Default Mobile security AVs review

September 2012 (AV-Comparatives release).






As soon as technology advances, new ways to enjoy the portability and freedom of a mobile device arise. Share photos, send sms, chat on Facebook or tweet are common tasks for everyday living. Today you can control your computer media player, or even the full OS. And the improvements are not outside to the world of mobile threats. So the need of new ways of protect your device and personal information is almost mandatory.

So I invite you to read the latest report on mobile protection. You will see how well performs your installed AV, or just pick a new one, and free as Avast or Comodo.

Here is the link to the English report:

Wow! Quite a comprehensive report, that one.

Thanks a lot for the link.

This will help users choose an antivirus for their mobile.

Great to see Avast perform quite well, and is the recommended one for free users.

Still have to read the whole report, it's quite big.

Thanks my friend!
Yes, it's an in-depth report.
It has some technical data for advanced user but, I'm pretty sure average user can trust on awards and pick on of the top .

A highly useful resource.

As someone not yet "i-enabled" , I find the many reports about privacy and security vulnerabilities in mobile devices highly alarming. Many apps can seemingly grant themselves access to your whole mobile life and do with it as they please. There also seems to be little control by the app store maintainers until long after something has been seen to be abusing their privileges.

On behalf of a friend whose teenage daughter is fighting for one of these things, I asked my tech what was the best security setup for a mobile app and he said "don't get one"

You remind me a song composed by some guy James Hetfield: sad but true ♪♫

Also :m ← (fist in mouth, thinking) I'm happy you are not hipnotized with a couple of lights (another song cross my mind but I don't want you think I'm working for music industry) City of blind lights. Whatever, evrything is privacy ripper (that sounds hard) . You read about UDID leak? UDID is like a hardware identifier for each i-crap.

Link to news

FBI denied existence of proofs about leaked UDIDS.
So, Anon replies:

LOL I'm very happy to read all of this as a pure spectator. My only claim to mobile fame is the cheapest Samsung flip phone it was possible to buy here two years ago, but hey it makes calls and has an FM radio!

I'm glad to hear that. I mean, I don't either use a phone or tablet. Only when testing or... testing. You mentioned Samsung . Sure you already read this


I think Japanese enjoy all the little things of life... like coins. And want to share its lifestyle with everyone but, Apple is so classic
