Not personally, but I read an analysis of Xylitol (Global Moderator KMI).
I am, somebody's gotta test it I guess, so far has led me to uninstall one app as it was doing more than I thought. I'll post back here after a few days to report my opinion on this one.
Re: What is your security setup these days for Android?
Because iOS has ONE source for apps.
While Android users tend to source from a variety of places. Amazon, APK download sites, and roughly 200-300 alternative app stores. Part of the flexibility of Android is the fact you aren't tied to Apples store without rooting, and potentially damaging your device. That's a huge difference for personal power, but also a greater security risk.
Can someone grab the APK for this and PM me a fireshare link? I don't use Googleplay, and none of my APK download sites have this for some reason.
It's also at the Amazon store, if you don't mind having an Amazon account.
Contains adware Revmob.
Detected by Avira,Dr Web,F-Prot,VIPRE.
It would be interesting to see Android AV not present in VT.
Is there anyone who can do it?
Sorry my bad English.
Has anyone tried using MBAM on-demand only?
I've just read good things about AVLPro by Antiy and I'm giving it a whirl.
I was using MBAM. Instead of uninstalling it I've just turned off real-time.
I'll keep an eye out for battery drain and any slowdowns.
Anyone else tried this? I've seen in another thread that someone was running two apps real-time.
Would Android threats merit a second opinion scanner?
I'm using ESET Mobile Security full licensed from a giveaway,but when it will expire i'll gladly use the free version,i don't mind to manually update it.(a very small cost for a very good security program).
Now I'm quite satisfied with Clean Master.
Now, Kingsoft detects the Android mobile banking Trojan.
Not at the time of discovery.
I'm trying Bitdefender since I grabbed a free 1 yr key, do you guys think it will confilct with CM Security or should I remove it?
Apart from enabled encryption, no realtime antivirus or on-demand scanners
Generalized Security Setup:
install and remove apps as needed
disabled unnecessary services
disabled radios unless
enabled stock encryption
enabled browser data compression
no on-demand/real-time scanners
keepass for android: contacts, etc.
Grey Shirt's No Root Firewall.
Google Voice for call control.
Clean Master before the latest update added a widget (permissions).
I don't send/receive personal/sensitive information that isn't already public information. I've asked contacts to do the same and to speak with me directly either at school, work, or other.
I don't know if they will conflict, but personally I'd only run one AV with real time protection.
I haven't noticed any conflicts, I like BDM so far it seems to run pretty light 3.37 mb currently
I meant to say only one AV with real time protection.
I don't think there is any need to have more than one, because the risk of getting infected if you stick to downloading apps from the Play Store is very minimal. Also a second one could impact system performance when you install apps due to them both scanning the app.
Sure that makes sense, I just like testing things lol I may install the other BDM freebies on my kids phones
Yes, me too which is why I've tried 10s of different Android AVs.
New ver Clean Master 5.x.
a) Scan only Cloud SD
b) Safe Browsing (phishing + malware)
I am loving the new CM Secure Browser
Clean Master Safe Browsing in action:
Samsung Galaxy Ace
Boat Browser Mini (ESET antiphishing ON)
ESET Mobile Security Premium (real time OFF/ON).
Clean Master (KingSoft) Real Time off - Safe Browsing on
I hate that Google blocked my Google Checkout (Wallet) account. There are apps that i want to purchase but i cant. (Including security ones, luckily Avast! added an alternate method to purchase it)
