Alibaba Group has announced the launch of Privacy Knight app with Face Lock feature that protects mobile privacy from intruders. Privacy Knight enables users to unlock their protected apps through a 1-second-selfie. Privacy Knight is currently on Android and is available now for download.

Ebrahim Popat, Country Manager of 9Apps, says, “Face Lock is set to change the way people protect their privacy. It’s the next big thing after fingerprint lock. The age of Face Lock is here.”

Shuhua Chen, Director, Alibaba Mobile Security Department, says, “Indian users are particularly concerned about security of their private photos and SNS apps on their phones. On the other hand, with predictable popularisation of mobile payment, the need for mobile financial security protection will also surge in the foreseeable future. Privacy Knight provides Indian users with an enjoyable and trustworthy privacy guard for their smartphone security.”
