Looking for a great security app for your cell phone but don’t know where to start? There are hundreds of different apps that you can use to keep your data safe, use for parental control software or even use to keep your employees online.
Security apps have thousands of applications so you can definitely find one for anything that you want to do. Before you go looking for security apps, decide what you are looking for, how much you are going to pay for it and then search. You’re sure to find something for your phone and your phone’s operating system.
Antivirus App – An antivirus app is unfortunately necessary if you have a Windows 8, Android or Blackberry phone. While you can find some antivirus apps for Apple, they are few and far between but still useful. Did you know that about 25% of spammers and hackers are now targeting mobile devices with their malicious software? If you aren’t protected, you could be losing your important personal data! Great options include mobile versions of popular antivirus systems such as Norton or etc.
Parental Control – Keeping your kid’s safe is important and we all want to do our part. If you’ve given your kids a phone you have to worry about cyber bullying inappropriate content and even sexting. In fact, it’s estimated that about 70% of kids either sext or share inappropriate photos! You can use parental software including mobile spy apps like mSpy or etc. or you can learn more about your parental control options and have your kids show you their phones every night. However, this won’t prevent them from texting something naughty and then deleting it.
Phone Tracking – Whether you want to know where your phone is if you lose it or it gets stolen or want to know where the owner of a phone is, phone tracking apps are invaluable. Mobile spy apps will usually contain features that will let you accurately track the exact GPS location of any phone as long as it has battery and internet.
There are hundreds if not thousands of free security apps you can download, but you should remember that the best ones will probably cost money. Most good antivirus apps will cost a yearly subscription and so will any parental control or phone tracking apps you decide to download. You and your families, safety is important, especially on your mobile phone.
In the interests of security it’s best to lock your machine as soon as you leave it. Perhaps more relevant to an iMac over a MacBook (as im sure you would never leave your MacBook unattended) but still important either way.
Hello all, as most of you will know my site runs on the Joomla CMS backend, which has a full time team of developers fixing security issues and bugs etc on a regular basis.. I have recently found a brilliant tool called Joomla Magic Updater. I am shortly going to be using it to upgrade my Joomla install to the latest available release. During the update I expect some downtime on the site. However, it should be kept to a minimum and will hopefully be back online before anyone notices.
