Having an antivirus on a smartphone isn't very useful if we don't pay much attention to the places we visit or we connect to any old public WiFi network. But, as you know, not everyone is so cautious to it's always interesting to download an antivirus, just as we'd do on our PC, and this GO Security, AntiVirus AppLock is a perfect example that goes way beyond the protection against malware.
In any case, we have to point out that this software comes along with an engine capable of detecting over a million viruses and different types of malicious software. The protection is carried out in real and guarantees a minimum battery consumption.
It also protects your privacy
As we said above, this app doesn't only protect you against malware but is also designed to protect your privacy. It does so by blocking the access to applications by means of a password pattern, so if you share your smartphone or tablet and you don't want the other person to see your pics, read your emails or access your WhatsApp conversations or chats on other instant messaging applications, here's a shield to protect yourself.
This application can be downloaded for free and also comes along with functions to improve the device's performance, such as junk file cleaner and a RAM memory releaser, shutting down apps that run in the background.
All-in-one: security and privacy in a single application.
These are the main functions and features that you'll find once you download the APK of GO Security to your phone:
- Virus detection.
- Real-time protection in the background.
- Application blocker so that nobody can access them if you leave your device unlocked.
- Android accelerator with junk cleaner and RAM memory.
- Privacy protector.
But is it reliable? Taking into account most of the opinions, we could say that it is. However, many of them point out the same major drawback: its adverts. The latter pop up all of a sudden and that's not what we expect from an app that's meant to protect the privacy and security of our smartphone... So if you're looking for something more trustworthy, you should try out other alternatives such as the antiviruses developed by AVG, Avira or Kaspersky.
