If our readers can recall, then in an earlier post we presented a report on the top 20 Android malware. In this post, we tell you how Quick Heal can help protect your Android devices from the ever-growing malware threat.
Android malware growth since 2012
As of September 2013, the Android OS holds over 91% market share in India, while it has 51% in the U.S. market. Android’s ever growing popularity and staggering market share is acting as a syrup attracting malware artists from all the dark and dingy corners of the world. Unfortunately, most people do not think about mobile security as much as they think about securing their home and office computers. While most users are oblivious to the risks of mobile malware, others are not aware that a reliable mobile antivirus software can save a good deal of trouble if their device gets lost or stolen.
Quick Heal Total Security for Android brings to you a range of features that can wall your Android against all kinds of malware threats:
As the name suggests, this feature helps you track your phone in case it is stolen or lost.
