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.

Top Customer Reviews
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.
What you receive is a cardboard pack which you have to `crack' open. Inside you will find your installation instructions and registration key. You can either install the product using the QR code included or by going to the website (using your phone or tablet) printed on the card.
Downloading took a few seconds and I was ready to go. The only problem was, I couldn't find any instructions on how to use the different parts of the package. I looked on their website, but couldn't find anything.
The software itself is very good and has caused no problems on my phone. There are a lot of different items you can use, ranging from: blocking callers/texts from numbers (great for those PPI and you've had an accident texts we keep on getting); protecting your apps; web protection when surfing the net; viruses; and also you can lock your phone if it is lost, or even wipe it remotely and making it impossible for anyone to use it.
Now I know there are free anti-virus apps out there, but I've never seen any that will do everything this does. And really, it works out at less than £1 a month for all the protection. You really can't complain and it does offer a lot of protection.
****UPDATE - I updated to the latest version of the software and everything was fine. But then since I updated about a month ago I noticed I wasn't getting any texts. I checked the settings and for some reason it was blocking all of my texts coming in. I never asked it to block them, and even when I unblocked them there was no way I was able to read the texts. I have immediately uninstalled the software. And even though I have uninstalled it I am not able to retrieve any of the texts. Will not be putting this back on my phone. I have downgraded the stars to one. 19/12/2013
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.
