It looks like people need to be more and more aware of what they are downloading or clicking on when they are using the internet on their mobile devices. And what better help in a time of need than an antivirus that can best fit to what you desire from it? Today we are going to give you 3 options for your Apple phones and tablets.
Number 1: McAfee Mobile Security
This is a free and secure app for your phone that can help you fight the battle against malware. Does it have any out of this world options that can rock your world? Not in the way you might think but this is a very reliable app for users of all ages.
This app lets you hide and encrypt your photos and it makes you the only person able to see them by request either Face ID or Touch ID to open them. Pretty neat for those out there that want to treasure their privacy. When it comes to anti-theft options, the app not only lets you activate basic features like activating the silent alarm or the map location but it also takes a snapshot and sends it to you if someone wants to get in your encrypted picture vault which would, hopefully, give you a picture of the person who stole your iPhone.
The app is very versatile, as it allows you to remove your contacts remotely if your phone is stolen and even provide a battery check function that can be used from your Apple watch.
Number 2: Avira Mobile Security
It is well-known already that Avira is by far one of the best, if not the best anti-virus software out there. The mobile version is also pretty good. There is a feature named Identity Safeguard that scans your email addresses and alerts you if they were leaked online or if there was a security breach. Another interesting thing about it is that it has a Contacts Backup option which lets you protect your address book or forward it to Google Drive or Dropbox for you to have it and keep it safe.
More basic features include you having the option to analyze your storage and memory use and an anti-theft option.
Number 3: Trend Micro Mobile Security
If the two previous options were free, we’d also like to present you an app that has plenty of good features but that costs a bit in order for you to use it. How much? It costs $3 every month and if you decide to pay for two years you get a small discount, paying only about $2 per month. That is a deal, if we may say so.
What does the app offer? Well, Trend Micro Mobile Security gives you a private web browser which is a very good step in preventing you from coming into contact with malicious websites or annoying pop-ups. It is also able to scan your Twitter or your Facebook and report on it if the app finds anything that could endanger your privacy.
Most importantly, the app has a built in feature that filters malicious or phishing type of websites which works on Safari and other browsers as well. It is also able to speed webpage load up time and cut data usage, which we have all at one time been concerned with.
We believe that these three apps are all very good in their respective ways. We do not have a clear winner as all these apps help keep you safe online. We recommend that you choose the one whose features attract you the most.
