Computer security is important but did you know that you should also protect your phone or tablet. We all know and trust AVG with our computers. With over 100 million downloads AVG helps protect against viruses, spyware, malware and scamware. It comes with added bonuses! You can also track your phone, secure private apps, protect messages, photos and more. It also helps with battery usage and storage. So no more having to erase your photos to download an app.
So how does AVG help protect your phone from theft? Or help you find it if its lost? Well with the app installed in your phone or tablet can help find your phone through Google Maps. You can also lock your screen and set a lock screen message that helps you find it and warn others that may find it. They can't put it on silent because if you know it is near you will hear it, loud. How cool is that. And what I really like the most is that you can lock your phone when a new sim card is installed. AVG gives you a 30 day Trial to all the PRO features.
And if you are unable to get your phone back. You are able to erase all of your contacts, photos, text messages, and other important information by restoring the sim card to factory setting. Have you ever taken pictures of important documents like your social security card, or ID. I was once a victim of identity theft and if I were to loose important information like that I would freak out. The process to getting your life back is long, tedious and devastating. I don't know who or why my social security was used and taken but it affected my life drastically. I could not get a bank account, I could not ask for student loans, I could not open credit anywhere. Worst of all the long lines, long time in the phone and having to carry a letter claiming I was who I am from the social security. So I now believe that it is better safe than sorry and to take as many precautions when it comes to internet and identity security. Do yourself the favor with an easy step as downloading the Free AVG App. Learn more about it on AVG.com.
