Kaspersky Total Security For Android Review _HOT_


Since my start in 2008, I've covered a wide variety of topics from space missions to fax service reviews. At PCMag, much of my work has been focused on security and privacy services, as well as a video game or two. I also write the occasional security columns, focused on making information security practical for normal people. I helped organize the Ziff Davis Creators Guild union and currently serve as its Unit Chair.




Kaspersky Total Security for Android Review



Again, all these features of Kaspersky Internet Security are also present in Total Security. Note that basic security protection for macOS and Android devices is precisely the same in the two suites, but Total Security offers additional utilities for those two platforms, and for iOS. For a deeper dive into those shared features, read my review of the entry-level suite.


Nikki is a commissioned editor for Future Plc covering internet security including antivirus and VPN. With over 18 years of research and writing experience, and 11 years of testing and reviewing internet security solutions, Nikki knows how to dive deep to get the information consumers need to make better buying decisions. She is also a mom to 10 children, and personally uses many of the products she reviews to ensure the safety of her own family.

I've read a lot of reports, articles and security blogs, and watch congressional hearings on cybersecurity. I've also spoken with other experts in the internet security industry, including Paul Wagenseil, who has met Eugene Kaspersky, and reviews antivirus solutions for our partner Tom's Guide. While there have been many stories and claims that both support and disprove these allegations, the U.S. government hasn't officially confirmed them, and "sources" prefer to remain anonymous. Further, no sanctions were ever imposed on Kaspersky.


Kaspersky Lab has been a highly rated security company for more than two decades. It has received good marks from professional reviewers for its intuitive antivirus products and strong malware detection, which get an assist from machine learning. Kaspersky sells its software in more than 200 countries and has 35 offices in 31 countries. It employs a team of 4,000 security specialists.


So here we are. The most awkward antivirus review ever. I mean how do you review a security platform that was accused of being a proxy for an unfriendly government just one year ago? Kaspersky Lab denies the allegations, but regardless of what the truth is, the accusation is out there.


Only download apps from official app stores like Google Play, or stores of reputable app makers; avoid third-party stores and side-loading. A quick look at the reviews in the app store before installing an app might help. Avoid apps with predominantly bad or dubious reviews. Assess requests for irrelevant access rights or permissions by questionable apps critically. Of course, not every app that shows strange behaviour is necessarily malicious, but it is good to consider whether it is genuine and worthy of use. Google Play continuously updates its policy to guarantee a certain degree of security, e.g. requiring app developers to verify their identity, digitally sign their apps, and meet the target API level requirements. In recent years, apps have also had to undergo several review processes and be approved by Google regarding privacy (e.g. access to SMS and background location) to stay in Google Play.


Avast Mobile Security Free is an ad-supported product which includes a variety of security-and privacy-oriented features such as malware scan, web and Wi-Fi security, Hack Alerts, and App Insights. Photo Vault and anti-theft functionality are also included, but with some limitations. Other app components, such as Junk Cleaner and Wi-Fi Speed, help the user monitor different aspects of the device. Avast asked us to test and review the free version of their product. Please note that Avast owns AVG, and the respective Android apps appear to be identical in functionality. There are some minor differences in the user interface, however.


The perfect mobile security product for all devices and all users does not exist. As with e.g. Windows products, we recommend drawing up a short list of products that might be suitable for you, after reading about the advantages and disadvantages of each product in our review. A free trial version of each candidate product can then be installed and tested for a few days (one at a time); this should make the decision easier. With Android security products in particular, new versions with improvements and new functions are constantly being released.


We installed Kaspersky total security in a virtual machine running a fully updated and activated copy of Windows 10 Home, ran it through its paces on the clean machine, then exposed it to test files from the European Institute for Computer Anti-Virus Research (EICAR) and Spyshelter.com. It detected 100 per cent of our test files.


Kaspersky safe kids is a distinct app that, although part of a total security subscription, you may need to seek out and install separately from the main security suite on your own PC (putting a fourth shortcut on your desktop) and also on any devices your kids are using. It links through a Kaspersky account, which will need to be logged in on every device.


The TSA Score is determined by analyzing the latest review data from multiple independent testing laboratories, other reputable third party review sites and our many years of experience in the security software industry. The results from these sources are then inputted into a proprietary formula that determines the final TSA Score.


You can jump to the reviews of those individual products by clicking on the links in the bar at the top of this page, but bear in mind that this article is really designed to be read all the way through, as the features of Kaspersky Anti-Virus are also present in the higher-level security suites, of course.


A Windows Troubleshooting Wizard looks for any non-standard operating system settings which might have been damaged by malware, and enables fixing them all in a single operation. This sounds like a good idea, but we're not sure how many issues it looks for, and it didn't find anything on our review system beyond the auto-run problem we knew about already. Bitdefender's Vulnerability Scan located more issues on our test system, although they were all relatively trivial (our system 'wasn't restricting access to site management policies for security zones', for instance.)
