Best Free Antivirus App for Android 6 years 3 months ago IO.Hazard It was my pleasure, MC. Let's hope our readers like it as you do. :D view
Best Free Antivirus App for Android 6 years 3 months ago EricCRZ

Many thanks for the updated review! Something I always look forward to reading.

I downloaded and running CM Security which I find is a great product. I use it in combination with Mr. Number for blocking Calls and texts and AppLock to protect uninstallation, Settings and PlayStore and seems to all be working seamlessly. CM Security will be having an anti-theft which simply integrates with your Android Device Manager. It's currently in beta.

On a similar note. Comodo Mobile security since version 3.4.5 released 02nd March does act as Device Administrator and there were a large number of fixes to the Optimizer (Cache cleaner/task killer). CMS's built-in App Locker under the Private Space now allows you to lock CMS itself along with settings/playstore and any other app you choose. I'd use it myself but my phone has a very low resolution and therefore not fully compatible but I downloaded via the forum download and can confirm all the features work though it's not scanning my full SD Card on my device only scanning SDcard0 and not the External Card.

I did try Malwarebytes and may come back to it when it develops further.

Thanks again for reviewing these products!

Well, 360 security do include anti-theft option. And according to AV-test in March 2014 the 360 security's protection is given full rating.

For me, CM security uses a lot of RAM all the time(runs 2 processes) and quite a bit of CPU when receiving SMS (what I noticed anyway). Unfortunately my phone isn't super high end and can't afford extra use of resources. Just figured I'd let people know so they are prepared. If others have better luck, let me know.

view
Best Free Antivirus App for Android 6 years 2 months ago IO.Hazard If you've read the intro, you should have noticed we don't consider the anti-theft as 'a must', and we explained why. We never said 360 was a bad app. Its only problem is it includes too many permissions, even for a security app. Its installation size has grown too, as it includes more features than previous versions, which is not bad, but could be too much for users who only want anti-malware protection. view
Best Free Antivirus App for Android 6 years 2 months ago IO.Hazard The only time CM Security opens a second process is while downloading definitions updates. The rest of the time it only uses a single process, even with the 'safe browsing' option enabled. Have you installed another anti-malware app besides CMS? That could create some conflicts and cause your RAM usage to increase a lot. You don't need a high end phone to run CMS. I've seen it running on 'old' phones with Android 4.0.4 and 512MB of RAM. However, if you are using JellyBean 4.1 or up, things can be totally different as the OS consumes a lot of RAM itself, leaving too little for third party apps. JellyBean needs a device with 768MB of RAM at least to run decently, according to Google. Sadly, many manufacturers make devices with 512MB of RAM with JellyBean installed on them. That's their a way to create 'low-budget' phones which, in the end, won't perform as good as you would like to. **MAY 9th UPDATE** CM's latest version has confirmed our previous concern. Its RAM usage has increased more than twice, and enabling the bundled Anti-theft only makes it worse. Will the next update fix that? We sincerely hope so. view

Spy probably meant the newest version of 360MS now includes an anti-theft component. I read the intro and the explanation about the anti-theft seems logical.

Nonetheless, removing 360MS from the top was a surprise to me, as it worked like charm for me. I read the comments below as well as some posts in the forum that attack the app with no reason, basing their comments on problems some users had with old DESKTOP versions of 360. I read the permissions and they look legit for me, especially when you consider the things 360MS can do.

The size of this app has increased, that's true, but I keep using it and has protected me from various kinds of malware since I installed it based on your initial suggestion. I know creating lists like this demand time and effort, and I thank you for that, but next time try following your knowledge and expertise instead of listening to trolls or people who like to bash products they don't like. CMSecurity looks good and I will give it a try, eventually, maybe when I get tired of my current security app.

Anyway, you deserve cheers for a job well done. Thank you.

I had that issue with TrustGO months ago. The weird thing is no other app detected the same, even after a scan with VirusTotal. However, VirusTotal did detect a pair of ad-ware based apps that TrustGo had no idea of :P.

I decided to test CM and it was fine until the last update. Guess what? The memory footprint has skyrocketed! I'm talking about 80 MB of RAM. What gives? I disabled the anti theft and it went down to 45 MB, but I found it too high anyway, so I uninstalled it.

