1, We do not plan to have VPN for Android. There are plenty of other VPN solutions that you can use.
2, An SMS filter to filter SMS was removed from the product after Google changed the policy for developers.
3, Ad-blocker can be only a part of browsers due to the the sandbox nature of Android.
4, We already have antiphishing protection to block access to malicious websites.

3. Tell that to Blokada and Adguard developers. Ads can be blocked through dns filtering (Blokada), and you can also intercept https traffic using your own certificate and cut it (AdGuard) - all this is done through emulation of a local vpn or through creating a local proxy server. There are options to do this directly, if the user has root rights.

4. Your protection supports 1.5 built-in browsers, which are impossible to use if you have even a little taste and customization needs, while even another European antivirus with more powerful protection (according to the results of tests by independent laboratories) supports many more options.

"future developments for android mobile platforms" - if we talk about such a title, then the mobile Eset with the current management has no future. > Protection against thieves is useless in principle, any thief immediately turns off the phone and makes a hard reset. > Phishing protection for a couple of built-in browsers is a moderately needed feature. > Virus protection - viruses for android? They are terribly rare, and most phones have free antivirus programs built in.

And, as the administrator writes, here are no plans for the firewall, here are no plans for vpn, here are no plans to block ads and trackers, here are no plans to do at least something useful on the phone except battery discharge :) Sorry for being straightforward. :) I hope I don't get banned here for this. оО
