Mobile Security Personal Edition will keep your phone safe

by Irfan Choudhury

Mobile devices and cell phones are no longer just phones. With the emergence of smartphone technology, these devices have become more precious. And if you consider that you store important data on your phone, it becomes an even more valuable object. For me, my HTC smartphone is an integral part of my life that stores data about personal things and work information. Nobody wants their device to be hacked, affected by malicious apps or viruses, so Mobile Security Personal Edition is an app that ensures the safety of your smartphone and keeps it safe from bad apps and viruses.

Trend Micro has developed some good apps in the past. Mobile Security Personal Edition is a new addition, and not a bad one. It can protect your phone from data loss and all types of malicious apps and web threats. I read in a journal that cyber-criminals around the world create five new threats every second. This means our smartphones are not at all safe. Apps like Mobile Security Personal Edition can therefore give many users some real peace of mind.

Mobile Security Personal Edition is a smoothly designed app and has nice features. It can scan most files and apps on your smartphone. However, it cannot reach the root files and a data wipe will kill the app instantly. But to its credit, it can scan all the websites a user visits. If it finds any site risky, it automatically blocks it. Additionally, it has a feature that allows the user to block unwanted calls. And, like other security apps, it has a parental control feature. It has also a ‘locate your device’ feature, so your smartphone can be seen on a Google map if it goes missing.

Trend Micro offers a 30-day full-featured trial for the personal edition. After that one has to pay $29.99/year which I think is quite expensive.
