Wednesday, November 20th, 2013 - AVG Technologies AU

AVG Technologies  today announced its latest version of AVG AntiVirus PRO for Android™ Tablets. Version 3.4.1, which includes new Camera Trap and SIM Lock features, is now available to download. AVG is also offering these new features to AVG AntiVirus FREE for Android™ Tablet users as part of a 14-day trial period, so they too can experience the benefits of additional protection.

Designed to offer optimum privacy, performance and protection for tablet devices combined with a real ease of use, AVG AntiVirus PRO for Android™ Tablets now includes the following new Anti-Theft features:

  • If your tablet has been lost and you have activated our existing Anti-Theft remote lock service,  Camera Trap will take a secret photo of anyone trying to override the lock who enters your password incorrectly three times in a row. This photo will then be emailed to the address you’ve registered with the Anti-Theft service, so you can see exactly who’s trying to break into your phone.

 

  • Designed for tablets with a SIM card, SIM Lock is able to lock your tablet in the event that the SIM card is replaced.

Michael McKinnon, Security Advisor at AVG Technologies AU, said: “Tablets are expected to be one of the hottest gifts this Christmas, with new releases available from Google, Apple and Microsoft to name but a few. Aside from their monetary value, these devices are already an essential part of many people’s daily lives and hold information of great personal and professional significance. With these advanced Anti-Theft features we aim to provide our tablet customers with the peace of mind that what they hold dearest will be protected.”

In addition to these new Anti-Theft features, AVG AntiVirus PRO for Android Tablets also includes the privacy-focused features App Backup, which saves apps to the device’s SD card to be restored whenever necessary, and App Locker, which can lock apps to protect your privacy and safety.
