Secure Boston

Secure Boston is a project from Boston, Massachusetts.

Local IT innovation of the Year

Secure Boston is a free, privacy-first mobile security app for City of Boston residents that alerts and protects them when suspicious activity is detected. The app helps protect their mobile device by detecting unsafe links received via text, email, a messaging app or social media. The app also protects mobile devices by scanning QR codes and links for phishing attempts, alerting residents of untrusted networks when using public Wi-Fi networks, and protecting their personal information and credentials from attackers. Secure Boston will analyze potential mobile device threats while operating under a strict privacy policy and technical controls that ensure your privacy is respected.
