Privacy Advisor gives you detailed info about what your installed apps are doing in the background without your knowledge. It even provides a score reviewing your application based on the danger level of their clues. If thr Privacy score is lower , it indicates there are some dangerous apps installed on your device that you should take care off.
When the Web Security tool is turned on, it will keep you safe against rogue/malicious sites and their traps while you browse the Internet, no matter what browser you use : chrome or default Android browser.
Whenever you access a site that contains phishing, fraud, malware or simply isn’t trusted, Web security module kicks in to warn you about it.
The Anti-Theft tool helps you to find misplaced phone or tab, when this module is activated you can remotely track your lost device and lock it or even prevent your sensitive data falling into the hands of bad by wiping your Android device.
Anti-theft tool module is categorized into two parts: Web control and SMS control. Through Web control, in case the device gets lost or stolen, you can use all the Anti-Theft features (remote locate, lock and wipe) from my.bitdefender.com and all you need is the PIN number that you created.
SMS control will work on Android phones or tabs with GSM hardware, for this you have to choose a ‘trusted phone number’ for the SMS command service. The trusted number will receive notifications when the SIM card in the phone is changed, and is also the only number allowed to issue the WIPE command through SMS. But make sure you enter the phone number along with country code , for instance in Indonesia you must start with +62.
