Firm introduces app to curb cybercrime
in a bid to curtail the menace of cybertheft in nigeria and Africa, a mobile app, known as ‘Bizshield Africa App’, has been launched into the nigerian mobile industry.
A statement by the app producer said it would protect businesses from internet fraudsters and spur growth.
Already, it said the mobile app prelaunch had been held in Lagos.
The founder, Bizshield African App, Mrs Temitope Akintunde, said that the application was developed
to optimally solve problems associated with daily running of businesses in Africa.
She added that the nation remained an active player in mobile application industry.
She said, “Bizshield Africa’s App is an innovative app designed for daily online running of businesses in Africa, a combination of social media platform and global ecommerce site that is userfriendly for all businesses and services to track down fraudsters’ activities.”
Akintunde also noted,
“Statistics show mobile phone users grew to over 789.2m in 2019, a number that represent nine per cent of the world’s global internet business, hence, the need to curtail cybercrime fraudsters has become pertinent.”
She said Bizshield Africa app, planned for formal launch in March next year, was developed out of a lot of factors, which included the lack of adequate adverts for small businesses online; insecurity of online businesses; and hacking of accounts which hampered business dealings.
She said, “At least 100 persons are getting scammed per day around Africa, this figure may seem very small but imagine a platform like Bizshield where all of this is impossible.”
while speaking on the need for every organisation to subscribe to the app, Akintunde said, “with our four-in-one app, Bizshield Africa will help lots of businesses in Africa especially in Nigeria to flourish more online.”
