MacKeeper’s parent company, Kromtech Alliance Corp., named to Online Trust Alliance Honor Roll 2016 for a second consecutive year
The Online Trust Honor Roll recognizes excellence and commitment to best practices in privacy, security and consumer protection for websites and mobile applications.
“Kromtech is to be commended for their efforts to move beyond compliance enhancing data security and implementing responsible privacy practices. As a second year recipient of the Online Trust Honor Roll, their efforts to bolstering online trust is a positive step for consumers and the industry alike”, said Craig Spiezle, Executive Director and President Online Trust Alliance.
"Being a 2nd year recipient, Kromtech is proud of our contributions to data protection and privacy by pursuing the best security practices provided by OTA. This includes establishing our in-house MacKeeper Security Research Center with researcher Chris Vickery. We have helped many companies and users worldwide to secure their data online and will continue to help many more in the future. We are pleased to be named to the 2016 Online Trust Honor Roll and to continue our way towards transparent and safe online business environment”, said Alexander Kernishniuk, CEO of Kromtech Alliance Corp.

Since Kromtech joined the OTA as a Full Member, the company has focused on improvements of their own online business model. One of the improvements they have made was the “Anti Scare Ad” initiative that is designed to decrease the use of online “Scare Ads,” which are intended to scare or dishonestly coerce users into downloading software.
Furthermore at the end of 2015 MacKeeper gave customers the option to choose whether or not to see MacKeeper ads online. At the same time, by providing a right of choice to the internet users, MacKeeper educates users about online advertising, its value, nature, and purpose, then gives users the freedom to decide if blocking ads is what they want to do.
Kromtech is proud to prove its commitment to the consumer protection and is ready to keep raising awareness of core security and privacy issues.
