The Verdict

BullGuard Mobile Security is the best mobile security application because of its

parental controls and ability to support several devices.


The spread of viruses and online fraud such as identity theft are no longer

restricted to just computers. Smartphones are becoming prime targets for these

malicious bugs because of the large amount of personal data stored and the

simplicity of spreading these viruses from device to device. BullGuard Mobile

Security 10 is the best mobile security software to protect your device and the

information you have stored inside. This mobile security software is honored for its

ability to provide support to more than 80 percent of the cell phone market, such

as Androids, Windows Mobile, Symbian and BlackBerry operating systems. It

This mobile security software shields your phone’s data from viruses, Trojans and

worms. These viruses can spread from text or media messages, email, Bluetooth or

internet downloads. BullGuard Mobile Security 10 protects your phone from these

viruses using real-time detection. Real time immediately scans any files entering

your device, preventing any harmful viruses from infecting your phone.

This mobile security software program also offers firewall protection. This

protection sets up a barrier around ports on your device so malicious information

cannot enter your cell phone. Firewalls let you decide what content enters or does

not enter your phone and places a shield over your signal so you cannot be found

from public networks. Also, if you are tired of getting those annoying sales calls

or unwanted text messages, BullGuard Mobile Security 10 offers a spam filter that

allows you to block certain phone calls or text messages. However, both the firewall

protection and the spam filter are only available on phones using Symbian or Windows

Mobile operating systems.


One of the standout features available on the BullGuard Mobile Security 10 is its

superb parental controls. To use the parental control feature, you set up an online

account that allows you to monitor your child’s cell phone activity. This allows

you to control your child’s internet use and prevents him or her from viewing

pornography or other indecent material while using the internet on their cell

phone. Parental controls let you see whether pictures or blocked calls are being

monitored. It allows you to review pictures and messages being sent to and from the

advantage of with this mobile security software. You can log on to your online

account and lock or wipe the data on your device or use the GPS functions to find

the location of your phone. When you lock your phone, you place a password on

the device so nobody can browse or steal any data or information without entering

in the correct password.

Wiping the device using BullGuard Mobile Security 10 is ideal if you know the phone

has been stolen. You can clear all the information and data on your phone –

contacts, pictures, text messages, emails, etc. An extensive backup system is

available on the BullGuard Mobile Security 10, which allows you to save your

information onto your online account. This feature can be a personal lifesaver if

you lose a significant amount of data, because you will have all your information

readily available to you.

Ease of Use

Regular scans on your mobile device are crucial in finding malware that has entered

your cell phone. Aside from the real-time protection offered by this mobile security

software, BullGuard Mobile Security 10 allows you to scan your phone for viruses

whenever you would like. The software also features scheduled scans, meaning the

phone will scan itself on a regular basis. On several similar software applications,

scanning your device can be complex and often a long process, but this software

makes it simple and offers step-by-step guides in their online support

documentation help to simplify the process for you.
