If you have an Android device, it means you need added security measures to protect your device against theft, loss and malware.
There is an app for that – Norton Mobile Security Lite.
This app allows you to set up your smartphone to remote lock if it is lost or stolen with a simple text message and scan for downloaded apps and app updates to protect against threats. It also provides you with the option of scanning SD card data for threats when inserted into your phone.
The app is very simple to use; you just have to feed in a password and nominate three ‘buddies’ who will be authorised to unlock your phone in the event that you forget your password and get locked out.
In keeping up to date with the various protections available in the market, you can set the app up to run updates every week.
To activate Web protection for anti-theft, anti-loss as well as call and SMS blocking capabilities, you have to purchase the full version.
This app was reviewed on a HTC Velocity 4G.
Pros: Protects your Android from thefts, malware and loss.
Cons: Full version costs nearly $40 per year.
Verdict: Essential for security, especially those who BYOD to work.
