Review: Quick Heal Mobile Security gives your device powerful protection

Protect your phone from viruses, Trojans, harassing callers, and even theft with this powerful protection suite.

Quick Heal Mobile Security offers quick and reliable protection from viruses and harassing calls and texts, as well as theft. Though it's a paid app that's competing with powerful security freebies, it stands up well to them, thanks to its stylish interface and user friendliness. This app is worth using if you need complete protection for your mobile device and are willing to pay for it.

After you install Quick Heal Mobile Security, you have the option to buy the full version of the app or start a free trial. The trial version offers all of the features of the premium edition so you can test the app's call and text blocking as well as its anti-theft mode right away. The latter takes a while to set up, but can help you remotely wipe and find your phone if it's lost or stolen. All of the app's settings are available from a stylish menu that's a pleasure to use. The meat of the app, its virus scanning, isn't slow, but there are faster apps available. It took about five minutes to scan our phone during testing, but it did find a legitimate threat. Quick Heal eliminated it automatically, without asking for confirmation.

A well-built app, Quick Heal Mobile Security will protect your phone from just about anything that could befall it, except rain. However, you might not need all its features, much less be inclined to pay for them. Luckily, this app lets you try before you buy. It's worth at least the trial.
