From the folks who brought you Vipre Antivirus for Windows, Vipre Mobile for Android is now available for a public beta testing. Along with the standard functions you would expect from a security application, Vipre offers a bit of parental controls and some unique methods to block messages containing phrases or words deemed undesirable. Here's how they describe the features in a weekly newsletter sent out to current users of their PC software:
I'm sure many parents out there will be interested in a bit more control over what their kids are doing with an Android smartphone, and it looks like Vipre is trying to fill that need. As mentioned, the application is currently in an open beta, so like all other things beta there may be bugs. If you're feeling brave and want to check it out, hit the source link for more details and a download (Android 2.2 or higher).
