Cloud-enabled antivirus protection
In addition to traditional signature-based technologies, cloud security helps to maximise protection of your device – both online and offline. Suspicious files are checked – not only against known malware signatures, but also in the cloud. This provides immediate, real-time protection against new and emerging threats.
Call & SMS Filter
Manage your calls & SMSs
Are trivial calls or messages distracting you at inopportune moments? Kaspersky Security for Android lets you choose which contacts you want to accept calls and messages from. Call & SMS Filter can run in whitelist mode – whereby it only accepts calls and messages from specified contacts – or in blacklist mode, whereby it accepts calls and messages from all numbers except those on the blacklist. One-click operation means that managing your lists has never been easier.
Maintain privacy for your private contacts
In ‘Privacy Protection’ mode, you have exclusive control over which of your contacts and phone numbers you want to keep ‘private’. At the touch of a button, you can easily hide everything related to a particular contact – including their phonebook entries, SMSs and call logs. Other people will remain completely unaware that your phone has a ‘Privacy Protection’ mode and they’ll not know that they can only see the things that you want them to see.
- Supports both phonebook and SIM contacts
- Password protected
- You can switch to ‘Privacy Protection’ mode in a number of ways:
- automatically after a defined period of time
- remotely by sending a special text message to your phone
Remotely lock your missing device – to secure your personal information
All files or sensitive information stored on your Android device can be kept safe from prying eyes. A dedicated web portal (for tablets) or a predefined SMS command (for smartphones) can block your device – so that no one can access its contents.
Remotely wipe sensitive information on your missing device
If you’re not sure that you’ll be able to find your missing device, you can remotely delete all of the information that’s stored on it. By sending the appropriate command – via your personal web portal (for tablets) or SMS (for smartphones) – you can ensure your sensitive information stays private.
Identify unauthorised users of your tablet – by secretly taking their picture
If you are looking for evidence that your Android tablet or smartphone is being used by a thief or an unauthorised user, Kaspersky Security for Android includes a ‘mugshot’ feature that secretly takes a series of pictures and sends them directly to your personal web portal.
Locate your missing device if it’s lost or stolen
There’s no reason to panic if you can’t find your valuable Android device. With Kaspersky Security for Android, you can receive a Google Maps link that gives the current location of your device. Once you know the whereabouts of your device, it should help you to determine whether it was lost or stolen – so you can take appropriate action.
Find out if a thief replaces the SIM in your phone
If your smartphone’s SIM card is replaced, SIM Watch immediately blocks the device and sends you a message with the phone’s new number – so you can use the Block, Wipe and GPS Find functions.
Be sure your device is always protected
The Device Admin feature can control access to your device and also protect against the unauthorised uninstallation of Kaspersky Security for Android. Without the secret code, other users and third-party applications cannot access Kaspersky Security for Android on your device.
Be safe when browsing websites with your tablet
Whenever you surf using the browser, Kaspersky Security for Android will detect and block dangerous links – including fraudulent ‘phishing’ websites that are designed to steal your identity and your money.
Manage your tablet – even if it’s lost or stolen
If your Android tablet is lost or stolen, your personal web-based control centre provides a convenient way to interact remotely with your tablet. Designed for ease-of-use, the Web Management portal allows you to:
- Activate the anti-theft commands: Block, Wipe, Find and Mugshot
- Review logs of recent activities – such as activated commands – and view the status of anti-theft commands and the results they return
