An Android report by AV-Test showed that this particular app had the highest rank for these devices.
According to the most recent mobile security lab report that was issued by AV-Test, it was the McAfee app that received the highest rank in a number of different areas for smartphones based on that operating system.
According to McAfee, its smartphone solution offers flexibility and enhances privacy protection.
In order to benefit from McAfee, a monthly subscription option is available. Its mobile security received the top score within the most recent tests that were conducted by AV-Test, which is an independent testing lab. This placed the app at the top of a list of 26 other leading companies that were included in the study in order to produce the report.
McAfee also took that time to announce that it has updated its mobile security app with new controls and features.
The company stated that its mobile security application now has boosted privacy controls, as well as the option to take part in a monthly subscription for tablets and smartphones based on the Android operating system.
The reason that this information is important is that smartphones and tablets are undergoing a growing mobile security risk as cyber criminals now go to greater length to infect apps that will be downloaded from trusted sources, such as the official marketplace at Google Play. According to a recently released report, the average consumer with an Android device has a risk of one in six of downloading an app with some type of malware or malicious elements.
In the case of the AV-Test results that have just been reported, it indicated that McAfee’s app can help to provide consumers with mobile security and privacy that is easy to use and that is effective. In the four different areas that were tested, the app was able to achieve a perfect 100% score of 13 out of 13. The company detected all of the malware family and samples in the test, it did not produce a single false positive, it did not reduce the device battery life, and it did not slow down the normal usage of the device.
