McAfee, a leading developer of security solutions, has released an enhanced version of its McAfee Mobile Security platform. The new version of the application features the App Lock service, which is designed to protect a mobile consumer’s privacy while using their smart phone or tablet. The updated McAfee Mobile Security platform also introduces a more streamlined user interface, which is expected to make it easier for mobile consumers to navigate the application’s various features.
Mobile security becoming a growing concern for consumers
Mobile security is becoming a serious issue for mobile consumers around the world. A growing number of people are using their mobile devices to keep track of vital information and to keep track of their finances. This makes these devices very attractive targets for hackers who are keen to exploit this information for personal gain. McAfee, as well as other security companies, have been urging consumers to ensure that their mobile devices are as secure as possible, making use of one or more of the security applications available to them.
App Lock protects popular applications
The McAfee Mobile Security App Lock feature provides consumers with a way to protect their privacy by preventing the malicious use of some of the world’s most popular mobile applications. These applications include Facebook, LinkedIn, and Gmail. These applications are often targeted by hackers in order to gain access to sensitive information. The App Lock feature literally locks these applications, preventing them from being used without authorization from their owner. McAfee believes that the App Lock feature is another layer of protection that consumers can use to ensure the security of their mobile device.
Platform provides array of active protection
The McAfee Mobile Security platform also offers a range of anti-virus and anti-malware features, as well as protection against theft through a comprehensive back-up data storage service. The platform actively monitors a mobile device to guard against mobile security breaches and can also warn consumers of websites that are known to host malicious content.
