With malware threats on mobile devices increasing at exponential rates, we determined it is time to expand our award-winning protection, PC Matic, to Android devices. This mobile security solution provides our real-time protection as well as on-demand scanning.
This security solution allows for peace of mind when installing apps. PC Matic for Android devices scans apps as they are installed for any signs of malicious behaviour.
The on-demand feature allows for optional scanning of every existing file, including system files, on your device for viruses. The software also includes a scheduled scan option, which the user is able to adjust according to their needs – daily, hourly, weekly or not at all. Users are also able to manage their device from the web by viewing stats and scan history from any computer. Lastly, PC Matic for Android devices allows the user to whitelist certain apps. If our solution detects an app that you use as being potentially harmful, you can whitelist that app so that it won’t be scanned in the future.
