Mobile Security for Android can check your mobile device for threats with or without a connection to the Internet. If you are connected to the Internet, the app can refer to an online list frequently updated by Trend Micro, so you always have the most up-to-date protection. In addition to the malware and virus scan, Mobile Security can detect fake apps that can potentially steal your private and sensitve information.
Mobile Security can check for malicious apps on your mobile device in three ways:
- When enabled, Real-time Scan checks for security threats in every new app that you install.
- When enabled, Pre-Installation Scan checks apps for security threats before you download them.
- Scan On Demand checks for security threats in all files and apps currently on your mobile device.
Note: Pre-Installation Scan feature is only available on mobile devices running Android v4.1 or later versions.
