PC Matic Expands to Android Protection – Available Now on Google Play

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.

    • Mike, the paid version of PC Matic covers phones and computers together so it is $50 per year for 5 devices. Unfortunately we don’t currently have a plan for 1 device.

  1. I just found out about this for Android but I cannot login to my account. I tried password reset as well but no luck??

    • John, please reach out to our support team for assistance with your account. You can reach them 7 days a week at pcmatic.com/help.

  2. What if I upgrade my phone? Can I transfer the existing license or does that count as a new instance toward the 5 maximum?

  3. Last month I purchased PC Matic for my PC so I should have 4 more licenses available. If I go the the Google Play Store and download the android app will I get charged for it or is it cost free?

    • You will not be charged, it will just go towards one of your four existing available devices. Therefore, you will just need to go to Google Play, install and then login with your email and password you have associated with your PC Matic account. Great question!

  4. We had pcmatic before but went back to Norton because I had such a hard time getting any tech support from you. Am currently looking to find protection for two Android Motorola phones. Not very tech savvy, need plain instructions. What do you offer for our phones?

    • Elisabeth, I’m sorry that you were not satisfied with our support offerings. Our customer support team can be reached 7 days a week at pcmatic.com/help. In terms of Android protection, we do offer a smartphone application that you can download from the Google Play store. Each Android phone you log in on will count as 1 license on your 5 license plan which costs $50.

    • Are your tablets using an Android operating system? Our product is compatible with Windows Vista, XP, 7, 8, 10 and Android. If you are using one of those as an OS, and still aren’t seeing the icon, please reach out to our support team at http://www.pcmatic.com/help to assist in determining the issue. Thank you.
