MobileXpression is a market research company that rewards you for simply installing their app on your mobile device.
I have previously written extensively about apps you can use to make money and other side hustle ideas. While I do not consider the Mobilexpression app to be a top contender on my list of money-making apps, it does pay you for surfing the internet.
If you are comfortable with the potential privacy concerns that come with apps that track your browsing behaviour online, Mobilexpression is worth checking out.

What is MobileXpression?
Mobilexpression is a market research panel and community that studies the trends and behaviours of people using the internet through their smartphones.
The panel is operated by Comscore, Inc., a global leader in digital marketing research. Comscore is located in Reston, Virginia, United States, and the company is listed on NASDAQ as SCOR.
How to Join MobileXpression
To become a member, you must be at least 18 years of age and have a mobile device that is compatible with the Mobilexpression app.
You should also be able to access the internet using your phone.
Here’s how to download the app in Canada and the United States:

How Does Mobilexpression Work?
As already mentioned, Mobilexpression tracks your use of the internet for research purposes.
After you have signed up and installed the app on your phone (or tablet), it works in the background collecting information about your mobile phone usage.
Some of the information that is tracked include the websites you visit, your shopping habits, app usage and more.
The app routes your internet traffic through a virtual private network (VPN) for data collection. When installed appropriately, the app is pretty much set-and-forget.
The company may send you occasional surveys to answer.
What are the benefits of installing the Mobilexpression app?
If you keep the app installed for 1 week (7 days), you qualify for a $5 Amazon gift card. If you remain an active member after the first week, you continue to earn credits for each week the app is installed.
You can redeem these credits for gift cards including Amazon, The Home Depot, Dunkin Donuts and others.
Mobilexpression also holds sweepstakes where you can win up to $100,000.
Lastly, they donate a tree to Trees For The Future when you keep the app installed for 90 days. As of this writing, they have planted more than 18 million trees.
Is Mobilexpression Safe?
The research panel is owned by Comscore, Inc., a legitimate market research company. Comscore is routinely quoted by media giants such as the New York Times, CNN and the Wall Street Journal. Their research is also used by Fortune 500 companies.
That being said, I’m personally not willing to give up my internet browsing data for a $5 Amazon gift card reward….even if all I have to do is install an app for 7 days.
