Total Defense Mobile Security protects your device and data against malicious applications using On-install scanning or On-demand scanning.
*Note: Make sure your mobile device is connected to the Internet. If your device is not connected to the Internet, the scan process will not start. To ensure that you do not use mobile data connect to a WiFi network with your device.
Whenever you install an application, Total Defense Mobile Security automatically scans it using in-the-cloud technology.
This type of scan is provided through the Autopilot feature. Autopilot is a smart on-install scanner that scans all apps you try to install, and stops viruses in their tracks.
If the application is found to be malicious, an alert will appear prompting you to uninstall it. Click Uninstall to go to that application's uninstall screen.
Whenever you want to make sure that the applications installed on your device are safe to use, you can initiate an on-demand scan from the Total Defense Mobile Security interface. Your device's SD card will also be scanned for potentially dangerous apps. The scan progress will be displayed and you can stop the process at any time.
If any malicious applications are detected, information about them will be displayed. Tap any entry to go to that application's uninstall screen.
Optionally, Total Defense Mobile Security can scan the SD card in your device as soon as it is mounted (for example, when disconnecting your device from a computer or when inserting a new card). In this way, any dangerous applications that might be on the card can be detected before they can cause harm.
