The Michigan Secure mobile app provided by the State of Michigan provides a free, easy way for Michiganders to protect themselves and their loved ones from cybercrime. It empowers users by informing them of threats they may encounter as they interact with an increasingly technology-driven world.
The most recent version of the app continuously detects and blocks risky links on mobile devices across apps if the user chooses to opt in, warning users about potentially harmful digital environments. It also extends anti-phishing capabilities to the Messages app and the Safari browser on iOS mobile devices, protecting users from malicious and risky links, pictures or videos in text messages and online. Additionally, the upgraded version of the app provides users with a summary of permission requests and privacy information for new downloads, describing the information that can and cannot be accessed from the user’s devices.
Michigan Secure is available for mobile devices running iOS 11 or higher, Android 6.0 or higher, and Chromebooks with Android apps support. Michiganders can download Michigan Secure from the App Store or Google Play. For more information, visit Michigan.gov/MichiganSecureApp.
