Mobile security protection for Android devices

BitDefender UK : 26 February, 2014  (New Product)
Android security from BitDefender provides anti-theft and privacy protection as well as malware detection
Mobile security protection for Android devices

Bitdefender has announced the launch of the new Bitdefender Mobile Security for Android, fortified with smart anti-theft capabilities, enhanced privacy protection and a sleek new interface.

The announcement comes after a recent Bitdefender study of 836,021 free Android apps revealed that 35% of these can access user locations, while almost 3% can leak e-mail addresses, 5% can locate and open photos on users’ phones and 10% can read contact lists.

Awarded for best malware detection and usability by independent security testers, the new Bitdefender Mobile Security for Android uses cloud-based technology to warn device owners of malicious websites, phishing and fraud while helping users find, wipe or lock missing devices easier and faster. Privacy Advisor points out intrusive apps that collect sensitive data such as browsing history, bookmarks, contacts lists, messages and calendar entries or that view saved photos.

“Modern mobile phones are less of a phone and more of a mobile computer and the unchecked use of apps can pose a serious risk to the owner’s privacy,” states Catalin Cosoi, Chief Security Strategist at Bitdefender. “Once data is accessed, the phone’s owner has no control over who sees it and how it is used.”

Bitdefender Mobile Security for Android also indicates which applications use billable device functions, including making phone calls or sending text messages, helping users make informed decisions about privacy and data security.
