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.[via NetworkWorld]
