F-Secure has been selected to power TalkTalk MobileSafe™, an innovative new Android-compatible mobile security app. Available free to all TalkTalk Mobile handset and SIM customers, TalkTalk MobileSafe offers a complete solution to protect users’ content, devices and privacy.

Based upon F-Secure’s comprehensive Mobile Security package, MobileSafe will provide TalkTalk Android customers with anti-virus, safe browsing, anti-theft, parental controls and call/SMS filtering.

TalkTalk already offers the UK’s safest broadband connection with HomeSafeTM, its unique whole home security solution, and the Super Safe Boost provided by
F-Secure. Extending the relationship to cover TalkTalk Mobile devices, the ISP is now able to protect customers and their families on any internet-connected device in any location.

F-Secure Mobile Security is a complete security suite that protects mobile devices from all common mobile threats, such as viruses, malware, spyware and Trojans. The anti-theft feature helps guard against mobile device loss and theft.

If a smartphone is lost or stolen, the user is able to locate, lock and wipe the entire contents of the device, keeping all personal content safe. F-Secure Mobile Security also offers call and SMS filtering, ensuring that any unwanted or nuisance calls or texts are blocked from reaching the device. Finally, the powerful parental control functions help parents to keep children safe by controlling the online content accessed on a smartphone or tablet.

“It’s important for us to continually provide our customers with the best solutions that meet their needs, across all their internet-ready devices,” explained Dan Meader, director of TalkTalk Mobile. “More than 200,000 customers are already with TalkTalk Mobile.

“As a trusted provider of internet services to our broadband customers, with our Super Safe Boost, provided by F-Secure, and TalkTalk’s unique HomeSafe filtering solution being used in more than a million British homes, the next logical step is for us to extend our leadership in online safety to our mobile customers.”

Allen Scott, managing director of F-Secure UK & Ireland, explained, “Consumers are using their smartphones just as much, if not more, than their PCs and Macs now. As a result, they are looking to their mobile provider to ensure that their mobile experience is safe and secure. TalkTalk is well positioned to capitalise on this market need using MobileSafe.”

Pricing and availability
TalkTalk MobileSafe will be available for free for all existing and new TalkTalk Mobile handset and SIM customers. To use TalkTalk MobileSafe customers simply download the app from the Google Play App store and activate their chosen security features on their smartphone.
