Regain control of your device

There is almost certainly a lot of personal information on your Android device, so you could have big trouble if you lose your phone or, worse still, if it's stolen. Avira Free Android Security will let you lock Android phone to protect the information inside and show where your phone is in Google Maps. You can use the app with five devices at the same time.

How to use Avira Free

Avira Free Android Security is easy to set up and use. First of all, you need set the email address. The default is the Gmail address that you set in your Android phone, but you can change this if you like. After you set the email address, you will receive a confirmation email. Then, once you've clicked on the link in the confirmation email, the setup will be complete. If you then access the URL via a PC or other device, you can check and manage the information in your Android phone.

From here, you can check where you phone is by GPS, lock it, and display contact information. Also you can delete data to prevent it falling into the wrong hands, and even sound loud alarm for 20 seconds to warn when your phone has been stolen. The alarm is also useful if you've lost your phone at home!

Avira Free Android Security also includes an antivirus feature, which scans your apps and files for potential threats. This function is easy to use but the antivirus options are limited compared to apps such as Zoner Antivirus Free or avast! Mobile Security. These offer similar data protection solutions to Avira Free Android Security, but with extra features, such as the ability to isolate the device or SD card for scanning and scheduled scanning.
