RealDefense certifies its software apps through AppEsteem (appesteem.com) for industry and best practices compliance. AppEsteem dictates how an application should perform on users device, how it should collect data, as well as the supply chain associated with the software product being marketed. This includes any upsells made after the initial purchase, software communication via email and pop ups and call centers used to provide technical support. RealDefense pays AppEsteem a fee so that AppEsteem can review our apps continuously and certify new versions of our apps. You can find our live certification status here.
