Mobile Anti-virus If you have a smart phone, you probably store a lot of personal information on it. To protect this information from being stolen by smart-phone malware and viruses, which are becoming increasingly common, you need to get anti-virus for your phone. If you have an android an anti-virus recommended by PCWorld magazine is Lookout Mobile Security App. This free app scans your phone, makes a backup of your data that you can access from any web browser, and can locate your phone if it is lost or stolen. When it is first installed it scans all of your installed apps and then it scans every new app you install. Another good one is AVG Mobilization, this free antivirus scans for viruses, scans web content, emails, and text messages for spam and viruses, can locate a lost or stolen phone, and can remotely lock or wipe data from your phone. Some other android anti-viruses are Norton Mobile Security, AVG Antivirus Pro, and McAfee WaveSecure. If you have a iPhone or iPod touch you do not have as much to worry about because Apple restricts what apps go into the app store, but there is one remote-wipe service from Apple called Find My iPhone. This comes as part of Apples $99 dollar per-year MobileMe service.
