Trustgo Android Mobile Security Discontinued

TrustGo Gone. Use Avira

Trustgo was purchased by Chinese search giant Baidu and was transformed into Baidu Mobile Security which doesn't seem interested in the English speaking market or Google Play Store. Trustgo no longer exists, has no website, and hasn't been updated in over a year. Apparently the new Baidu product is pretty good, but I can't recommend it to Americans who don't read and speak Chinese. Here is a link to their "Read before using" document: http://www.baidu.com/duty/

I have replaced mine with Avira for Android. Avira has these advantages
  • It gets very good ratings on Virus detection.
  • It comes from a company that has been in the anti-virus business for many years and makes well respected and well rated products.
  • It is free.
  • Included with the free version is:
    • Full antivirus
    • Remote lock, siren, and wipe your device if lost
    • A good App locker program
    • A privacy guard I've found useful
  • I have not detected any slowdown or problems during my testing on both tablets and my phone
