Why choose avast! Free Mobile Security?
A standalone yet tightly integrated component of the avast! Mobile Security environment, avast! Anti-Theft is the slyest component on the market – because your security app should not alert potential thieves about its presence. You’ll be able to remotely control your ‘lost’ phone by SMS at any time, with no signals indicated on the phone itself. Formerly known as Theft Aware, the Anti-Theft portion of avast! Free Mobile Security has been recommended by leading industry experts that include T-Mobile, N-TV, AndroidPIT, and Android Police.
avast! Mobile Security
Performs on-demand scans of all installed apps and memory card content, as well as on-access scans of apps upon first execution. Options for scheduling scans, virus definition updates, uninstalling apps, deleting files, or reporting a false-positive to our virus lab.
