MobileXpression Review

MobileXpression is an app for Android and iOS that rewards you for sharing your data. As opposed to standard online survey sites, you don’t need to spend time answering questions. Instead, this is a passive income source requiring very little effort. At the same time, you’ll need to be comfortable sharing a large amount of data about your online behaviour. We’ve taken a critical look at MobileXpression to see if the panel is worth signing up for.

Is MobileXpression a legit survey site?

Based on my search results, MobileXpression is a legitimate app that you can use to earn real rewards. The app’s parent company, Comscore, has received an A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau. However, there are mixed reviews about the app. Some users have reported negative experiences with the app, including having their accounts locked when trying to redeem rewards. On the other hand, there are also positive reviews from users who have had no issues with the app and have been able to redeem rewards without any problems. It’s important to carefully read and understand the terms and conditions before using any app or service.

What’s the concept?

MobileXpression is an online meter used for media measurement that collects data on mobile device usage to provide insights into how users engage with various types of media. This is similar to other online meters such as Nielsen’s Computer & Media Panel and Ipsos’ inCompass MediaCell panel. The app collects data such as apps used, websites visited, and search terms used by its users through tracking technologies like cookies and pixels.

The collected data is aggregated and analyzed to provide insights into how users engage with media on their mobile devices. The anonymized data is then shared with comScore’s clients such as media companies, advertisers, and publishers to better understand their audience and optimize their digital strategies. MobileXpression’s owner comScore also provides benchmarking data to help clients compare their performance to industry standards.

To protect user privacy, MobileXpression uses techniques such as de-identification, aggregation, and encryption to ensure that user data remains anonymous and secure. Users are also given the option to opt out of data collection at any time.

Data Privacy: Potential drawbacks

MobileXpression is a so-called online meter, which is used to track how users consume media. It’s important that you’re comfortable sharing your browsing history and app activity since this is the whole point of the app. If you feel it’s intrusive to share so many details, the app is probably not the right one for you:

  1. Collection of personal information: Online meters like MobileXpression collect a lot of personal information, such as browsing history, app usage, and search terms. Some people might feel uncomfortable with the idea of their data being collected and shared with unknown 3rd party companies, even if only shared in aggregate form.
  2. Lack of transparency: The data collection practices of online meters are not always transparent. Users might have a hard time understanding what data is being collected, how it’s being used, or who it’s being shared with.
  3. Potential for misuse: While MobileXpression is a legit app with a strong focus on data protection, there’s always a risk that the data collected by online meters could be misused or hacked. This could lead to sensitive information being exposed, or personal information being used for malicious purposes.
  4. Difficulty in deleting the data: While users have the option to opt out of data collection, it might not always be easy to delete all the data previously tracked. Some users may find it difficult to navigate the opt-out and data deletion process, or may not even be aware that such an option exists.

The extensive amount of information they track will be shared with a wide range of customers and other third party companies.

How to get started

MobileXpression basically pays you for data about your online browsing and app behaviour, device type, and carrier. In turn, MobileXpression’s parent company comScore receives payment from companies for the aggregated data sets that will help them with their mobile marketing strategies.

You can download and register on MobileXpression: visit the link and Click Here, select your mobile internet provider from the drop-down, select your smartphone manufacturer from the drop-down, select the device, enter your email ID then click on the Register button.

Anyone over the age of 18 can join MobileXpression. All users must be able to enter into a binding agreement and have an up-to-date mobile device that can operate the MobileXpression app properly.

What about the user experience?

To earn money, you must give the app all the necessary permissions. You also need to provide basic demographic information such as age, gender, educational level, and household income.  You must also keep MobileXpression installed and active in the background, enabling continuous data-sharing.

How much can you make on MobileXpression?

You earn 15 credits as a signup bonus after installing and running the app for a week. Each preceding week of activity will pay you 2 credits. However, if you close the app or lose your internet connection, you might find that your week is interrupted and it takes a few more days to earn. Because credits have different values depending on what you want to redeem them for, your options may be 10 Credit Rewards to earn a $5 gift card or 15 Credit Rewards to earn a $10 gift card. But it is advisable to hold onto your credits to redeem 15 credit rewards since the value is better. For 15 credit rewards, each credit is worth $0.66. MobileXpression pays $1.32 per week for running on your phone. This means you earn $5.28 per month and $63.36 per year being a member. If you include your $10 signup bonus, your potential earnings in your first year are about $73.

MobileXpression does not allow you to cash out via PayPal or check but you have several gift card options to choose from. Gift card availability and choices vary based on your country, but generally, you can redeem gift cards from Amazon, Walmart, Best Buy, and Starbucks. Your gift cards will be sent through email and the gift card codes will arrive in just a few days.

Swagbucks Review Summary
Swagbucks is one of the grand old ladies of the online survey world. Here it's all about quantity; the more surveys you take, the more rewards you accumulate. Expect to wade through a ton of screenout questions which you'll never get paid for though. And when you do get rewarded, the incentive is usually very low.
