Hello, I have some improvements and suggestions for future Eset Mobile Security for Android.
I like Eset Mobile Security 3, it is a very good antivirus.
In Anti-Theft section for full optimization (5 stars) it is necessary to be on always GPS and Mobile Data, this is not good. If GPS and Mobile data are always on battery of smartphone will drain more quickly and privacy of user decrease because some applications may use GPS for localise mobile device, and last but not least invoice for Mobile Data will increase. This thing must be changed. I propose to add a SMS command that will enable GPS and Mobile Data. User can send a SMS command to enable GPS and Mobile Data if smartphone was lost or stolen and automatic enable GPS and Mobile Data when SIM was changed.
Database from Eset Mobile Security 3 indicates after last update version 4805, on http://www.virus-radar.com indicated version is 1809. This thing make confusion, database from Eset Mobile Security 3 should coincide with version displayed on virus-radar.com.
New versions of Eset Mobile Security first are launched on google play and then on official site. In future it is necessary that first new versions and beta versions appear on official site than on google play.
Eset Mobile Security 3 should improve send SMS when SIM was changed and indicate the phone number (in international format for example).
My.eset.com should have possibility to run more tasks for example: run a security scan, check license status of mobile devices, etc.
In next version of Eset Mobile Security for Android will be necessary to add a feature that scan and decrypt files encrypted by ransomware.
Eset Mobile Security need to ad option to delete antivirus logs or to add a configuration for delete logs at number of 10, 20, 40, and 60.
In section Audi Security Eset need to develop something own for privacy advice not to use android displayed information from applications.
For be more interesting Icons from main window (Antivirus, Anti-Theft, SMS and Call Filtre, Anti-Phising, Security Audi, Settings) need to indicate status by color, icons not remain grey but indicates green, yellow, red security status.
Eset Mobile Security for android need to take actions more automatic (automatic put in quarantine or uninstall infected application, files etc.)
Eset Mobile Security should have different modes (Standard, Advanced, Automatic), Standard Mode for classic use and for the most users, Advanced Mode for advanced users with detailed features, extra settings, extra protection; Automatic Mode for best automatic use with recommended settings and take decisions without any actions from user.
On Eset Mobile Security the notification from bar would be interesting as on computer (with active elements). Icon from notification bar to indicate directly the level of security, through the colours.
On computer Eset has the option (In tools) to send a file to analyse. This option would be useful on Android, to send a suspect or possible false positive to analyse.
Eset Mobile Security is necessary to have the following interesting features:
1.Network Control (Measuring input and output data traffic, impose a monthly limit (user-defined) for 3 g data.)
2.Blocking Applications (with a pin code or a gesture)
3.Determination of Advertisements (detects ads and provides complete data tracking)
4. Recovering data from your phone remotely (files, notes, applications, video)
5. The Geographic Perimeter ( The phone performs certain actions (lock, siren, transmitting location) when phone is outside from perimeter. For example: go to a coffee shop and activate the option with a perimeter of 500 meters, so that if someone steals your phone and takes it beyond this perimeter feature activates the specified action.)
6. Web Storage (would be useful for data security and backup)
7. Web Console (Instant overview of security status and all functions performed on your device(s) )
8. Check device’s battery life remotely, update remotely from my.eset.com
9. Parental Control (With the help of Cloud) to be blocked sites by category (drugs, weapons, known viruses, etc.).
In Audi-security would be useful a feature that detect if there are programs (applications) that can interfere with Eset Mobile Security. Also would be useful an option to detect vulnerabilities for example: protection against vulnerability type "Master Key", exploit, and unsafe settings from browsers and from applications.
Eset Mobile Security would be interesting to have the possibility to activate functions, when you shake the phone such as: Update, Task Killer, clean cookies or browser remains, etc.
An important component for Eset Mobile Security would be Anti Format protection. The mobile device may be vulnerable in front of formatting if it's plugged into a computer. An attacker specialize in computer programs can connect your phone to computer and can format the whole device, this thing should be combated.
At Eset Mobile Security Data encryption should be added and feature to create VPN (Virtual Private Network).
Scanning options (fast, smart, Deep) should have detailed customization options for greater customization.
Heuristic-based scan need to be added to detect threats not only on the basis of signatures but also be basis of behaviour.
Section Settings has few functions, should be added for example control of graphical interface, control dynamic icons.
Option to scan a file or directory is not present, this is not very good.
Protection option against potential applications that containing spyware and infringe user privacy should be added.
Anti-Theft should have a feature to phone back, It mean if phone is stolen then can be sent a command that would allow the phone to call you back to listen what happens around.
Eset Mobile Security does not scan SMS from spam, virus, etc. Eset Mobile Security is necessary to scan your SMS (sent and received.)
Updates should have a profile (more profiles) special for roaming, for a successful update in roaming.
Eset Mobile Security would be good to have Network Protection (protection of networks, especially public networks, from attacks). Remote updates are important be made from my.eset.com;
When the SIM card is changed, Eset Mobile Security not always reported the device's location and phone number that belongs to an unauthorized SIM card.
Eset would be good to have option that enable offline license activation.
Eset Mobile Security today is protected (the settings) of a password. In the future if it is possible, it would be better to be added the option to scan your finger footprint (finger scan) to have aces faster to settings and to enhance security.
Eset Mobile Security would be good to have a night mode (this way to be able to optimize processes and settings at night for minimum battery consumption.)
The version of Eset Mobile Security for Windows Phone (Now is new version of windows phone 8.1 and this version need to be secured) has not been upgraded for a long time. For a protective efficiency upgrade to new version supposed to be done every year at all versions from Eset. Eset does not have version for IOS, IOS also need to be secured, in future can be added a version for IOS.
