    Bitdefender Mobile Secuirty to protect your beloved Android

    There are now well over one billion active Android devices around the world, and most are either smartphones or tablets, with a smaller percentage being things like Android TV devices or other console-esque items of technology.

    Therefore a number this large isn't going to be overlooked by those who relish in exploiting the security vulnerabilities that will inevitably be present, no matter how updated the system appears to be. Gone are the days when viruses, digital theft and privacy were exclusive only to the PC; these days, the mobile criminal is well and truly active.

    Most of the time, an Android device, used for just calls or texts, is relatively secure. But once you start installing apps, games and so on, the security tends to drop significantly. A recent study has shown that of over 800,000 free Android apps analyzed, 35% of these can access a user's locations, while almost 3% can leak e-mail addresses, 5% can locate and open photos on users' phones and 10% can read contact lists. Scary stuff, indeed, and that being the case, something needs to be done.

    Bitdefender to the rescue
    The security experts at Bitdefender have been busy preparing the launch of their newest line of defense for mobile users: Bitdefender Mobile Security for Android. Within the app, you'll get four main areas of protection: a malware scanner, a privacy adviser, web security and an anti- theft element.

    The malware scanner has been independently tested to detect, as Bitdefender puts it, "100%, of the bad stuff" . It automatically scans the apps as you install them to locate anything untoward, and it issues a warning should something come up that's in line with the latest signatures as released through the Bit-defender cloud. This means it's constantly up to date and works in the background to keep you protected.

    The Privacy Adviser works by monitoring the activity and behavior of the installed apps on your device. Should one of them suddenly decide to leak your contacts list to an unknown location, then the adviser kicks into action and displays the errant app. Web security works in much the same way as a traditional online protection tool works on your PC. As you browse the internet on your Android device, it actively monitors the site you're accessing and keeps away the nasties as well as helping you to avoid those sites that are designed to foul up your phone.

    The anti-theft element is very a cool feature. It uses a web-based dashboard that will allow you to send SMS commands, lock, go-locate, sound an alarm and wipe your Android from any internet-connected device, should you ever misplace it or have it taken from you. It also allows you to listen in on your phone, alerts you if the SIM card has been changed and allows you to password protect your settings. It's quite a well- featured part of the protection suite and is an impressive selling point in itself, regardless of the other advantages this app offers.

    We need to take mobile security seriously, which is a sorry state of affairs really, so what better then to install an all-encompassing security suite from the people who create protection suites for a living?
