If Kill Switch is not enough, McAfee will protect your LG G3 remotely


LG is all set to launch their 2014 flagship LG G3 to India later this month, but with an additional surprise along with it. Recently LG ties up with McAfee, part of Intel Security to bring the award winning security App to LG G3 that includes a new anti-theft feature designed to protect users from unauthorized factory resets. The Kill Switch provides users the ability to disable their phones remotely in the event of device loss or theft. The software allows content to be wiped to prevent personal information from being compromised.

“We are working with McAfee to offer a customized version of its award-winning mobile security software that leverages built-in LG capabilities to make security an integral part of LG G3,” said Dr. Ramchan Woo, head of smartphone planning division of LG. “The implementation of the Kill Switch feature is just one of several specific measures we are taking to ensure that our users can easily and comprehensively protect themselves from the growing threat landscape, both physical and online.”

Through a multi-year global partnership, LG G3 is now equipped with a customized version of McAfee Mobile Security to provide users with an easy and comprehensive way to protect themselves from security and privacy threats and identity theft. Antivirus, data backup, remote lock and wipe, and remote tracking are all available through the McAfee app for five years at no cost.

During the launch event, LG announced about the Kill Switch feature which adds the additional layer of protection apart from McAfee’s Mobile Security. This not only preventing an un-authorized person to set-set your device, but also block him to root it. Even an user can remotely wipe the entire data of the device so that no one can access the private data of yours.

“We are working with LG to build and implement unique security measures that empower users to live a safer, worry-free digital life,” said John Giamatteo, senior vice president and general manager, McAfee consumer business. “Partnering with global mobile leaders such as LG is one of the many ways that we’re working tirelessly to deliver innovative solutions that enable safer mobile computing for consumers.”
