TrustGo Antivirus and Mobile Security is a comprehensive security solution for all of your Android devices. In the free version of the app, it offers protection from malware, detects fake payment apps, helps find stolen/lost phone, locks apps with a password/pattern, backs up your data, and helps manage the apps installed in your device.
After the installation, it runs a full system scan and finds out if your device is infected with malware, has insecure settings or has a known vulnerability. It can remove the infected or malicious apps, suggests you to fix the insecure settings and can also fix some of the vulnerabilities.
You can swipe up the screen to find many more features that TrustGo Antivirus and Mobile Security offers such as:
AppLocker – Using this feature, you can lock any of other apps with a pattern. You have to select one or more of the installed apps and then set a pattern lock. Now if you try to launch the locked apps, you are displayed a pattern lock screen and you must draw the correct pattern to access your app.
Payment Protection – It can detect if you have some fake/rogue payment apps installed in your device. Such fake apps have the same icon and interface as the official payment apps like your bank’s app or PayPal, but they are not official app. Using these apps puts your financial information (credit cards/debit cards, online banking accounts etc) at risk.
Data Backup – You can backup and restore all of your text messages, phone call records, and contacts in just one tap. This is very useful if you accidentally remove an important message or contact from your mobile phone and later want to restore it back.
Privacy Advisor – If you install new apps in your phone, this feature should be used to see what kind of permissions each of these installed apps have in your device. Some of these apps have more than needed permissions which could poses a security risk.
App Manager – It allows you to easily remove the apps from your device. You can also do this from Android system settings, but it saves you from switching to system settings when you are scanning your phone for malware and cleaning it up.
TrustGo Antivirus and Mobile Security, once installed, keeps protecting your device from malicious apps and monitors all the files being downloaded or the websites you visit. It blocks the threats before they have time to infect your device. It can also boost your device’s performance by optimizing the memory usage and can extend battery life by closing down some of the background apps.
