Privacy Mobile Solution Features Free One-Touch Text Spam Complaint Filing and a
New Visually Appealing Interface
CONWAY, Ark.,  Feb. 13, 2013  /PRNewswire/ -- Today  PrivacyStar, makers of
smartphone applications that enable users to take control of their mobile
phones, is announcing the availability of a free SMS spam complaint filing
feature for Android smartphones. With an all-new polished and functional
interface, the application now offers for the first time the ability for users
to easily file text message spam complaints directly to the Federal Trade
Commission from their mobile phones.

To begin using PrivacyStar now, download the app from  Google Play. To learn
more about PrivacyStar visit  www.PrivacyStar.com.

"Analysts estimate that the amount of spam text messages in the U.S. rose by 45
percent from 2011 to a total of 4.5 billion text messages in 2012," said  Jeff
Stalnaker, CEO of PrivacyStar. "Spam text messages aren't going away any time
soon and neither are calls from debt collectors and telemarketers. PrivacyStar
is thrilled to offer an application with simple, one-touch call and text message
complaint filing so mobile users can easily report those who are breaking the
rules to the FTC."

Previous versions allowed users to report calls that are potential violations of
the Do Not Call Registry and Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. To date,
PrivacyStar users have filed more than 470,000 complaints to the FTC. Now users
can additionally file text message spam complaints.

PrivacyStar currently offers a subscription-based application with unlimited
call and text blocking capabilities, along with call and text number lookup
features. Mobile users can enjoy the benefits of FTC complaint filing for SMS
spam, Do Not Call Registry and Fair Debt Collection Practices Act violations
without purchasing PrivacyStar's full suite of features.

Pricing and Availability
PrivacyStar offers a free full feature seven-day trial. After the trial period,
users can enjoy filing complaints free of charge and may continue using all
features for a small monthly fee.  PrivacyStar is available for immediate
download at
