    McAfee All Access 2012 on Android Phone?


      I have McAfee All Access 2012.  I have not yet installed it on my Android phone, is there a real need to do this?

          No, it's up to you what protection you decide upon.


          from the All Access page, on an Android phone it has the following features:


          • Complete Anti-virus, Anti-spyware, and Anti-phishing—Scan and clean malicious code from inbound emails, outbound emails, text messages, attachments, and files.
          • Safe Searching and Shopping—Protection against web threats by blocking risky links within SMS, email and social networking sites.  Also safeguards against potential phishing sites, browser exploits and malicious QR codes.
          • Mobile Lock—Prevent misuse of your phone and personal data by remotely locking all data, including the data on your memory (SIM) card, and displaying a "contact me" message on the device.
          • Remotely Wipe Data—Protect your privacy by remotely deleting the data on your phone and removable memory card. You can also backup data before a remote wipe so nothing is lost.
          • Backup and Restore Data—Preserve irreplaceable personal information on demand, on a schedule, or before you wipe your missing smartphone, then restore your information to your new device.
          • Locate and Track—Recover your smartphone if it is lost or stolen. View its location on a map, send an SMS to prompt its return, and use a remote alarm to make it "scream".
          • Content Filtering—Let your children safely explore the Internet on Android smartphones. Set filters to prevent exposure to inappropriate content and selectively permit or block specific sites.
          • Uninstall Protection—Keep a thief—or another user—from bypassing your McAfee mobile protection.
