Kaspersky’s Mobile Security is loaded. With Anti-Theft Protection, the software can delete all personal data if it lost or stolen. Kaspersky will also notify you if your SIM card is removed. These Anti-Theft components are a must have in today’s world.
Amazingly I was just asked how to get rid of unwanted text messages and I was somewhat clueless. With Kaspersky, their Anti-Malware Protection blocks these messages and helps keep your computer free from any kind of infection. How? If you synchronize your device with your computer, Kaspersky helps to keep malware at bay. With internet connectivity and downloads coming directly from the web, these devices are vulnerable.
Like more expensive software that protects your laptops, the Anti-Theft Protection of Kaspersky can be used to delete your confidential assets remotely. Not tested was the ability to find out who the new owner of your device is if your mobile device is stolen - Kaspersky has this feature built in! With SIM Watch, you can track back your SIM card and delete as necessary. This feature would be invaluable if theft ever happened to you.
