Product Description

Product Description

"

Simple. Safe. Resource saving.

Comprehensive protection for your Android phone or tablet.

Losing your smartphone or tablet PC is annoying as well as dangerous; if the device falls into the wrong hands, strangers have access to sensitive and personal data like photos or the address book. Smartphones and the like are most frequently lost in public places – last year, approximately 1,500 mobile devices were lost at Germany's largest airport in Frankfurt (source: Fraport). With MobileSecurity 2, G Data is launching a new and comprehensive security solution that offers users of Android devices perfect protection against mobile online threats and the consequences of a loss: Theft protection makes it possible to locate and lock the smartphone; users can also delete their data remotely and disable use of different SIM cards. In addition, apps can be password protected so that they can only be used once the password has been entered.

G Data MobileSecurity 2 provides reliable protection against mobile malware as well as real-time protection when surfing the net on a smartphone or tablet PC. In addition, users can block annoying callers and SMS senders, and contacts and the corresponding calls and messages can be password protected. Those who use their device for personal use as well as for work can thus protect their business contacts separately. In addition, smartphone and tablet users can protect themselves from the fatal consequences of a loss or theft. Devices can be retrieved and stored data can be deleted from afar to protect it from third party access. Mobile devices are thus optimally protected.

""In general, Android is not an unsafe operating system but, for the perpetrators, the effort required to develop malware that is spread through manipulated apps pays off because Android is widespread.""
Eddy Willems, G Data Security Evangelist.

4.0 out of 5 stars Quick 7 April 2013
By ziggy_fan TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
The QR code that comes with the pack allows you to go to the web site to download the app straight to your Android device (I have a HTC Desire S). The download and install took a couple of minutes, you then have to register to get the full version with the registration key provided with the software packaging. Full security scan of the mobile took a minute, and the app sits in the background working away to block security breaches. The only thing which leaves me unsure is the lost/stolen device tracking feature, there are no instructions as such and I am not sure I have quite figured out how that works.

1.0 out of 5 stars Found Code Did Not Work 15 April 2013
By C. M. Cotton TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This product comes in a slim envelope and all you are buying is a code and a bar code to scan, on a piece of card. You scan the bar code on the card and supposedly enter the code into the phone that is also found on the card and the programme should download. I followed the minimalist instruction, did as was instructed and was constantly informed by an error message that the code was not recognised. I could not find any contact details with the card, otherwise I would have asked the company for help. What did install from the scan, is a basic version of the software that protects the phone from viruses. This seems to work quite well and does the job. It would be nice to have the full product, I will keep trying and if I can get it working I will update this review.

1.0 out of 5 stars nice idea, if it worked 20 Jan. 2014
By Paul Stewart VINE VOICE
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I am very careful regarding computer viruses so was pleased to be sent this for my mobile phone. I use G Data products on my main PC and laptops and it is very good indeed.

Downloading the software was easy after scanning the Q code but my serial number code was rejected.

The app still ran and found no problems but I would have liked the full product.

No contact information was provided, so unable to ask for assistance. Will keep trying and if I succeed will update this review.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not very impressive software 18 Dec. 2013
By Thomas Pots TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
The product comprises a little envelope inside which is a card with the QR code to scan, or the website address to visit to download the software onto your phone. I visited the website, and found a notice saying that "G Data MobileSecurity is now called G Data AntiVirus Free!" Luckily, I had received this product free for review anyway, so I lost no money in the deal. I downloaded the free software and installed it. It occupied 39.11MB on the phone.

I could find nowhere to enter the registration code, which kind of makes this entire package pointless. Just to be clear here, I am reviewing this in December 2013, so I assume the product has switched to being free since copies were sent out to reviewers.

I ran the virus scan on the phone (a Samsung Galaxy Ace). It offers an application scan or a full system scan. I tried both, and both reported a problem. My phone was infected with malware. Yes, but what malware? Erm... it had detected my "Bitdefender Anti-Theft" software, which I installed to disable my phone in the event of it being stolen. The software really should have recognised Bitdefender as safe, and not reported it as malware.

2.0 out of 5 stars Unnecessarily complicated and unstable 12 Nov. 2013
By Mr. Damian J. McGrath VINE VOICE
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Firstly, this program is a bargain on Amazon as it is routinely more expensive on the Google Play store. Secondly, the program is very unstable. It crashes on my Samsung S2 occasionally and seems to slow my general phone operation down. I simply don't believe it's necessary. There are plenty of free anti virus and security programs out there, such as AVG, and even G Data do a free version. I have used both the free and paid for versions and haven't seen any difference in terms of blocking dangerous issues, and the paid for version is far more intrusive and annoying.

I would not recommend this.

1.0 out of 5 stars Simply put - I can't get this to work. 11 Nov. 2013
By Amazoniac TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
The code didn't load up - even after many hours of watching my phone and tablet both struggle to download and install this product.
I also tried going to download direct from the website, but that was no better.
I suppose there are so many permutations of Android software about that you expect some stuff to not work with some devices - this didn't want to work with either of mine.

1.0 out of 5 stars Only 12 months' protection, and poor at that! 22 May 2013
By  VINE VOICE
This is a subscription service. Get one of the many free products instead, and save yourself a load of money.

This one isn't even very good. Look at the PC Advisor expert review to see how it massively failed to block malware.

Not recommended

4.0 out of 5 stars As described 11 April 2013
By Dr. Paul Ell HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I have to admit that I'm not sure how big a problem viruses and malware are with Android. I suspect it's greater than for iPhones as the operating system is much more open and software available from a variety of different providers. At low cost this software provides protection against viruses and also allows you to restrict the use of our phone or its content by others. You can lock parts of your address book for example, restrict access to internet sites and wipe the phone remotely.

The software, on my new Sony Xperia Z, was very quick and easy to install. The manufacturer simply supplies a link to a website to download the software, or a bar code so you don't have to type the site address in, and a software key. Over a fast BT Infinity connection it took seconds to load and install. The virus scans are also very quick and the system, as you would expect, updates automatically.

So overall recommended and four stars.
