Security Suite for Your Android Device

Google Play Protect is a security blanket laid out by Google to protect your invaluable Android device and save it from any likely mishap.

Round-the-Clock Security

Google Play Protect works continuously to keep your Android-powered mobile device’s apps and data safe. It scans your device constantly to ensure your mobile phone conforms to the latest mobile security standards. Google Play Protect sets into an action both when an app shows up on Google Play and when it’s running on your device. The safety net not just looks out for malware, but also helps locate your lost or misplaced Android. With the Find My Device feature, you can find your device by logging into your Gmail account or directly calling the phone from your browser. You can use this feature to remote-lock your device and put up a message on the phone’s lock screen, so that the individual currently in possession of your device would know how to return the device.

Slew of Features

The security package not just scans your apps and helps you find your device, but it also facilitates a safer browsing experience. There are also anti-theft measures in place. With Chrome’s Safe Browsing protection, you would be alerted every time you visit a site that could pose safety issues. The scanning feature comes inbuilt with your device, which means there is no manual installation or activation needed. The scan is invariably running in the background at all times. If required, you may also trigger a manual scan.

PROS

  • 24/7 security
  • Remote functionality

CONS

  • Nothing too new
  • iOS is still more secure
