McAfee Mobile Security software provides:
- Anti-virus, Anti-spyware and Anti-phishing Protection: Scans for malicious code from files, memory cards, applications, Internet downloads and text messages
- Protection from Potentially Unwanted Programs: McAfee is the first to protect users from applications that include commercial spyware, adware and dialers, despite the fact that these programs may have been downloaded in conjunction with a program that the user wants
- Web Protection: McAfee SiteAdvisor protects against Web threats by blocking risky links within SMS, email and social networking sites. It also safeguards against potential phishing sites, browser exploits and malicious quick response (QR) codes.
- Anti-theft Protection:
Device Lock: Prevents misuse of the users phone and personal data by remotely locking all data, including the data on the memory (SIM) card, and displaying a "contact me" message on the device
Remotely Wipe Data: Protects the users privacy by remotely deleting the data on the phone and removable memory card. It can also back up data before the remote wipe to prevent the loss of data on the device.
Backup and Restore Data: Preserves irreplaceable personal information on demand, on a schedule, or before wiping a missing smartphone, then restores information to the new device
Locate and Track: Helps users to recover their smartphone if it is lost or stolen. Users can view the devices location on a map, send an SMS to prompt its return, and use a remote alarm to make it "scream"
- App Protection: McAfee App Alert for Android helps users keep private data private by interpreting how apps are accessing and possibly transmitting personal data
- Call and SMS Filtering: Easily filters out spammers, incorrect numbers and unwanted texts
- Online Management: The McAfee Web portal lets users quickly execute needed security tasks, such as backup, restore, locate, and remote lock and wipe
