Trustlook Releases Innovative Solution for Adware on Android

Mobile Security Innovator Offers Increased Protection With Launch of Adware Detection Feature

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwired - March 10, 2016) - Just like malware, adware is becoming a significant problem for mobile users. Have you ever wondered how that mysterious icon ended up on your Android phone's start screen? You aren't alone. Adware can start as a small minor glitch on one's personal device and escalate into something larger, like a virus or data breach. And now, Trustlook Mobile Security, an innovator in next-generation mobile security solutions, has just released an Adware detection feature in the latest version of its product, 3.1.8.

Using a sophisticated model and countless hours of research from its internal engineering teams, the latest version of Trustlook Mobile Security is able to finely and efficiently comb through a mobile device in record speed. If Trustlook detects adware, the user will be notified and will be able to uninstall the application.

"Protecting sensitive information is the first thought on Trustlook's mind and can finally be the last thought of our users," said Allan Zhang, founder and CEO of Trustlook. "Adware is fast becoming a new villain in the game of mobile security and Trustlook feels it has the right solution."

Android remains an adware magnet with tens of thousands of apps that collect information without the user's knowledge. In fact, according to PC Mag, approximately 15 percent of all Android apps are unwanted and can contain adware. These unwanted apps include intricate software that deploy different advertising features and malware onto your device. Data such as credit card information, photos, contacts, and location can be obtained through these aggressive apps.

"Things can become complicated with how deeply these apps embed into the operating system of the phone," said Zhang. "If not detected early, these potentially dangerous apps become very difficult to remove."
