I let go of my obsolete, but very ergonomically designed mobile phone yesterday. And while waiting to see a representative for my handset upgrade, an advertisement for this Android App came on their screen display:
Considering that I had just read that hackers are starting to target mobile phones and tablets because of the number of people using them, I thought that the ad was very timely.
It addresses mobile security on several levels. It is an anti-virus that can protect your device against malware, spyware and even phishing. It secures your data by performing automated regular backups (and unlike my home storage & backup system, it was so easy to install)! And it protects your device physically, activate the location settings and you will be able to find your device by logging in to their website and clicking the locate button. Plus when you've lost your device somewhere and just want to know where it is, you can remotely make it scream (play a siren for 60 seconds) so you can find it (this will definitely come in handy for me). Identity theft and information security on your mind? It has a remote lock and data wipe for those sensitive information that thieves should not be able to obtain from your phone.
And you get all this for $29.99 per year! I'm on the trial version, I heard that the big names in anti-virus have mobile versions as well. If you know of a better mobile security solution, please feel free to leave me a comment below - I would really appreciate it.
