Tablet PCs, such as Apple’s iPad, are becoming more and more popular. With that popularity come hackers who will want to exploit these devices, especially with new users who may not know how to protect the information on them. Here are some programs that you’ll want to look into to protect your tablet PC as well as your smartphone.
There is a new version of AVG that is especially created for products that are running the Android operating system. Whether you have the Motorola Android phone or the new HP Slate tablet PC, you can protect your files. This product scans your device in real time with the purpose of protecting it against viruses, malware, and spyware. Two great features that make this program exceptional are the locating devices. One allows you to find the phone if it’s stolen while the other can force it to ring even if it’s on silent so you can find it when you know it’s close by.
When you have a portable device that relies on batteries, it’s important for the batteries to last as long as possible. This is especially important with programs that run constantly, such as antivirus software. NetQin promises not only to protect Android devices from malware, viruses, and spyware, but it also promises not to drain power quickly. Two nice features with this application are the ability to locate the device if lost or stolen and being able to remotely wipe any data found on the phone.
Either of these programs would be great for protecting your phone and there are free versions available
