Browsing the Internet directly from your smartphone can be damaging for your device if you don’t install a powerful anti-virus app. That’s because the Internet is also the source of most viruses, malware and spyware. To protect your BlackBerry against all these damaging programs you should definitely install one of the apps listed below.
My first suggestion is Junos Pulse which comes packed with a complete set of security features which will protect your BlackBerry against malware and viruses. Your data will also be secured in case your smartphone is stolen or lost. This app is designed to scan your data constantly and in real time and is able to track and locate your stolen device by using GPS. It can be remotely set to trigger a loud alarm which will scare off the thief or will help you locate your lost phone.
Another antivirus app that you can install on your BlackBerry is NetQin Antivirus which uses a cloud security database to verify for known viruses and spyware that could have reached your BlackBerry. It’s designed to offer real time protection against all types of security threats and can detect anomalies during its data scans and then immediately block the malicious apps. With the help of this app, you will also have the possibility to find your lost or stolen smartphone. The app can locate your BlackBerry via SIM card base station or GPS. NetQin Antivirus is also able to lock your phone remotely in order to protect your stored data against thieves.
SMobile VirusGuard should also be on your list because it offers excellent antivirus protection. It’s able to block any malware and viruses from various entry points including SMS, MMS, Bluetooth, email and direct downloads. You can also set this app to complete full system scans in real time or at specific periods of time.
I can’t forget about Lookout Mobile Security which comes with a user friendly interface and many useful features. It protects your BlackBerry against malware, viruses and spyware and is able to locate your lost or stolen smartphone. By using this app you can even easily back up your data. You will also be able to remotely access backed up data via an online interface and locate your device in case it’s missing. This app can also offer you the possibility to remotely wipe the data stored on your smartphone.
BullGuard is like any other app described above being able to provide both virus protection and anti-theft features. This app can backup the information available on your BlackBerry and secures this data even if your device is stolen/lost. It also offers parental control which you won’t find on any other app
