avast! Mobile Security provides a comprehensive pack of security tools
Since we have small computers in our pockets, accessibility has been enhanced enormously. However, threats have also increased: classic virus, trojans, phising are still there but some other threats like device robbery or lose burst the scene.
avast! Mobile Security is a pack of security tools that fulfill all that needs. Thus, it includes, a Virus scanner able to scan both apps and SD card and that allows you to schedule automatic scans. Likewise, there's a Privacy Advisor which tracks apps permission and divides them by understandable categories. There's a built-in App Manager from where you can delete cache and data, force close, uninstall and check out info related to the app.
In order to null any phising or malicious site, there's a Web Shield which protects you against the risks you are exposed to while browsing the Web. Spam via SMS is also a concern on mobile devices. It includes a SMS and Call Filter to block specific spammers. Unless others security apps, this includes a Firewall. Although it could seem useless so far, it's meant to be necessary in a few months. This feature requires ROOT access.
And finally, one of the most important features: Anti-Theft. It allows you to lock and wipe remotely, activate siren sound, deny accesses, geo-location, among many other. Take into account that the Anti-Theft package for root devices includes more features.
If you're looking for a comprehensive security app, this is going to fit you.

Fixed problem with installation on older devices
I love this! I have tried norton, avg, lookout, netqin and Avast is the fastest and best I've ever had so far. Avast is just perfect! I also use Avast on my PC. This app is so far the best in the market for mobile security.
It takes too much time to download
I forgot my pin for a while, but I just guessed it and eventually got it. But anyway, great app. It detects everything! P.S. if you use a root app, it detects it as a virus. Its because its using a vulnerability to root it. It is used for malicious code as well.
Great program. Have it on my tablets and phone.
Very good service
