We’ve always been told to “read the fine print before you sign on the dotted line,” but let’s be frank. In today’s digital world, all we want to do is play that new game, test that new app and hear that new song. The fine print seems like an unnecessary barrier to our fun. Most of us just simply hit the “I agree” button and move on with our lives. We say to ourselves, “what’s the point in reading the details, when I have to agree to the terms in order to get what I want anyway?” But guess what – according to the recently released Mobile Security: McAfee Consumer Trends Report, the average consumer has a one in six chance of downloading a risky app. Between you, me and four of our friends, that’s one of us who just gave away our credit card number to some cybercriminal.
There’s An App For That
You need to think twice before pressing “agree.” Don’t let apps fool you into a false sense of security; when you hit that button, you may be releasing your private information to third parties or, even worse, cybercriminals. At the same time, however, I completely understand that you don’t want to waste your time reading through the tiny fine print on your mobile screen either. Instead, let McAfee filter through those privacy guidelines and agreements for you, because just like everything else, there is an app for that.
The newly released version of McAfee® Mobile Security is equipped with the most robust privacy features available on the market, protecting you from the tricks hidden within the fine print of app agreements. It’s the perfect way to ensure that all the information stored within your smartphone or tablet including passwords, security numbers, names and addresses stays protected from unwanted eyes.
Not All Apps Created Equal
How do you know if McAfee Mobile Security is right for you? If you don’t want to take our word for it, check out the newly released results of an anti-virus security test conducted by independent testing company AV-Test, to see how McAfee Mobile Security stacks up against other security apps out there. McAfee Mobile Security scored a perfect 100% in the four different areas that were tested. If you’re interested in specifics, some of the areas included:
- Android Malware Detection Rate: Nothing got by! McAfee detected all samples and malware families in the test.
- · False Positives: Zero false positives were reported by the app.
- Power Consumption: The app is efficient and does not drain your battery.
- CPU Consumption: The app does not slow down the device during normal usage.
Basically, for those of us who don’t like and, just don’t care, to read the fine print, McAfee Mobile Security offers the best protection available, without draining the battery of your device so that you can take the perfect photo of your scrumptious lunch.
McAfee Mobile Security
All in all, privacy issues are endless and even more confusing. A single Android app could ask for and hide over 100 different types of permissions in one area of fine print. This is the digital age, and nobody’s got time for 100 different questions about one app.
When all you want to do is use that new app, play that new game, hear that new song – don’t let the fear of having your privacy invaded get in the way– let an app do that work for you. McAfee Mobile Security is an award winning technology trusted by more 3 million users, so join the “smart” smartphone users and download it today. With the new version we’re even offering a free two week trial and the option to sign up for a monthly subscription (yes, that’s for all those commitment phobes out there)!
