It is nearly impossible to imagine living without mobile phones and tablets since they have become so ingrained in our culture. Office and field personnel may continue working while on the go without being tethered to their desks, thanks to the portability of these gadgets. However, this portability has created security issues, as smartphones and tablets can be easily misplaced, lost, or stolen.

Lookout Security & Antivirus

As more people start using smartphones/tablets and a wider range of security issues surrounding these devices emerge, many leading security solution development companies, such as Norton and AVG, started introducing their security apps. Though they are the key player in the market, the application Lookout Security & Antivirus is currently the leading player in this industry. The company entered the Android security field relatively early, and since then, it has emerged as the market leader. This app allows you to check your phone for malicious scripts, schedule scans of applications and files stored on your Smartphone, activate an alarm, backup your data, and track your phone through the Lookout website. The free version is sufficient for most users and a paid version is also available for a fixed monthly/annual fee. Avast, TrustGo, and other security solution development firms provide similar solutions.

Gadget Trax Mobile Security

This application is designed for worst-case scenarios, such as the loss/theft of a smartphone or tablet which contains business-critical personal data. For starters, Gadget Trax allows you to track the mobile device's location using the in-built GPS locator. Additional features of this software, free to try for a limited period, will enable you to back up data stored on portable devices to a safe location or initiate a remote wipe of the data stored on the device. Related Mobile Security Apps include Seek Droid, which provides similar functionality to GPS-based mapping of lost or stolen devices.


Business-critical data is one of many pieces of information that users store on their smartphones and tablets. Many of us hold other important details such as social security numbers, credit card details, banking account information, etc. A wallet is a leading security solution for mobile phones, allowing users to store passwords safely, bank account details, and credit card information on Android phones/tablets. Additional functionality in this free application includes maintaining records of different small information bits such as prescription details, car insurance details, combination lock codes, etc.

mSecure Password Manager

Corporate and personal data security requirements require multiple passwords to log on to systems, complete transactions, make edits, etc. Keeping track of all these passwords, which should not be repeated, are often system generated and requires a lot of effort to recall. To make things easier, the mSecure Password Manager application was introduced. This mobile app allows you to create and maintain a secure database of all your password and related log-in details. Such information can be accessed and modified at the user's convenience, provided the correct security code is provided. Additional information that can be included in the encrypted database of this application comprises clothes sizes, membership/subscription information, banking details, frequent flier codes, etc. mSecure utilizes industry-leading encryption techniques to ensure maximum security of all your data, even if the Android phone/tablet is stolen.
