[From Future: an updated article can be found here Free Kaspersky Internet Security for Android One Year License] That day I was reading one mobile telecom company’s orders for smart phone is over 90 percent of its total orders. People are taking less interest in feature phones. This is a trend adopted by young and now being followed by everybody. Who does not wanna look young? kidding. These smart phones are mini computers. They have better processing power than Pentium computers. Soon we will have Quad-Core processors in smart phones, Dual-Core is already available since sometime. I remember the day using Windows 98 on my brother’s computer and that was the fastest computer which he had among friends and family. LOL.
Never ever think that your smart phone is secure without any security software unless you keep it off all the time, there is no exception though you use iPhone, LOL. For smart phone, you need smart security. There are not many smart securities available for these phone types. Just two or three security vendors are making smart phone security software for mobile OSs. Kaspersky is one famous security producer for these phones. They have all-rounder mobile security for Android, BalckBerry, Symbian and Windows. Do you use iPhone, google your security.
We shared Kaspersky Mobile Security 9 promo valid for six months in previous February. Now the new promo license will work for three months. Kaspersky mobile security features are:
You have exclusive control over which of your contacts and phone numbers you want to keep ‘private’. Hide and unhide phonebook entries, SMSs and call logs at the touch of a button.
You can locate a lost or stolen smartphone using the inbuilt GPS Find function. Remotely Block your phone if it is lost or stolen. Just send a predefined SMS to your phone and your device will be blocked and no-one will be able to access its contents. You can even choose to remotely Wipe your data. NEW! Set a prearranged message that will be displayed on the screen if the smartphone is blocked, allowing any law-abiding citizen that finds your smartphone to return it to you. You can locate your smartphone using GPS Find. Just send an SMS with the appropriate password to the missing device and you will receive a link to Google Maps showing the exact location of the device. The first thing a thief normally does is to remove your smartphone’s SIM card. If the SIM is replaced, SIM Watch will immediately block the device and send you an email with the new number.
Give sensitive information on your phone an extra level of security. Choose the folders on your smartphone that you want to encrypt and password-protect. Even if the folder is located on a memory card, it cannot be accessed from another phone or computer without the correct password.
Are trivial calls or messages distracting you at inopportune moments? Choose which contacts you want to accept calls and messages from. Anti-Spam can run in whitelist mode (only accepting calls and messages from specified contacts) or in blacklist mode (accepting calls and messages from all numbers except those on the list).
When installed on a child’s mobile, Kaspersky Mobile Security can block outgoing calls or SMSs to undesirable numbers, including premium rate services. GPS Find allows you to pinpoint exactly where your child is at any time of the day or night.