Companies think all of us have phones with 2GB or more of RAM. I'm not buying that scheme. I can live far better by installing other free apps that are not so demanding.

view
Best Free Antivirus App for Android 6 years 1 month ago IO.Hazard Thanks for pointing that up. I noticed that increase in CM's RAM usage too. Not good. I will wait to see if this is a just a temporary thing (bug?) or a definitive major change. Anyway, I don't see any advantage in using the included anti-theft as it increases the RAM usage levels and does not provide any major benefit than Google's device locator. view
Best Free Antivirus App for Android 6 years 1 month ago IO.Hazard Hi, CM security was updated yesterday to v1.3.1. The app itself is still good, but the RAM usage levels have skyrocketed as some users below reported weeks ago. We were hoping a new version to confirm if that increase was due to a bug or something similar, sadly that's not the case. In normal mode (one single process on the background) the RAM levels were within the 38 to 45 MB range. Add about 10 MB to that while updating (2nd process) but if you enable the Anti-theft the picture gets worse... 70 to 90 MB of RAM! I never used an app with such a high demand for RAM. Not good at all. I'm looking for alternatives for the next review, as CM Security cannot be considered a top app nor user-friendly with those high RAM requirements. I just opened a new thread in our forum regarding this issue. Feel free to post your comments and thoughts about this. Your feedback would help a lot. view
Best Free Antivirus App for Android 6 years 1 month ago IO.Hazard Many thanks for your early warning. I know it's been almost a month since you post and my response, but I had hoped the developers would fix that high demand for RAM in future versions. Please, refer to my latest post for specific info about the RAM requirements as well as potential alternatives for the next review in our forum. Thanks. view

Without any offense, its clearly written above in the article as: "... Even though it lacks things such as an Anti-theft or a Firewall, 360's design and features compensate that loss...."

I tested it, its firewall works, as well as its anti-theft.

I just said it does not lack anti-theft.

May I ask what you think the problematic/intrusive permissions are with 360 Security?
To me the permissions 360 security ask for are pretty similar to that of CM Security, your current top pick.

CM Security sucks ?
I installed CM Security on my Android device. I never had any security probs but installed it just in case.
Now I am harassed with regular adds. Really annoying. AND IT IS COMING FROM CM SECURITY ITSELF ! !

What is this for crazy program. Suggesting to protect you and then harassing you themselves! Like the police starting to steal from you !
Perhaps the program needs some reevaluating and the readers of your great site warned for the double standards of this company ! !

I was so glad when I found Dr. Web Antivirus Light. I didn't want remote wipe/lock or any of that - just the anti-malware. I have been using this for over a year now and, along with common sense, haven't had any issues. Additionally, on a 3.5 year old phone with 2GB Ram, there was no slowdown, and per GSam Battery monitor, it uses less than almost any other app, barely 0.1% of battery life. If you just want a solid real-time and on-demand scanner, it's really one of the only options but thankfully it's a good one too

There is now a new reason to browse anonymously: dynamic pricing! More people are telling me that when shopping on-line, if they show a lot of interest in a product, the price goes up! If you encounter dynamic pricing, then you might want to do your comparison shopping anonymously and only expose yourself when you are ready to make the actual purchase. It would not surprise me at all if web sites are checking the price that you were quoted at a competing site.

Best Free Anonymous Surfing Services 7 years 4 months ago gen-X That is very interesting indeed. I am not entirely surprised to hear about this, but you have confirmed my suspicions for sure.

When I went back to it the following day, the price at all three sites had gone up and yet when I connected using my laptop and mobile broadband, the original offer was still available. :) view

You need to edit the part that says:
"Services like HideMy*** can be seen as trustworthy, as they have a good track record in the business of anonymisation and proxies."

That is completely false. They aid authorities in your arrest if they dislike what you did "anonymously". Read this: theatlanticwire.com/technology/2011/09/lulzsec-hacker-exposed-service-he-thought-would-hide-him/42895/

No matter the rationalization HideMyAss uses, this comment sums it up: "If hidemyass turns their users in and logs them for every access, then hidemyass is not 100% anonymous as they claim."

