Trend Micro is taking the protection of mobile devices to new heights with the launch of the latest version of our Mobile Security for Android® app. The new and improved app is the first to detect and block malware on Google Play BEFORE it can be installed and threaten your device and data. Competing security apps can only detect malware AFTER installation, which may be too late to prevent damage to your device.
In addition to the unique protection, the Mobile Security for Android app now has battery optimizer features. Most Android phones have limited battery life, which often leaves many owners frustrated. Using the new tools in Mobile Security for Android, you can maximize your battery’s life and save it for those very important phone calls or text messages.
The battery optimizing features include:
The enhancements to the Mobile Security for Android app don’t end with battery optimization. The new version also includes memory and processor optimizations. This frees up memory and CPU on your mobile device to maximize performance or to regain operating speed when the device becomes sluggish from running too many apps. This is a common problem with Android devices because they allow apps to freely run in the background.
The memory optimizing features include:
History Cleaner Protects Your Privacy
To protect your privacy, Mobile Security for Android has a new History Cleaner option that deletes all your history files such as those on your browsers along with cookies and clipboard material. This is an especially useful feature for shared tablets.
Mobile Security for iOS – What’s New
If you’re an iPhone fanatic, you will be happy to hear that we’ve also made some upgrades to the Mobile Security for iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad app. The enhancements include the addition of a Data Usage Monitor and improvements to the SafeSurfing Browser. The Data Usage Monitor helps you manage your data usage and costs, notifying you when you’re at risk of exceeding any limits to your cellular data plans or high charges for international roaming usage.
