Android users can now pay for bandwidth on Orchid via in-app purchases, which allow people to buy Orchid accounts filled with XDAI using nothing more than an ordinary credit card. In-app purchases, which have been available on iOS since last year, make it possible to get started with Orchid in seconds.
The Android operating system is utilized by more than 70% of all of the smartphone users in the world, translating to roughly two billion people worldwide. In China and India--the world's two most populous countries--Android users make up more than 70 percent of smartphone owners. And in Indonesia, which has the largest mobile VPN market in the world, Android devices account for more than 90 percent of all smartphones. Android users also exist in large numbers in developing markets around the world, including Latin America and Africa.
"The launch of in-app purchases on Android makes Orchid easily accessible to billions more users around the world, particularly in emerging markets," said Co-founder and CEO Dr. Steven Waterhouse. "This release greatly expands the reach of Orchid's privacy solution and brings access to online privacy to more people than ever before."
