basic program that protects your phone from
destructive security threats, Webroot may have the answer.
You never know when a downloaded app contains a virus or if a webpage is infected
with malicious threats. Webroot

protection, which is designed to find the malware before it can do any
your phone. It also features secure web browsing so you can browse the internet
on your phone without
worrying about each webpage you access. Even though the
antivirus protection on this device works well, we were disappointed
to see this
mobile security device does not offer any firewall protection.
the standout features available on this mobile security application is the
protection it offers if your phone is lost
or stolen. You can use the
device-locate tool to find the location of the phone on a map. You can also use
device-scream tool, which creates an alert sound. So whether your phone is
on silent or not, the alert will sound, helping
you to find your phone. While your
phone is lost, you can lock the device, which denies access to all contents of the
phone. The only way to access information on the smartphone is to enter the
correct password. In addition, you can

parental controls available on the application. Parents cannot access the
history or set customized protection on the smartphone.
One of the highlights of Webroot is the excellent customer service they provide.
You can contact technical support
through email, telephone and online chat. They
also offer a very detailed and extensive user forum so you can receive
support and advice from other Webroot users. In addition, there is a FAQs section
available on the Webroot

have regarding the software.
Webroot Secure Anywhere Mobile Premier is a basic mobile security application.

stolen and an app scanner. If you are just looking for an application that will
provide basic protection
