F-Secure protects Android users

F-Secure released Anti-theft for Mobile and Mobile Security, which includes the Browsing Protection feature, for smartphones on the Android platform.

Today’s smartphones often contain a wealth of confidential information, including banking details, business projects and personal e-mails and photos. F-Secure’s Anti-Theft for Mobile protects confidential data and safeguards privacy in the unfortunate event that the smartphone is lost or stolen. The product was already introduced for the Symbian and Windows platforms in early January 2010.

F-Secure Anti-Theft for Mobile includes remote lock, theft control and remote wipe functionality. The remote lock can be used to lock the device easily with a single SMS message. The theft control feature activates when the SIM card is changed by locking the phone and sending the new SIM information to the owner. As an ultimate safety measure to prevent misuse, it is possible to erase all the data on the phone with remote wipe by sending an SMS message.

F-Secure Mobile Security suite, identifies which websites are safe to enter and which should be avoided. Harmful sites designed to spread malware or to steal your online identity, such as banking details, are automatically blocked to ensure a totally safe web experience.
