Bitdefender Mobile Security and Antivirus
Cost: Free | Developer: Bitdefender | Platform: Android | Version: 1.1.641 | 1,011KB |
Having already gone hands on with the pre-release of Bitdefender’s mobile security offering last year, we had the chance to finally test drive the final product.
The open source nature of Google’s Android platform has meant that malware has spread to it, and security apps such as the one from Bitdefender help secure your smartphone.
Some of the features of the app include Application Audit, which looks over the permissions of installed applications.
Anti-Theft enables users to find a lost or stolen device by harnessing global positioning technology, and Web Security keeps an eye on and informs the user about threats such as phishing or malware on web pages.
With tweaked performance and better features, Bitdefender Mobile Security and Antivirus does well in securing your smartphone handset.
Pros: It’s free and it does its intended function well.
Cons: The user interface is a bit of hit and miss.
Verdict: Bitdefender Mobile Security and Antivirus
