AVG launches AntiVirusFree for Android tablets
AVG has extended its anti virus offerings with the launch of AntivirusFree for Android tablets, known as AVG Mobilation for Android. Using a cloud based security platform, AVG states that the app will not hit your battery life too hard and will be able to scan other apps, settings, data and media files for cyber viruses. It also offers a remote wiping facility should you misplace your tablet and a back up option to an SD card. “A mobile device is more personal than your computer at home, as it goes next to your wallet and your house keys and contains relevant data, your contacts, your family photos and memories” said Omri Sigelman, VP of marketing and products at AVG Mobile Solutions.
The AntiVirusFree app is available to download from DroidSecurity.com for free, while the AntiVirusPro costs $9.99.
