DroidSecurity offers Android security service

August 18, 2009

Many people who are militant about security on the computers don’t think much about security when surfing the net or checking email on their smartphone. A new company called DroidSecurity is offering software for Android devices that will protect users while they are online.

The app costs $5 for a year of service and is a Java-bases antivirus scanner. The application also has a service built-in to help the user find a lost or stolen phone called trace lost. A phone that is turned off will yield the last known location and one that is on will give the real time location.

DroidSecurity has to give Google 30% of the profits from the sale of a year's subscription if the purchase happens through Google. The app is also available on the company's website. So far, over 100,000 people have downloaded the free lite version of the app.
