"This patented product is a game-changer by providing an extremely valuable service for both mobile users and our strategic partners."
DENVER, CO, September 08, 2015 /24-7PressRelease/ -- After battling for more than 9 years with the patent office, the founder of FrontDoorSoftware, a mobile security software company, has been awarded a patent that could have major implications for mobile marketing. The new patent involves a clever way to control the wake and pre-lock screen displays on smartphones, tablets and laptops - a space that many perceive as the next big idea for controlling the most valuable property in the media universe.
This patent protects the products of FrontDoorSoftware, including the Rescue ME Alert App, which utilize the wake screens of many kinds of devices in addition to providing customers with valuable anti-theft, recovery and personal safety features. People wake up their mobile devices upwards of 100 times per day, and until now no company has been able to successfully capture the wake screen real estate with a useful product that can solve a problem and also has major advertising revenue implications.
"The wake screen is essentially the most valuable real estate in the media world because of the frequency that people wake up their phones," said Carrie Hafeman, president of FrontDoorSoftware. "This patented product is a game-changer by providing an extremely valuable service for both mobile users and our strategic partners."
Strategic partners of FrontDoorSoftware can offer a custom version of these patented wake screen programs to their customer base and also include their own content, apps or helpful information to communicate with their customers. Smartphone users average waking up their phones more than 100 times a day, meaning 1 million users will generate up to 3 billion page views per month at the mobile device wake screen display.
"Whoever is first to offer a custom version of this product to their customers to help them protect their devices, their information, and even their lives, will control this wake screen for years to come," said Hafeman.
The products protected by this patent focus on anti-theft and recovery software for smartphones, tablets and laptops. More than 162,000 smart phones are lost or stolen every day in the US, and 1 out of 10 laptops or tablets are stolen every year according to FBI statistics. Left unprotected, statistics suggest users have only a 3% chance of recovery.
Unlike many competing software programs, FrontDoorSoftware's products are not stealth or hidden. This important difference is what allows FrontDoorSoftware users the ability to display ownership contact information on the wake screen.
"We believe there are more good people than bad people in the world, and most people who come across a lost smartphone would wish to return it to the owner if they knew how. A stealth program makes it impossible for someone to do that," said Hafeman.
If the device truly is stolen, FrontDoorSoftware's programs will allow customers to blast a stolen/lost message to the device to be displayed on the wake screen, remotely lock it down, get a Google map showing clues as to the location and even allow the user to have the device yell out for help with a standard or customized audio message.
"The standard message doesn't include any profanity, but the owner can create a customized message if they wish to be more explicit," Hafeman said.
The mobile apps also provide personal safety features by offering three emergency buttons with the ownership display on the wake screen on Android devices. These buttons help save valuable seconds in the event of a medical emergency, physical assault emergency, or just to quickly and silently text and let others know where they are.
