MiFon 9-in-1 Security Suite is the answer to every Android phone owner’s security prayers. The app bundles security, privacy and tracking features in the one app. A limited version of the MiFon app is available for free from Google Play with a chance to try the fully featured Pro version as a free trial before deciding whether to buy it.

MiFon offers malware protection, auto backup, anti-theft, find me features and more. These features will work even without internet connectivity, making MiFon an attractive proposition for all Android users worldwide. Indeed, Indian phone company Intex has bundled the app with its newest phone as standard.

The nine areas of security, privacy and tracking covered by the app are:

Antivirus and anti-malware protection

This offers protection for those users who access their banking via their phone, have a mobile phone payment app such as Android Pay or PayPal enabled or who simply have the misfortune to encounter a trojan or virus.

Backup

Everyone should back up their phone regularly, to the cloud or to an alternative location. But for those who never get around to it, MiFon can automatically create backups of texts, contacts, photos and even some social media to a personal storage cloud.

Optimization

This will clear the cache and free the memory.

Set and Forget

These three options above only need to be set up once and can then be forgotten. What could be easier?

Find me

Users who have lost or mislaid their phone can send an SMS text, even when it’s set to silent, to activate a loud siren sound. Once located - or not - users have the ability to choose to lock or wipe the phone if needed. This feature also allows users to enable phone status monitoring (battery life and so on) and receive email reports with details if the phone is not with them.

Panic button

This feature, only available on the Pro option, is the mobile phone equivalent of ringing the emergency services. It allows users to email emergency notification, location and photos to a nominated group of contacts.

Anti-theft

A really important feature, this, given the number of phones which are left, forgotten or just plain swiped by someone on the make. It’s only available through the Pro version, but could pay for itself on its own. It will send the thief’s photo, track the phone and offer the registered owner full control over it, no matter where it is.

Geo-location for a specific group

This feature is under development but once available, users can share their location with a chosen contact group. This is designed for parents who need to know that their child has arrived safely in class, for instance, or perhaps for concerned friends looking out for a singleton on a blind date or a night out.

Remote activation and control

Users of the MiFon Pro option can set a passphrase and security locks so that they can retain control over their phone if it’s lost or stolen.


MiFon Pro is available to try for 15 days free following the instructions on the Google Play site. After that time users can revert to the free options or purchase a permanent full upgrade. Users with questions can contact the team through FacebookTwitter or helpdesk email.
