☆ WHY WAVESECURE? ☆
For many of us, our mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets do more than just entertain us with games such as Angry Birds and Paper Toss. We get on Facebook and Twitter for our social interaction. We communicate over Skype or eBuddy. We make payments through PayPal and even do our mobile banking.
We keep many of the important details of our lives on our mobile devices, yet we don’t always think about the importance of mobile security. But if our devices are lost or stolen, we need to back up and secure our personal data and media like photos and videos.

This is a great app. I've tried the rest and this is the best. Malware scanner not needed as Google detect and remove any viruses found in market.

Been in since early beta & support was amazing before McAfee took over. Website navigation, speed, and (most important) up-time is stuck in the 90's.

Seems good but it's missing the ability to make your phone ring by sending an sms message, even if your phone is on silent. Like where's my droid can.

@iPaulPro: The free lifetime subscription is tied to your mobile number... I still have mine.

In order to transfer the lifetime subscription you have to download trial version and register with your old account then it will work.

Note for the newbies: You have to revoke "Device Administrator" privileges first to uninstall this program. This is normal for any app with admin.
