If you browse a lot from your Nokia N95 smartphone and you cannot live without the 3G mobile internet and then again you share the same phone to manage all your mobile financial and personal transactions/information then it is quite mandatory for you to safeguard it properly.
Most of the Nokia antivirus solutions or mobile security apps that are available out there in the market has a common problem, they are not your “all in one solution”. You usually have to end up installing 2 or at times 3 separate applications to safeguard information, filter important information and also to block intrusion attempts to your bluetooth discoverable smartphone.

Well, no more!
With Kaspersky Mobile Security installed on your S60 N-Series or E-Series smartphones device you will be able to finally have your peace of mind with a complete 360 degrees solution which can take care of all your privacy, security and virus issues.
Kaspersky Mobile Security for Nokia can restrict access to predefined contents if your handset is stolen or when the bluetooth is on, encrypt important information like credit card and account numbers on the phone, protect you with its mobile firewall from automated and manual mobile hijacking, intrusions, theft, attempts. It can also track down your handset automatically in case your phone is stolen by tracking the handset through co-ordinates based on your device’s GPS location.
This is a must have mobile antivirus application for your 3rd edition and 5th edition Nokia S60 phones regardless of how novice or expert a user you are simply because in today’s world of mobility, almost everything can transact through the phone and not having a security measure simply can mean a disaster to your life!
Some of the awesome features of Kaspersky Mobile Security:
Remote SMS Content Control: Remotely lock access, or simply encrypyt, or delete important contents like Contacts, Account Numbers, MMS, SMS etc. automatically in case your phone is surely stolen. Simply send a SMS with a preset secret code to your own stolen Nokia and voila! everything will be locked with a secret key and the evil can do no harm ;).

If you left it at home then you can check the Google Maps to see if the actual phone location is near about in your house or phone.
Silent Alert for Unauthorized SIM Change: Do you always use the same phone number on your smartphone? If you do then chances are that you use the same SIM card over and over again. One of the most common action of any thief/hijacker is that they instantly change and ditch your SIM cards so that you cannot trace them through the telecom provider.
