McAfee Mobile Security 4.5 for Android is here!

Intel Security just launched the latest version of our award-winning Android app–McAfee Mobile Security (MMS). MMS has evolved beyond providing AV protection to provide performance boosting and Android Wear features. We are proud to arm our users with these new powerful tools for optimized device performance to aid in users’ eternal struggle to gain longer battery life, more power, speed, and storage on their Android smartphones and tablets.

As the number and variety of devices in our lives increases, so does the number of threats and potential risks to our privacy. By using wearable devices we gain convenience and flexibility but open ourselves to a variety of threats, such as identity theft, insurance fraud, stalking, and many others. To address this emerging vulnerability, MMS has introduced Android Wear watch support, enabling users to stay safe and productive even when they are on the go. You can prevent loss, stay on top of mobile threats and boost your mobile device performance–all done straight from your smart watch.