Best Free Anonymous Surfing Services 7 years 4 months ago gen-X Hi, gamingexpert13. I can appreciate your angst. I share it. The quote was not mine, but it appeared before I assumed this position. Even so, I am not going to dodge my responsibility because it is still up there, and I am now here. I read the article. News articles about controversial subjects are seldom unbiased. Am I correct in assuming that your disagreement is with the claim in regard to HideMy*** only, or are you claiming more broadly in general that VPN services should not be trusted ipso facto? The distinction is important. If this VPN service kept logs above and beyond those required by law and then handed them over to legal authorities promiscuously because it was convenient, that would be a violation of "trust", not an exemplary exercise of it such as we should expect of a service alleging to be supportive of anonymity. Can you provide me with any other factual evidence substantiating your claim that HideMy*** is not in this sense trustworthy? I would like to see more information about this incident or something else about this company along these lines. Thanks. view
Best Free Anonymous Surfing Services 7 years 4 months ago mr6n8 This is the company's response to the publicity from that incident. http://blog.hidemyass.com/2011/09/23/lulzsec-fiasco/ HMA does "log the time you connect and disconnect from our service, we do not log in any shape or form your actual internet traffic." I do not know what the UK (location of HMA) laws are regarding records. HMA says they keep the logs to prevent abuse. I do know quite a few other VPNs maintain no logs, but that may have to do with their jurisdiction. view

Best Free Anonymous Surfing Services 7 years 4 months ago gen-X Hi, Juxxize. I feel your pain! You're not alone, even when it seems that way. I'm not sure what you use for anonymity when browsing, but if you have a fast connection to begin with, you should be able to maintain a goodly amount of anonymity without compromising your experience all that much. Anonymity is not an all or nothing condition. It is relative. Acquiring it requires not just changing one or another software programs, but in changing your mindset. You have to change habits, settings and behavior. You have to start thinking about it in all that you do, asking yourself about how you might be revealing traces of your identity and activity in ways that you prefer to avoid. The primary means by which others learn about you is through your browser and your browsing activities. Focus on it at first and continually. Ask questions about it here and other places where the subject of anonymity is discussed. It is not as restrictive as it might seem. For starters, one thing to keep in mind is that you should avoid doing things that allow you to be partitioned. You want rather to be inconspicuous and to blend in as part of as large a group as possible. You don't want something about you to stand out atypically of others around you. For example, you may want to avoid referring to your gender as female by using personal pronouns such as you did with "her" and "she" because typically it is men who blend in together online and women immediately draw more interest and attention. Avoid it if you can. Likewise, you do not want to have the appearance of using software programs that partition you uniquely or into a smaller group than the average person might use. This does not mean that you have to use an average software program; it means you have "to appear" to use one, or to conceal that you are not, and that is different than actually using one.

Hi gen-x. Thanks for the reports and the q&a!

I have recently tried Hot Spot Shield and Cyberghost and found the following:

HSS works and is fast but I don't trust them. They are Canadian and I think that the government is more insidious than the US without the personal freedoms of the constitution. They seem to want a lot of info and they log a lot.

The big thing I found is that they BLOCK all bit-torrent. I read every document I could find and no where does it tell you this. They say they block some things they consider illegal. Bit-torrent is not illegal and they should keep their nose out of peoples private online activities, especially when they take money to provide premium services without telling you what they block!

Free Cyberghost works great and pretty much as you described but it is not limited to Germany. In the free version it will not let you choose your server but the default server always seems to be the closest one to your location. I have also not been limited to 1gb. You do have to register but you do not have give valid information and the user information gets you logged on just fine.

Some service that require specific information won't work (email) but they let you exclude specific domains so you can pass thru your email if you choose. This also works well. I think they are doing some kind of split tunneling to achieve that.

Thanks again!

I just have found an interesting article about 'How to protect ourselves from hackers'. It is available here:

http://blog.hotspotshield.com/2013/08/08/how-to-protect-yourself-from-ha...

One quote from the article:

"According to the Trustwave’s 2013 Global Security Report, cyber-security threats are increasing as quickly as we can implement measures against them. Hackers have lots of different ways to steal your private data and information. And the main reason why hackers go after your personal information is identity theft!

Over the past year, there have been roughly 12.6 million victims of identity theft – or, to put it into perspective, one victim every three seconds. No matter how safe you think you’re being online, chances are you’re making at least a few mistakes that compromise the integrity of your personal information."

About Hotspot Shield:

"Hotspot Shield VPN is the ultimate Internet security solution that secures your browsing session, detects and blocks malware, protects your privacy and allows you to access blocked sites. Hotspot Shield is available both as a free VPN and a paid Hotspot Shield Elite subscription.

Key Benefits to using Hotspot Shield:

- Secure your web session, data, online shopping, and personal information online with HTTPS encryption.

- Protect yourself from identity theft online.

- Secure your IP address for your privacy online and private browsing.

- Access all content privately without censorship; bypass firewalls.

