Aug 25, 2011

The good thing about Android? It can run pretty much any piece of software that gets thrown at it. The bad thing about Android? It can run pretty much any piece of software that gets thrown at it. This includes the risk of viruses and other kinds of malicious software developed by malicious people. So, Norton Mobile Security is now available to help protect against this. This app allows for apps and updates to be scanned for malicious software. Before iOS users start laughing at the idea that Android users might possibly need this, they should take heed that this is more than just an anti-virus program. It can also provide anti-theft protection, with the ability to remotely lock phones via SMS. These features are available in the Lite version currently available on the Android Market. The full version, available with a $30 yearly subscription, offers the ability to remotely find the phone, lock the phone on SIM card removal, and remotely wipe all data on the phone. Norton Mobile Security Lite is available on the Android Market now.
