Complete security package for Android phones
F-Secure Mobile Security, now available on Google Play, comes packed with a full-range of powerful safety features. If the Android phone is stolen, it can be remotely locked and all data can be erased on it.

Other cutting-edge functionalities include parental control, safe surfing as well as protection against viruses, spyware and other harmful applications.
As F-Secure’s latest Mobile Threat Report indicates, the numbers of mobile malware families and variants are growing rapidly, especially targeting Android platforms.
