Throughout the entire 2010 World Cup period, Kaspersky Lab is offering football fans free protection for their smartphones – and that could be invaluable if the worst happens and your phone goes missing.
The World Cup is the No.1 sporting event on the planet. Thousands of people will be heading off to South Africa to support their national teams and millions more will be following the matches in bars or on big screens in town centres around the world.
It’d be only too easy to lose your smartphone to pickpockets who will be out to target big crowds of fervent football fans as they cheer their teams on. This is where Kaspersky Mobile Security 9 can save the day.
With Kaspersky Mobile Security 9 installed on a supporter’s smartphone, it can be remotely blocked if it is lost or stolen. The contact details of the owner will be displayed on the screen of a blocked smartphone, allowing anyone who finds it to return the lost device. The location of a lost smartphone can also be pinpointed using its built-in GPS module, and if the SIM is replaced, the owner will receive immediate notification of the phone’s new number.
