A free and easy to use app to keep your Android device free from infection
Viruses are a serious problem for all computing platforms and this includes Android. AVG Anti-Virus Free is a free protection tool designed with Android devices in mind, and despite the name the app is capable of much more that simply detecting and removing viruses – there are also a number of tools on hand to help to improve the performance and stability of your mobile.
Virus detection is the key reason for installing the app, however, and Anti-Virus Free can scan apps and files in real-time to ensure on-going protection against viruses and malware. If you should lose your phone, the app provides you with the opportunity to remotely wipe or lock it to prevent your personal data from falling into the wrong hands.
A beta version of a backup utility is included, and this can be used to safeguard your valuable files and data by copying them to an SD card. This gives you the opportunity to protect personal information such as text messages, contacts, web logs and more.
There are a number of other handy features including a task killer that can be used to quickly and easily improve device performance by terminating tasks and app that have frozen or are causing slow-down. Your mobile now contains just as much, maybe even more, personal information than your PC, and this free utility enables you to ensure that it stays protected in a number of ways.