- Protect yourself from snoopers at Wi-Fi hotspots, hotels, airports and corporate offices.

- VPN client works on both wireless and wired connections. Provides Unlimited Bandwidth. [!!]

- Works on PC and Mac, including new operating systems (Windows 8 and Mountain Lion)."

Even if their product has received many awards - including from CNN, New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and Business Week Intl. -, I would like that the editor of this rubric to test the FREE version of Hotspot Shield; and then, to tell us his opinion about the program.-

It seems there is a lot of contradictory info going around. As has been noted elsewhere, there isn't any body to consistently benchmark and evaluate the VPNs according to speed, logging, anonymity etc.

Here's another article I've found with different info again about Hotspot Shield. The upshot is no, probably not the most trustworthy one out there and not the most anonymous. In cahoots with google according to this http://howtodoit.eu/learn-how-to-install-and-use-hotspot-shield-vpn-soft...

It stuffs up -well not IT exactly, but google- stuff up gmail in the email client, because of their infuriatingly intrusive geolocation login validation 4rsholery. Apparently doesn't work with Bittorrent. therefore those who also don't really need it for general surfing may judge it not much use.

I wonder whether more voracious reading of user comments will elucidate things or whether there's just a whole tangle of misinformation out there.

I been using SecurityKiss for the past months but then last week something weird happened - I am automatically disconnected every unknown minutes, even though I am connected to the internet. And this morning, as I am using the service, it always disconnect, thus, risking my connection. What is happening to SecurityKiss?

For now, I am using Tor Browser Bundle (as I write this). And I did not find any problem with this. As for the speed, it is okay (beyond medium, with the fact that I am using broadband). This Tor is promising.

My suggestion: Please update this, because some of the programs are updated - like Cyberghost which is in 5.*, SecurityKiss is i 0.3.0 and Tor Browser Bundle which is 3.6.

Anyway, thank you for the list. Keep up the good work. :)

Chris PC I haven't tried for a few years but this may be useful:

If you are going to install it, check the Privacy Agreement and see if you are about to accept a company called "Relevant Knowledge" is going to be allowed to track and retain every site you surf.

If you have installed it and review the above and decide to uninstall it, after you have uninstalled it, go to Windows Services and see if there's a programme called "Relevant Knowledge" set to "automatic" (automatically load on boot). If there is, set it to "disabled".

Of course they may not still do this or the name may have changed but worth looking.

I thought it a bit odd for an anonymous surfing proxy to be recording every site I surfed.

Best Free Anonymous Surfing Services 5 years 4 months ago Ratzo An interesting note from Securitykiss PPTP discontinued 2014-12-17 We knew for a long time that the PPTP connection method was very broken and since Snowden it was known that PPTP had been compromised by the NSA. In SecurityKISS we kept the PPTP service running because it was easiest to set up on mobile phones and tablets. We were warning users that they should not expect confidentiality from PPTP. It was targetted at users who needed to change their IP address for video streaming and where confidentiality was not of paramount importance. There is an old saying in the security world: "there is always a tradeoff between security and convenience". We believe we were standing too long on the wrong side of that tradeoff and today we concluded that the warning is not enough so we decided to discontinue PPTP service in SecurityKISS view

As I am far from being an expert of VPNs, I have a simple question...

It is said that many VPN suppliers collects informations about you. Is that possible to conceal our true IP to a VPN supplier by using, beside the VPN itself, a software which has for unique task to change our IP ?

If these two softwares (VPN and IP hider) may work together, will the IP hider software change my IP between my computer and the VPN supplier or will it change the IP that the VPN supplier creates to hide my real IP ?

Please, I would like that nobody tells me that the VPN is supplying a new IP and that I don't need a IP hider, that is not the question here.

At the comments about Safe-mail it is said you get "a whopping 3 MB of storage".
Surely you mean 3 GB?

Hello,
You ask for feedback to improve articles here. Great.

First, thank you for a well written and informative article.
Secondly, in the article under emails, it states in several places a HEADS UP that an email is public: "all mailboxes are public." Could the author (or anyone else) elaborate please what this means in this specific context, as it is not clear.

Thank you.

I have done both computer hardware and software design since 1985. Owning my own computer company for a couple decades has filled my retirement years with opportunities to work for the greater good in computers which is all done free of charge. I'm looking for some animation software which is not to expensive where I can make minor changes to photos and create gif animation files. I could use my Adobe Account to get what I need but I've given them enough over the years. I did 10 solid years in software design so I might have time to work on projects here but my community service work comes first. I need no income, life has been good to me. I'm not saying I won't help but I'm not looking for a job either.

