Because smartphones - and the information they store - can be very valuable, they're a target for thieves. In addition, because smartphones are compact and lightweight, they can be easy to lose or misplace. That's why Kaspersky Mobile Security includes a wide range of features to help you protect your data if your phone goes missing¡ including the ability to find your phone's location - even if the SIM card is replaced.
- Device Lock
By sending an SMS to your missing phone, you can remotely block it - so no one can access your private information. You can also create your own custom message that will be displayed on your blocked phone's screen - to help encourage the return of your lost device.
- New! Mugshot
The new 'Mugshot' feature helps to identify unauthorised users of your phone - by secretly photographing them. It can take a series of photographs of whoever is using your phone¡ and then send the photos directly to your personal Anti-Theft Web Management account.
- Data Wipe
If you're not sure whether you're going to be able to recover your missing phone, you can select from options that can remotely wipe your personal data from your smartphone.
- Wipe personal information - deletes call history, SMSs, contacts and calendar events
- Wipe SD Card - deletes all information stored on the SD card inside your phone
- Device reset - deletes all information and returns your phone to its factory settings
The newly improved 'Find' function provides the approximate location of your phone - using GPS, GSM and Wi-Fi connections and a Google Map link that shows your phone's location.
- SIM Watch
If your missing phone's SIM card is replaced, SIM Watch will report the new phone number to you - and enable you to block your phone, wipe data from it or find your phone's location.
- Device Admin
This new feature helps to ensure that third-party apps or other users cannot uninstall the Kaspersky Mobile Security application.
- New! Anti-Theft Web Management
When your phone goes missing, there's no time to waste and you need to activate and control the anti-theft features that can protect your information and help to locate your phone. Kaspersky Lab's new Anti-Theft Web Management portal is your web-based control centre - providing an easy-to-use, convenient way to interact with your phone remotely.
- Activate all anti-theft commands - including Device Lock, Mugshot, Data Wipe, Locate and SIM Watch
- Review logs of recent activities - including commands activated, plus the status of anti-theft commands and their results
Smartphones are being used to access the Internet more regularly - and that can introduce security risks. When you're online using your smartphone, Kaspersky Mobile Security helps to safeguard your identity by blocking dangerous and fraudulent links - including phishing and malicious websites that are designed to steal personal information or compromise the security of shopping or banking transactions.
Call & SMS Filtering
Call & SMS Filtering helps you to avoid unwanted calls and texts - by letting you:
- Manually or automatically add numbers to your own Whitelist or Blacklist
- Automatically block calls & SMS texts from hidden and non-numeric numbers
- Select a filtering profile - 'only SMSs' or 'only calls' or 'SMSs & calls'
Privacy Protection makes it easy for you to control what others see - and cannot see - when they pick up your phone. It's easy to hide your private mobile communications from others - and you can activate the Privacy Protection mode manually, automatically or remotely.
Easy to Set Up Protection
Kaspersky Mobile Security includes an updated Installation Wizard that guides you through every stage of the installation process - to simplify installation and set-up.
