DataCompress FAQs

What is DataCompress?

DataCompress is a data savings app for your mobile device that helps you get the most out of your device's data plan.

Who created DataCompress?

DataCompress was created by Private Communications Corporation, a leading Internet data privacy company and creator of personal encryption software called Private WiFi®.

Why was it created?

Nobody likes getting socked with a data overage—or using their phone less because they fear one. The purpose of DataCompress is to help people save money and use their phones the way they want.

How does DataCompress work?

Data Compress saves you data by compressing images and text. Here's how:

Your phone connects to the Internet through a DataCompress server. If you request to see a picture, the DataCompress server shrinks it first—and then sends it to your phone. It happens fast—in fractions of a second. Instead of downloading a picture that's unnecessarily big, you get only what you need—a picture that's the perfect size for your phone.

Why do I need it?

If you're currently going over your data plan limit, it's a no-brainer. Even if you're not, there's a good chance you could tomorrow.

Most of the apps on your smartphone are not smart about how they use data. They use way more than they need—often in the background and without telling you. And many of them aren't optimized to use as little data as possible. They see no difference between a fat unlimited WiFi connection and a smaller mobile data pipe. They guzzle data, even when they should be sipping.

Why should I pay for data compression?

Other companies offer a data compression product to you for free because they sell information about you and your online behavior to advertisers.

Data Compress is the only data-savings product created by a privacy company. Private Communications Corporation is a leading Internet data privacy company and creator of personal encryption software called Private WiFi®.

Data Compress will never store, analyze, monetize or share information about you or your browsing habits with anyone.
