. Wolf's smartphone applications, including her Facebook and Instagram accounts were breached and despite using the latest antivirus software her computer's webcam and microphone were hacked.  She is now a strong supporter of SnoopWall.

She is passionate about educating the 2014 MISS TEEN USA® Pageant contestants and officials about how to protect themselves from "cybersnoops" and online predators while using their smartphones and tablet computers. Her tips can be viewed at teentips.snoopwall.com

In addition to advocating the use of SnoopWall, which is a new type of essential mobile security software, Wolf also presented a specially designed, hackproof, waterproof, and spyproof case donated by SnoopWall and PrivacyCase™ (privacycase.snoopwall.com) to each of the 51 contestants at the pageant's orientation.

Wolf said "I thought I was protected by antivirus and other security software, but, in fact, I wasn't. SnoopWall's privacy software now helps me stay safe. It's free, easy to use and helps families, especially teens, become more aware of the dangers of being spied upon, like I was."

"If a 19 year old hacker can break into Cassidy Wolf's computer and spy on her, what do you think serious cyber crime rings are doing when you try to access your bank account from your phone?" said Gary S. Miliefsky, SnoopWall CEO.  He went on to say "with antivirus failing, with apps spying, mobile devices are very risky for ANY member of your family to take into private places (shower, bathroom, etc.) and to use for private transactions (banking, ecommerce, etc.)."

This public awareness campaign also coincides with the global release of Privacy App™ for Android platform mobile devices available starting August 5, 2014 at the BlackHat 2014 hackers' conference in Las Vegas, NV.  SnoopWall developers plan Apple iOS and Windows releases in September 2014.
