“There are more mobile devices than actual people”, this is what you can easily notice if you walk into a restaurant, a bar or even in the office. “People need to be connected more online than ever before”, tell me if you don’t notice this.

So what makes you safe from cybertheft? Online banking? Identity theft? Virus attacks?
If you don’t have protection, then don’t wonder if someone hacks your facebook, use your account as a drone to send porn or even send links without even you knowing it. Yes, that’ right. That’s what happens when you don’t have the right protection on your mobile devices.
Ther are lots of FREEWARE that you can download via the Google Play Store but does it really give you what you need? I have seen some software that are suspicious just by seeing the file size. A battery saving app that is as big as facebook app, a flashlight app that is as big as a large size JPEG.
For the past years when i shifted from my old BlackBerry device to Android, i have been using Kaspersky Lab to protect my phones and recently they have launched the Kaspersky Internet Security Multi-Device Multi-Platform license.
So what’s new with the Kaspersky Lab muti-device license?
