McAfee updates Mobile Security to 2.0

If your a smartphone user that loves for your device to be secure, or a person that is paranoid with the security of it, you'll like to welcome McAfee Mobile Security 2.0. The Intel owned company has just refreshed its suite of apps that protect your Android, BlackBerry, and Symbian devices. Users can take advantage of features such as Complete Anti-virus, Anti-spyware, Anti-phishing Protection, Call and SMS Filtering. Android customers also get the new and still improving App Protection, which is said to interpret "how apps are accessing and possibly transmitting personal data," in order to keep your privacy under control.

The upgrade to this new version is free for customers that already subscribed to their subscription in version 1, but new customers can fork over $29.99 and get one.

So how protected are you on your phone. This below YouTube video from McAfee titled "Use it or lose it" shows how you can be losing your data to crooks and not even know about it. But seriously, how secure is your smartphone? If you are an Android user, and wants a free security solution, I recommend you use Lookout Security. If you use another security suite for any smartphone, feel free to share it in the comments below the video.
