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

With 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 offers the following features:

► Flawless antivirus scanner with Advanced Scan
Protect your smartphone or tablet against all types of malicious software, such as viruses, Trojans, or spyware. Directly during the installation of a new app or for existing software, two scan engines ensure that all malware is detected, with no exceptions.

► Prying eyes don’t stand a chance
In addition to traditional malware, our Mobile Security also stops stalkerware that can listen in on private conversations through your microphone, for instance. G DATA is the only security app that detected 100 percent of all tested stalkerware apps in the AV-Comparatives Test 2021.

► Web protection
Our web protection blocks dangerous phishing websites that try to grab sensitive data such as your passwords or bank details, meaning you can surf, bank, and shop online with peace of mind.

► Rapidly find your lost devices
You have misplaced your cell phone or it has been stolen? Locate it easily using our online platform, or trigger a beep to find it. If the battery runs out, the app sends its location so you can find your device even when it is turned off.

► Anti-theft protection
Protect your photos, videos, and messages from strangers. With G DATA Mobile Security for Android, you can remotely lock your lost device or wipe all of the data on it. Automatically lock your device in case of unauthorized SIM card change to prevent thieves from using your device.

► Protect apps with a PIN
Protect selected apps with a PIN. This will let you be able to put your phone down without worrying about someone making expensive in-app purchases or viewing your confidential data.

If you want to continue using the premium features, you can acquire a license for one year or one month with a convenient in-app purchase. When the trial phase automatically ends after 30 days, the Light version continues to provide full antivirus protection and shows you the permissions for all installed apps.

Important: This app requires the device administrator for anti-theft protection and the accessibility features for web protection.

Seems nice and light, but is missing some options like after how many minutes the app lock should lock an app, also lost protection is too tightly integrated to the app protection, meaning the screen is flickering heavily whenever I receive a phone call or the alarm is triggered and it is very hard to perform action other than cold reboot of the phone...

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.

Certain updates of this app cause it to stop being active in the background until the user opens it up and goes through the intro screens again.It could be months before you discover this has happened and in the meanwhile you device is not being protected and new app installs not scanned. Totally unacceptable practice for a security app.
