As you probably know, most of Android security apps are actually packages that include a host of other tools from contact filtering to remote lock or wipe. Is this what you also have in mind? Join the club!
With so many options out there, choosing might not be the easiest thing to do, so let me help you with a suggestion that you cannot regret. I am talking about Avast! Mobile Security which is ideal for any security-conscious user. Is this exactly what you are too? Then, do not hesitate to keep on reading more about this option!
The app that I am telling you about today comes with an impressive range of tools. It has antivirus protection, it includes a suite of anti-theft tools as you have the chance to remotely locate and lock your device, and you can prevent anyone from uninstalling apps by using password protection.
When it comes to the anti-theft component, let me tell you a secret: Avast! Mobile Security is based on an old app known as Theft Aware which Avast acquired a long time ago. The anti-theft feature is hidden and gives you the possibility to remote control your smartphone using SMS. Don’t say that you will never use it, but trust me when I say that it can happen to anyone to lose his or her Android handset. So, if you lose your phone, you can remotely lock it, locate it, or wipe it.
And you can even make it play a siren sound or prevent USB debugging as well, so no thief will ever love it! The app allows you to retain your privacy as you can block numbers from those you don’t want to be able to contact you. Then, if you have a rooted device, there’s also a firewall that allows you to control network traffic. You can block access to Wi-Fi or the network for specific apps which is simply ideal for saving as much battery life as possible.
And the app gives you all these and much more and doesn’t cost you a penny. You can give it a try from here and rest assured about one thing: Avast Marketing Director, Milos Korenko, has officially declared that “There might be a paid version in the future but that won’t have an impact on the free version. It will continue to be available and loaded with features.”
