Trend Micro Mobile Security

Trend Micro has launched an updated version of its Mobile Security app for Google Android. The new app continues to offer parental controls, filtering options for incoming phone calls and text messages, and protection from malicious websites. But Version 2.0 adds a few new features including:

  • An app scanner that prevents you from installing infected apps
  • A tool that lets you locate, lock, or remotely wipe data from a lost phone or tablet
  • Improved web browsing, phone call, and text message security features

Honestly, there’s not a lot here that we haven’t seen from other mobile security apps from ESET, Symantec, Bitdefender, Lookout, or AVG, just to name a few. But at least there’s a free 30 day trial of all the premium features.

After your time is up you can either pay $29.99 for a one year subscription or continue using the app scanner for free.

Trend Micro Mobile Security is available as a free download from the Android Market.
