    Hi malware1, first of all, i admire your work :)

    We will of course let users translate it, we just gave it an early start with our mother tongues.

    I just got the newest version, but it seemed to crash when tried to do a full scan.

    This is the message, I get when I try to run a full scan:

    "Unfortunately, Zemana Antivirus has stopped ." Report or OK, are the two options to click on, then.

    I did click on report, but I don't know if it went through....I did get something on the smartphone, that my message was sent. So, you may have got something.

    Hi guys,

    New version is on Google Play.

    @siketa, @Tarnak, crash should be gone with this update. I'd appreciate if you could verify that.

    Thank you.

    Why do you need a changelog for every version?

    Oh ok, I understand. :)

    I can only get the new version to update via google play on my desktop, and not through my smartphone. Confirmed that I got the update about four minutes ago.

    P.S. Perhaps, it is because I have two different google accounts for this smartphone.

    Just confirmed that I can run the full scan. It only scanned had 32 files scanned. I guess because it is a new phone, and I don't download much.

    @siketa, great thank you :)

    For now, it is. But we are implementing on access scan, in android on access means just after an app installed.

    Seems odd, but it's still more than fast scan right?

    Thank you.

    I also can not find this app in Google Play so the installation was made through beta forum link you have sent us.

    We are currently in private beta, you cannot see it in search results and even the link seems broken unless you logged in with your android account's email.

    Ah okay thank you very much for your info. Why I need a Changelog is it too see what is improved or fixed and added for me

    Here are another 3 questions for you

    1. Can I use Zemana Mobile Security on tablets
    2. How often update you the Virus Database
    3. Any Infos about a Cloud scan function/feature for Zemana Mobile Security

    With best Regards

    Hi Mops21,

    Yes i am making changelog a habit, thank you.

    1. Yes but it looks really ugly because it only supports portrait layout for now, we'll implement landscape layouts soon.
    2. It's once a day at the moment, we'll publish updates more frequently.
    3. There is no cloud scan feature because mobile bandwidth is still a precious resource.

    Let me hereby clarify one thing, we are not using other AV's or their detections in any sense with mobile security. We process at least 50k file in a day, this process consists of clustering samples, sandboxing a few samples from each cluster (we call our sandboxes pandora), analyzing pandora results to decide if it's a malware or not, along with the many other features, and finally producing generic signatures.

    Our AntiMalware product heavily uses pandora system and our own signatures, but mobile security completely rely on it. It's doing pretty good in terms of detection and fp rates. We will also attend the next AV-Test in january and publish the results here, wish us luck :)

    As a small demonstration, let me share two of our signatures, one is auto-generated and the other one is written by us.

    Thank you.
