It goes without saying that as a blogger I have a lot of tech devices. And with two game-loving children, I find I’m often lending those devices to my boys so that they can watch shows or play games online, especially when we’re out of the house running errands. Of course, that means that sometimes apps are downloaded without my permission or other content is changed and I don’t realize. Once, my youngest son actually downloaded a horoscope app from an ad embedded in a game. I wasn’t happy when I saw that $30 charge on my account!
I’ve learned quite a bit about apps and permissions since that incident but I knew I could still be doing a better job of protecting my device and my privacy online, so I was very excited to test out the ESET Mobile Security app for Android devices. I decided to install the app on my Android tablet as the boys tend to use it more than I do and protecting them online is something I’m very passionate about. After a quick and easy installation, I was ready to test out the app!
