Need some extra security for your Android device? Verizon and McAfee has your back with their security tool

Verizon has teamed up with McAfee to launch a security tool to help beef up your security system on your Android powered handset.  While the free version provides protection against spyware key-loggers and potentially harmful sites that are visited in the browser, $1.99 per month (or $1/month if you have Total Equipment Coverage already) gets you remote tracking, audible alarm sounding, locking, wiping your device and App Alert which flags apps that are accessing personal data.

While I feel most of these aren’t needed on an Android device, there are many that feel every precautionary step is worth it. If you’re one of those people, then head on over to the source link to find out more!

    The sad thing about all of this, is you can buy for less than their monthly fee, a fully functional AntiVirus/Protection Suite from AVG that you never have to pay for again. Right now it’s $10, sometimes you can catch them on sell though for $5. I’ve been using AVG for a long time now and have no issues with it once so ever, can’t beat the price either. With others it’s an annual fee ( Norton and McAfee ).
