If you have a business like many of our readers, mobile devices are our lifeline. Our team is always on the go so it's important that we all keep our devices secure. Here are some of the best mobile security apps we use and recommend. The apps listed may or may not be available for all devices.
Here's our list of recommended mobile security apps:
Kaspersky is the one app many of our team members use both at home and on the go. You can protect multiple devices in real time.
The company says, “Whether you connect with a PC, Mac, Android tablet or smartphone, our advanced real-time technology gives you an easy, worry-free experience that moves as fast as the web can take you.”
Of course there are a variety of other companies that do similar things like Avast, AVG, Norton antivirus and more. Find the one that best suits you.
LastPass remembers all your passwords and with their premium version you get unlimited access to your vault on all mobile devices plus advanced security features. Having strong passwords is vital to your business so why not make them very strong AND only have to remember one main password from now on. This password management system is top on our list!
Lookout Security protects both smart phones and tablets plus secures company data and devices. They have both personal and enterprise options. You can choose a free personal option or pay just $3 for premium for a personal account.
Lookout seems to do a lot of what Kaspersky does. I like the fact that if you lose your phone you can locate it on a map from any web browser. This looks like one of the best apps to lock your device.
Private Internet Access can protect your mobile device while you're on the go. If you use public WiFi, you'll want this service and app to secure and protect yourself from hackers. Here's our VPN review. Investing in a VPN account is a no brainer to help protect your business whenever you are working outside of your secure home network.
I came across some interesting mobile security apps that can lock your devices. I like the fact that you can protect your privacy and lock apps to hide pictures, videos, texts and more. Just go to the Google Play or Apple app stores to search for them.
Lastly, although not a security app, we recommend the WordPress mobile app. You can post any time you are on the go, check your stats and keep your community engaged. Just be sure to have a secure password. And use LastPass premium to log in easily via mobile.
So tell us, what are some of your top mobile security apps that you can't live without?
