Once upon a time, PCs, particularly Windows PCs, were the favorite target of hackers and crackers and anyone that wants to make either a quick buck or just to spread mayhem. Given how more accessible smartphones are these days, they have become the new darlings of miscreants. Android, in particular, has proven to be a favorite for its more open software platform. With this 2-year subscription from ESET Mobile Security for Android, you need not worry too much about keeping your smartphone or tablet safe from predators.

Traditional anti-virus software don’t really apply to mobile platforms, so a major part of securing Android is preventing intrusion in the first place. ESET’s Mobile Security catches those threats even before they can have any effect, from apps to files from external storage. The utility also keeps out spam calls and messages and keeps your data private whenever you shop online. And as a bonus, ESET can let you locate and track down a lost device or, in the worst case scenario, wipe its data remotely.

For all that power, the ESET Mobile Security for Android requires very little in terms of resources. Even smartphones with only 256 MB of RAM and a 500 MHz processor will suffice. It supports devices running something as old as Android 2.3 Gingerbread. And for only $9.95, a 60% savings off the usual $30, you can get protected for two years. What’s not to like? Grab this two-year ESET Mobile Security for Android subscription and enjoy a worry-free Android experience.
