F-Secure Safe for Smartphone & Tablet is an application designed to improve the security of your mobile device. It includes several different features, which can make your entire mobile experience a safer, more secure one. If you're worried about your mobile data security, this application could be a good option for you.


Secure browsing: The primary feature of this app is the secured Web browser that you can access from inside of it. If you've ever been worried about making purchases or conducting business online from your phone, this great feature offers you some piece of mind and some real protection from potential threats.

Security advisor: This is a handy feature that takes a quick snapshot of the security situation of your phone and provides you with a report. If your phone's sandbox has been compromised or if there is another security vulnerability created by jailbreaking, the app will advise you.


Cluttered interface: The interface is slightly cluttered and confusing. It could certainly be streamlined.

Lack of instruction: After installing the app on your phone or tablet, there is very little instruction on how to use it. There is also no clear way to find a help menu or explanations in the app itself. Trial and error seems to be the only way to make your way through it.

Bottom Line

F-Secure Safe for Smartphone & Tablet provides you with a security blanket of sorts for your mobile browsing. We should certainly all take our online privacy and security seriously. However, it is difficult to get started with this app, due to an unclear and cluttered interface.
