Outbyte Product Line Certified by AppEsteem

At Outbyte, one of our priorities is making sure that our software adheres to the industry’s modern-day standards, regulations, and practices. We are all for a transparent and safe cyberspace for everyday computer and internet users.

Those are the reasons why we decided to apply for certification by AppEsteem – a trusted cybersecurity organization – and successfully attained it. Outbyte apps that are now AppEsteem certified include Outbyte PC Repair, Outbyte Driver Updater, Outbyte Antivirus, and Outbyte MacRepair.

What is AppEsteem?

AppEsteem is one of the world’s most prominent cybersecurity organizations that contributes to the safety of more than 2 billion users. The company was founded by a team of experienced Microsoft cybersecurity specialists. Its mission is to create a safe space for computer and internet users where they are protected against cyber threats and deceptive or unethical practices.

What are AppEsteem certification requirements?

AppEsteem requirements come from the IT industry companies, government bodies, cybersecurity organizations, and end consumers. These requirements were put in place to prevent fraud attempts, exploitation of users, misinformation, and a number of other unethical practices by companies that may not have the user’s best interest in mind. The full list of requirements includes almost 130 items. All of these requirements have to be met in order for an app to successfully complete the certification process.

Some of the requirements that are most important to customers include a clear and explicit description of the app’s purpose, its features and interface, and a user agreement. The app must not mislead customers into believing that their system has a problem that does not exist, exaggerate existing issues, or display any false claims. Other requirements include not spamming, not secretly installing any other software or components on customers’ devices without their consent, not collecting any sensitive user information, not spreading any malware, viruses or the like. The apps should be easy to uninstall, be clear about the subscription and payment models, and not produce any negative effects on computer performance, etc.

What does Outbyte software getting certified mean to our customers?

Being able to meet all of AppEsteem’s strict requirements means that our product line apps can be considered clean, safe, and transparent; and that our software is compliant with the ethical and legal norms of distribution.
