mobile security apps
Mobile security apps are applications designed for smartphone and tablet mobile devices to protect and secure the device and its data from unauthorized access in the case of theft or accidental loss. Some mobile security apps can also help users locate their device if it’s lost or stolen.
Additional security features typically offered by mobile security apps include malware detection and removal, VPN connectivity for protecting data in transit, scanning websites for potential phishing schemes or other fraudulent activity and more.
Whereas most of the mobile security apps in Apple’s iOS are built into the mobile operating system, numerous third-party mobile security apps are available for Google’s Android mobile OS platform, Microsoft’s Windows Phone and, to a lesser extent, iOS. Well-known security companies like Norton, McAfee, Lookout, BitDefender and ESET offer mobile security apps for Android, Microsoft Windows Phone and/or iOS.
