Want to protect your Android smartphone or tablet from increasingly potent and malicious threats? ESET Mobile Security for Android is a mobile-optimized proactive antivirus scanning engine with anti-spam and ant-itheft features which has been designed to provide real-time protection against known and emerging threats without affecting smartphone performance.

Features of the ESET Mobile Security for Android includes:

  • Proactive protection: Instantly scans all downloaded applications, files, folders and SD memory cards for trojans, viruses, worms, spyware, adware and other threats with ESET’s proactive heuristics technology.
  • Anti-theft security system: Simple SMS commands that help you remotely locate, lock or wipe your Android device in the event it is stolen or simply misplaced. GSM users can prevent unauthorized use of their mobile devices by registering trusted SIM cards. A SMS alert is sent to your alternate phone silently when any other SIM card is inserted into your GSM Android mobile device.
  • Security audit with built-in task manager: Monitor all vital phone functions including battery life, free disk space, running processes, Bluetooth and device visibility. And then take action on the spot to terminate any processes and remedy settings that raise your risk profile.
  • Password Protection: Secure your device with one user-defined master password. All module settings as well as un-installation (Android 2.2 or 2.3) can also be protected by the same password.
  • SMS/MMS/Voice antispam: Define trustworthy contacts with customizable black/white lists or simply block messages and phone calls from unknown numbers.
