Claiming ‘iron-clad security’ for smart wearables with its new Mobile Security & Antivirus, Bitdefender says its solution introduces the WearON feature that uses Android Wear watches to make a phone scream from afar, even if it is left on silent, to help find the phone.
Bitdefender says WearON will also alert the smart watch owner with an “unmistakable vibration” when they stray dangerously far from their phone.
According to Bitdefender, by simply updating the new Mobile Security & Antivirus software to incorporate the new WearON feature, Android Wear watch owners can “bolster their defenses against theft and loss, adding an extra layer of security to ensure complete protection while on the go.”
Cosoi says the new mobile security and antivirus solution also protects user privacy with App Lock, a recently launched feature that lets device owners block access to sensitive data by protecting certain apps with a PIN code.
“The new features add to an array of defensive tools including on-install scanning, Anti-Theft that allows users to control a lost or stolen phone through SMS commands, a Privacy Advisor that keeps tabs on installed apps to protect against privacy invasion, and always-updated cloud-based antivirus services based on the world’s most effective line of antivirus software.”
