The group matches for the World Cup 2010 event almost at the end. Next will be the play off and that’s where the real excitement of World Cup begins. During this period, those of you that are in South Africa watching and having fun with the World Cup event for the entire month, here’s a FREE security protection for your Smartphone from Kaspersky Mobile Security. You may download Kaspersky Mobile Security 9 and get your FREE supporter’s code for FREE.

    It’s not just a simple mobile antivirus program. Kaspersky Mobile Security helps to protect and recover your Smartphone if it’s stolen. One of the functions is remotely block your phone if it is stolen or lost. All you have to do is just send a SMS to your phone and the software will block your device to stop others from accessing the content. You can even locate your Smartphone using GPS Find. Finally if the thief tries to replace the SIM card within, a function call SIM Watch will immediately block the device and send you and email with the new number. Once you have the new phone number, it will be easy for you to track down the phone.

    I think it’s very important to have an antivirus program install in a Smartphone. In fact antivirus program is very much needed for a Smartphone then a notebook. Other than worry about your Smartphone stolen and having programs that can help you recover it, you should be worry about the potential of having the content of your Smartphone stolen. The reason is that information can be easily stolen when it is using WIFI connection without setting any password. In other words if you’re connecting online using WIFI without any password protection, all the activities and information that you carry out are expose. Others can easily obtain all the information by using a simple hacking program. That includes your account number, user login id, password that you use to access your bank account online. Sounds dangerous? Yes, it is. Here are a few simple actions that you can do to prevent your information stolen online with your Smartphone.

  • Disable all your wireless connection when not in use. That includes WIFI and Bluetooth.
  • Try not to use any WIFI connection without any password protection. Still if you have to use it, don’t perform any activities involve banking, credit card, money and other important information. Make sure there’s nothing important in your Smartphone too.
  • Always update your Smartphone application, browsers and security programs.

P/S: That goes the same when accessing internet using your notebook WIFI.
