If you tend to exercise a bit more caution when using your mobile machine, we imagine you’ll welcome McAfee‘s Mobile Security 2.0 with open arms. The Intel-owned security connoisseur has just introduced its refreshed apps, designed to protect Android handsets and slates, along with BlackBerry and Symbian smartphones. All users can take advantage of features such as Complete Anti-virus, Anti-spyware, Anti-phishing Protection, Call and SMS Filtering, while Android owners can also try out App Protection, which is said to interpret “how apps are accessing and possibly transmitting personal data,” in order to keep your privacy under control. If you’ve been a paranoid — or smart — user since the first release, then the update will come at no cost, while those of you looking to jump aboard the secured ship for the first time will need to fork over the $ 29.99 subscription fee. You’ll find all the details you need in the press release just past the break.
