TalkTalk has launched a new free security and anti-virus app for users of its Android-powered smartphones.
Available from the Google Play store, the MobileSafe app offers anti-virus, safe browsing, anti-theft, parental controls and call and text message.
The anti-theft tool enables customers to locate, lock and wipe their smartphone, protecting sensitive information.
Users can tailer the app, which is powered by security firm F Secure, to their needs, selecting only the services they require.
“It is essential for us to give our customers security solutions that best meet their family needs. We’re already the leading provider for internet safety with our award-winning HomeSafe and with MobileSafe™ we’ve taken this one step further to help keep our customers’ phones safe wherever they are,” explained Dan Meader, Director of Mobile at TalkTalk.
“From research we have discovered that 60% of parents are worried about the content their children can access via their mobile, MobileSafe™ incorporates parent filtering allowing them to block content they feel is harmful or inappropriate.”
