Android security app for tablets

AVG Technologies released ANTIVIRUSFree for Android (AVG Mobilation for Android), can scan apps, settings, data and media files in real time for viruses and other malware. And if the tablet gets lost or stolen, it can be remotely traced and wiped to protect privacy.

The backup feature also protects contacts, call logs, bookmarks, messages and installed applications to an SD card.

The “app locker’ can password protect any app on the phone to prevent children from using certain applications or data.

“Mobile devices are vital to most people’s lives and have practically developed into full computers in your pocket.” said J.R. Smith, CEO, AVG Technologies. “IDC predicted that nearly 50 millions tablets will be sold this year, meaning more users will carry more of their digital life world with them, everywhere. As a result, securing these devices and protecting data becomes ever more crucial.”

“A mobile device is more personal than your computer at home, as it goes next to your wallet and your house keys and contains relevant data, your contacts, your family photos and memories,” said Omri Sigelman, VP Marketing and Products, AVG Mobile Solutions. AVG Mobilation for Android tablet protects you from the threats that target precious data in mobile devices.
