Kaspersky Mobile Security
Good protection, bad for battery
I enjoy the same peace of mind on my smartphone as I have on my PCs knowing that Kaspersky is constantly working to protect my phone data against viruses, spyware and hackers. However, my only complaint is that it drains the life out of my battery. Before installing Kaspersky, I could get about 2 days worth of standby power, 1.5 days if I used apps and talked on the phone. Now, I have to plug my phone into the charger every night even if I don't use it. I would recommend in a future version of this product that there be energy management settings that allow for minimal usage during sleep times while still offering the same quality of protection. Kaspersky gets better and better every release so I have faith that they will make this happen.

Working Great, Not Slowing Down Phone
I am very happy with Kaspersky on my mobile. It does not seem to be slowing down the phone. I am getting occasional messages re: memory availability but I am not sure if that is Kaspersky or not - it doesn't seem to take much space on the hard drive. The idea of black / white list for incoming calls / messages is good too. Great product.

This is my fourth year using Kaspersky. It is a great system easy to use and maintains a virus free computer. It doesn't bog your computer down with a large program like Norton. I strongly suggest this great program, that is easy to install and does a great job of protecting your data and your computer. I just bought a new laptop tossed the program it came with and installed Kaspersky. I would not trust any other program to protect my computer!

Seems kind of buggy
I like having the feeling of Kaspersky protecting me on my Android like it does on my Macs and PCs, however, the mobile product seems kind of buggy because there have been many times where I have turned on my phone in the mornings and after unlocking my android, Kaspersky comes up and says my phone is locked and prompts me to enter my secret code. I am the only one who knows how to initiate a remote lock to my phone as well as other remote commands. This also happens sometimes when I wake up my phone during the day. It doesn't happen every day but often enough that it can be annoying, and at times, inconvenient.

Eats up the battery
The product is really good, it gives a good protection agains threats and it has some other functions, like disabling the phone if it's stolen, etc. BUT it uses a way too much battery. I have an LG G2 and the battery was exhausting twice as fast as before I installed the software (and after I uninstalled it...)
