Avast for Android: new version in the ranks

It seems Avast Mobile Security is becoming more security for the most complete Android ... If one enjoys an antivirus and a firewall and an anti-theft, it also has many other options, as a tool for filtering calls and SMS, or a module that scans all URL when attempting to access it. In its next edition, the free tool is enriched by new features, including via the web page that allows the user to fully control the "lock" the application from a browser.

Through this page, it is possible to accurately locate the phone if lost or stolen, using the Wi-Fi, GPS or via the telephone network. The position of the device is recorded as a constant, which allows tracking all its movements. Recall that the anti-theft tool already built into Avast Mobile Security works independently from the main application. If it is possible to prevent its removal on a mobile root, it is also possible to change its name during installation, to keep it safe from prying eyes and those who would like to uninstall it after stealing the smartphone.

Finally, for holders of the premium version of the application, there will also be a way to take photo or record all the background noise to better detect the position of the device (always in case of theft). Applications can be controlled using a password or movement on the phone.
