LegalShield Enhances Mobile App with New Features

November 4, 2019

ADA, Okla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 4, 2019--

LegalShield, one of North America’s leading providers of affordable legal plans for individuals, families and small businesses, announced two new features to their highly rated mobile app: biometric login and the ability to upload legal documents directly via the app.

“Top of the line security for a mobile app that holds sensitive information is essential,” said Scott Grissom, Senior Vice President Chief Product Officer at LegalShield. “Our most recent updates demonstrate continual enhancement to an app that delivers affordable access to legal services – easy to use, accessible to the masses and customer-centric at every tap.”

The biometric login feature ensures consumers’ information is safe with LegalShield, adding an even more personal and secure level of protection. Users will still be able to manually login to their account if desired.

With the new document upload feature, the LegalShield app has added a level of convenience for users that is unrivalled. Rather than mailing, faxing, or emailing legal documents to an attorney for review, users can now send them straight to their LegalShield provider law firm via the app in just a few simple steps.

LegalShield’s app has a rating of 4.8 stars out of 5 on the iOS App store and 4.7 stars out of 5 on the Google Playstore. The LegalShield mobile apps are available in English and Spanish and to U.S. and Canadian citizens.
