Making your Android phone safe must be a central concern. You have loads of valuable data that’s stored on it. No one wants their personal information getting in the hands of the wrong person. You also don’t want to spend more on a replacement phone. You then need to re-enter every data on this new phone which is really a waste of time. Here are some of the apps to make your phone safe.
The Lookout app has lots of security features like intrusion prevention, antivirus and firewall. The great part is that they’re super lightweight so they don’t clog your phone. Lookout out likewise assists you when your phone is stolen or lost. You are able to log into the web interface on a computer and track your phone. You just click the find button and it will indicate where your phone is on the map. Finally, Lookout also goes with data backup. It is able to back up all of your personal data like contacts, e-mail, text messages, photos and video.
WaveSecure is also a great security app which is much like Lookout. WaveSecure allows you to lock down your phone using the web interface so that it turns useless if you’ve lost your phone. You will be able to display a message and activate an alarm. You are also able to track your phone down with WaveSecure. You can set up an auto-backup or initiate a backup remotely just from the website. The one big capability that WaveSecure offers that Lookout doesn’t is the wipe out feature. You’re able to log into the web interface and wipe all the data from your phone remotely.
Protector is also a great app but it’s unlike the previous 2 apps. Protector grants you to password protect any application on your phone, or any capability of an app. It’s an excellent security program that can be quite beneficial for several users. Protector permits you to password protect any Android app, Gmail, SMS, Settings, Photos, Notepad, e-mail, Calendar, Chat…or whatever you want to put a password on is an option.
You’re able to protect even just a particular feature of an app if you demand to. There’s no work around that would put your apps in danger. Even utilizing a task manager will not keep the apps from losing their protection. If you attempt to uninstall the Protector app, you require the pin code to do so!
The only cons with this app is that there’s no pin retrieval. If you forget your pin you’re completely screwed. That’s a huge gamble, so just be sure you keep it somewhere.
