Review: Keep your mobile device safe and protected in real-time with Kaspersky Mobile Security

Protect your Android smarphone or tablet from unwanted malware, malicious apps, spammers, and thieves using Kaspersky Mobile Security.

Kaspersky Mobile Security helps you keep your mobile gadget safe from online threats, malicious applications, spam, and even thieves. This application performs flawlessly and safeguards your device in real-time.

During the setup process you will be asked to log in to your Kaspersky Account. If you don't have one, you can easily create it right from the app using an e-mail address and desired password. As soon as we logged in, we were prompted to scan our device using either Quick scan, Full scan, or Folder scan. The Full scan took less than two minutes, which was surprisingly fast. We also were able to update the app, which took only a couple of seconds. Kaspersky Mobile Security is welcoming and features a well-designed high-end interface. Apart from the expected security features, this app gives you some extras, too. We especially liked its Anti-theft and Self-Defense features. These useful options will let you protect your Android gadget in case it's either lost or stolen; then you'll be able to locate your device and block or wipe it remotely. To use these options, you'll need to activate them and create a secret code. You'll also need this code if you ever want to uninstall the application. Setting the Web Protection option is also very easy, as you only need to set the default Web browser and enable Web Protection so the app can check for and block malicious Web sites before you open them. In addition to all of these features, this app lets you filter calls and texts for spam, which is a very welcome option. There are also some additional settings you can activate or deactivate, such as displaying notifications in the status bar and a neat Home screen widget.

If you're looking for an all-in-one application that can protect your Android smartphone or tablet from viruses, spam messages, and any other unwanted mobile malware in real-time, then Kaspersky Mobile Security is the right choice. It's light, easy to use, and quick. What more could you possibly want?
