Security is not something one can afford to take for granted so easily anymore, especially considering how much our lives and identities have become tied to our mobile devices. That is why anti-malware company Malwarebytes is bringing its expertise and tools to Android with the Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Mobile app.

With its ever-rising popularity and ubiquity, Android has become an even bigger target for miscreants hoping to make a buck or two or do even worse damage with sensitive information contained within smartphones and tablets. Even with Google insisting on the inherent security of the platform, there will definitely be those who can’t be too careful and would want to have an independent safety measure installed. It is for these and for other security-conscious Android users that Malwarebytes has made available its PC security system for Android.

Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Mobile has your standard security features such as a catalog of over 200 malware types and variants, automatically updating malware database, and proactive scanning of third-party applications and files. But more than just an anti-malware detector and cleaner, the app features other interesting abilities. It has a Privacy Manager that helps users analyze which apps are accessing which personal information or network features that could be costing you monthly charges. A Secure Audit feature detects and warns users about potential vulnerabilities in device settings such as GPS tracking or insecure WiFI. There is also an Application Manager which keeps tabs on running apps and services in order to identify and terminate suspicious activities.

For all these features, the Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Mobile app is, surprisingly, available free of charge and can be downloaded now from Google Play Store through the link below.
