SMS/MMS Antispam – Define trustworthy contacts via customizable black- or whitelist or simply block message traffic from unknown numbers.

Call Intercept – Block unwanted calls in both directions – incoming and outgoing. This is a powerful tool especially suitable for parents to control their children’s phone bills.

Security Audit with Built-in Task Manager – Stay informed about all vital phone functions, including battery life, free disk space, running processes, Bluetooth and device visibility. Take action on the spot to reduce your risk profile.



Key Benefits

ESET's Anti-Theft security system delivers multiple layers of security that allow you to maintain control over phone-stored data in the event of device loss or theft.

SIM Matching – In case of an unauthorized SIM card insertion, you or your trusted contact are automatically notified by a text message containing the IMSI and telephone number, so you can locate the perpetrators.

Remote Lock – Block the phone remotely to prevent unauthorized access to your data.

GPS Localization – Locate your lost or stolen phone by a remote command.

Remote Wipe – As the last instance of protecting your privacy, delete all phone-stored data remotely using an SMS command to wipe clean all your contacts, messages and memory cards.



What if My Phone Gets Lost or Stolen?


First, use any cell phone to activate the Remote Lock on your Phone. Then find out its map coordinates. If you suspect that your data may be in danger, send a Remote Wipe command to delete all phone-store data and prevent its misuse.


What if Someone Tries to Use My Smartphone?

Specify a list of trusted SIM cards. In case someone inserts an unauthorized SIM, your friends or relatives whom you define as Trusted Friend will receive a wealth of information about the inserted SIM, including the phone number, IMSI and IMEI codes.
