Time for smart wearable protection as Bitdefender unveils “iron-clad” security offering

Antivirus software provider Bitdefender has introduced “iron-clad security” to the world of smart wearables with its new Bitdefender Mobile Security & Antivirus, which now incorporates smart watches into its all-around defence.

The New Bitdefender Mobile Security & Antivirus introduces the WearON feature that uses Android Wear watches to make a phone scream from afar, even if it is left on silent, to help find the phone.

WearOn will also alert the smart watch owner with an unmistakable vibration when they stray dangerously far from their phone.

By updating the New Bitdefender Mobile Security & Antivirus software to incorporate the new WearOn feature, Android Wear watch owners can bolster their defences against theft and loss, adding an extra layer of security to ensure complete protection while on the go.

“Bitdefender examines user security from all possible angles to ensure total protection, all the time,” says Catalin Cosoi, Chief Security Researcher, Bitdefender.

“The incorporation of smart wearables into the defense of the owner adds a new facet to security – a highly portable, always-ready layer of defense to definitively eliminate phone theft and loss.’

The New Bitdefender Mobile Security & Antivirus also protects user privacy with App Lock, a recently launched feature that lets device owners block access to sensitive data by protecting certain apps with a PIN code.
