Apr 29, 2015

SAN FRANCISCO, April 29, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Cheetah Mobile Inc. (NYSE:CMCM, "Cheetah Mobile"), the world's largest mobile tools developer, today announced that its top-rated security app CM Locker now provides smartphone owners with additional privacy protection. In addition to the existing pattern and password unlock features, CM Locker now offers a fingerprint to unlock function for Samsung's Galaxy S6 / Edge devices.

CM Locker specializes in helping smartphone owners enjoy simple, safe, and quick actions from their lockscreens. Today's mobile world has left people increasingly worried about securing private information – such as photos, online banking passwords, cloud storage, and social media – on their phones. Anticipating the needs of smartphone users, Cheetah Mobile launched the CM Locker phone lock application toward the end of 2014. Since launching on Google Play, CM Locker has been downloaded over 5 million times with an average user rating of 4.6 stars, making it the highest-rated locker app on Google Play.

"CM Locker is the market's first unlocking app that works with Samsung's Galaxy S6 / Edge fingerprint feature," said Cheetah Mobile Vice President Liu Guifeng. "To go with CM Locker's existing pattern and password unlock options, many of our users requested fingerprint to unlock functionality. We quickly added support for Samsung's new fingerprint to unlock feature in order to help the user and enhance the Samsung flagship experience."

CM Locker's product development process has focused on offering the ultimate collection of phone unlocking features in a single application. In addition to a constantly improving user interface, CM Locker also includes"Intruder Selfie" protection – when someone tries several times to unlock the phone, it automatically takes pictures from the front-facing camera, transfers the pictures to the phone owner's mailbox, and alerts the user of a potential theft.

With smartphones playing integral part of people's lives, Cheetah Mobile's will continue to innovate on how to better protect users' actions, data, and privacy.