I had no idea what to write here so I just like it is.

Regards,

FYI
MS GIF Animator comes from Softronic which includes this in their EULA:

"In addition, a toolbar will be offered, and it shall change the User’s home page, default search settings and 404 error traffic, in the event the User selects such options."

The install option is set by default to install and includes this paragraph:

"By choosing to install and automatically enable the appbario19 Toolbar and SearchProtect in your web browser and set the search features you agree to these products’ terms, license agreements, and privacy policies. I also agree to the Value Apps terms and privacy policies, which may include third-party apps that may access, collect, and use your personal data, including your IP address and the address and content of web pages you visit.

Gif Ap works ... PhotoScape comes with a bunch of unwanted software ... MIcrosoft Gif Animator appears to only read already made gifs and opens them up but does not create new gifs.

view
Best Free Animated GIF Maker 6 years 5 months ago Jojo Yee Different from your finding chefleez, Microsoft GIF Animator did allow for creating, editing and saving as new animated gif files with no issue as I tested it on Windows 7. view

Sorry my previous comment had some text missing. GifAnimator worked fine. MicrosoftsGifAnimator only opened existing gifs I could not see how to create a new on with Microsoft gif animator.

Thanx for bringing this to my atention.

view
Best Free Animated GIF Maker 6 years 5 months ago Jojo Yee You're welcome chefleez. You will need to have individual gif files ready for input to Microsoft GIF Animator, which shall then combine them and save as a new animated gif file. If you have image files in other formats, try some free products suggested at Best Free Digital Image Editor to convert them to gif formats before using Microsoft GIF Animator. I hope I've got your point right. view

Hi! I read through the products...and er, wondering if there is any features that you didn't list that includes animating by dragging the mouse around while the program records your movements?

Like, you drew a happy face, then select happy face, and press record, and you move the happy face around with your mouse to make it dance. then hit Stop Recording and you can play back the animation.

Do any of the programs you listed do that? Yeah I saw the features listed, but maybe it wasn't important enough to mention? Just checking :D

Because I've been searching for the past 2 days looking for such a program. I remember I had such a program many many years ago (when I was using the new Windows XP system). For the life of me, I can't remember the name or what the interface looked like.

It may not even be an animated gif program. I'm desperately going around the internet asking people now. Thanks if you or any of the users here know of a program that can do this type of mouse-recorded animation! :)

view
Best Free Animated GIF Maker 6 years 2 months ago Sahil Waste Hi Shan, What you are looking for is not a animation program but a screen capturing utility, a screen capturing utility can capture dancing smiling face dragged by mouse. But, as per my knowledge it is not possible with gif animators, if in case i am wrong please correct me, as i love to know this. ;) But if you are looking for something similar to this(i created this as an example): http://tinypic.com/r/213ncbd/8 I created this with the help of: 1. A screen session recorder and 2. A Paint program you can also create something similar with the help of these or similar products, Please refer to our Best Free Paint Program(http://www.techsupportalert.com/best-free-paint-program.htm) and Best Free Screen Session Recorder(http://www.techsupportalert.com/best-free-screen-session-recorder.htm) sections. If you need further help, you can drop a reply here or post a topic in our forum (http://www.techsupportalert.com/freeware-forum) ----- Sahil :) view

There's a game... I think it's called 3D Cats or 3D Flying Cats.... it's pretty addictive too but is a battery drainer. The cat meoows when you crash sometimes growls a bit, actumy feel bad for smashing his rocket into a wall.

Es file explorer is universally the best file manager in terms of simplicity and options. Have used it on both HTC and Samsung.

SuperSU is better than Superuser IMHO especially now with the new updates.

Google Drive is awesome for storage space and versatility as you can open and create virtually anything using docs without having to install office software. Kingston Office I think its called is an amazing free office manager of you want one.

Titanium Backup and My Backup are great apk and data tools. My SMS backup is handy too.

I use win amp for music player but Apollo is great as well.

Audiogalaxy no longer seems to be available on GooglePlay, and the website is also unavailable. This should probably be removed from the Best list. Does anyone know of an alternative?

Great list Jojoyee!
I myself love to play games on my phone some now and then. I am a huge fan of racing games and I found GT Racing: Motor Academy Free+ to be one of the best free games around. It is a 400MB download, but if you have a WiFi connection it's worth downloading it.
