Microsoft Security Centre is one of the most powerful applications on Android and iOS, but it does not make much money.
It is a free app that has seen more than 20 million installs on Google Play.
Its developer is known for its “social engineering” techniques.
The security firm said it is “not making any money from this” and it was “not aware of any major financial interest that has been generated from the platform”.
“We have always maintained the Security Center was not for profit,” said Dan Esterhaus, the firm’s senior product manager.
“But it’s not, and we have always kept it for a limited number of users.””
There is absolutely no way that we can make a substantial amount of revenue from this.” “

“It is unclear if the company is currently making any profit from the app, or if it will eventually.
“Most people use it to check out the security updates, and to get new security patches, as opposed to making money from it. “
The number of people using this app is miniscule,” said Mr Esterbus.
“We don’t have any plans to monetize this service. “
“A lot of people who use it don’t know the difference.” “
The app is part of Microsoft’s new Windows 10 security updates. “

In September, the company announced a new version of the security app would be launched on Android in December, with the first version coming in March.
“I’ve seen a lot more people using the security center app than I’ve seen them actually paying,” said Tom Vinciguerra, chief executive of security firm Malwarebytes.
“They just want it, they don’t really care about any of the other things that they can do with it.
Microsoft Security Centre is an advertising tool for Windows, but I suspect that it could have a future as a business tool.”
Mr Vincich said it was unlikely that Microsoft would ever be able for profit from it, but added that he had been told the app was “a good way to get free security updates for Windows 10”.
Microsoft has not said what kind of revenue the app could make.
