Verizon has just launched a mobile security service powered by McAfee with a whole bunch of useful security tools. The free version provides protection against spyware keyloggers, and potentially harmful sites that are visited in the native Android browser. For $1.99/month (or $1/month if you have Total Equipment Coverage already) you gets you remote tracking, audible alarm sounding, locking, and wiping, along with App Alert, which flags apps that are accessing personal data.
While I'm not personally concerned about viruses in the traditional PC sense, there's plenty of malware out there that's worth protecting against in some form or another. How do you guys make sure your personal data is safe from malicious apps? Is it worth paying a monthly fee for protection?
Head on over to Verizon for more information or to sign up for Verizon Mobile Security.
