With a major upgrade in functionality, G DATA Mobile Security Light presents itself in a whole new design that makes it considerably easier for you to use. Thus the best protection for your smartphone or tablet just got even better. All this without negatively impacting the battery life or performance of your device.

Our reliable malware scanner finds all malicious software, such as viruses, Trojans, or spyware, and removes it from your mobile device. With the notification assistant, you can easily analyze the permissions of all apps installed on your smartphone or tablet in an overview and filter out those with more assigned rights than they ought to have.

The AV-TEST independent test institute confirms the high protection level of our software: Since July of 2019, G DATA Mobile Security (Light) finds all malicious software without exception, making our software the best protection for your smartphone or tablet – at absolutely no cost to you.

30-day full version of G DATA Mobile Security or Android included!

With the download of G DATA Mobile Security Light, you get the full version with numerous extended premium features that you can test for 30 days at no charge and with no commitment. The full version includes the following functions:

Complete malware scanner with advanced scan
Protect your smartphone or tablet against malicious software of all kinds, such as viruses, Trojans, spyware, or stalkerware. Directly during the installation of a new app or for existing software, two scan engines ensure that all malware is detected, with no exceptions. Thanks to a cloud connection, your protection against viruses is always kept up to date.

Anti-theft protection
Your mobile device was lost or stolen? Thanks to anti-theft protection, you have numerous options for finding your smartphone or tablet remotely and protecting your data against unauthorized access. Use our G DATA ActionCenter to locate your device, reset it to the factory settings, lock it for further use, or trigger an alarm. If someone inserts another SIM card into your mobile device, it can be locked automatically if needed.

Web protection
Surf the Internet safely at all times with web protection. It promptly notifies you when you land on a phishing site. The cloud connection ensures that web protection recognizes the latest phishing sites.

App control

If you want to continue using the premium features, you can acquire a license for one year (€15,95) or one month (€1.99, automatic monthly renewal until canceled) with a convenient in-app purchase. When the trial phase automatically ends after 30 days, the Light version continues to provide full virus protection and shows you the permissions for all installed apps.

Unable to allow all files access. All files access setting does not list the app. Apps settings does not list the app. Restarting the tablet did not change this.

It's useable but it would be way better if the app lock was fixed so it actually keeps your app's locked all the time. Because as it currently is the app lock doesn't keep my settings locked properly.

Its simply great when it comes to blocking phishing sites. But it lacks important feature - realtime protection. I downloaded malicious files via Chrome and it detected them on manual scan. I was about to buy the Pro version but now hesitant. Can someone please confirm whether realtime detection of files is included in Pro version or not.
