Max Mobile Security gets updated - introducing Advance APK Scanner

Max Mobile Security

We first took a look at Max Moble Security back in early 2013 and the developers have once again updated the application - this time with a big new bonus feature added - Advance APK Scanner. 

With BlackBerry 10 jumping soon to 10.2.1 and even more Android applications being able to run on our platform, Max Mobile Security will offer you some peace of mind that your precious BlackBerry has the ultimate protection against any possible threats. 

You can catch the full details below: 

Press Release

Pune, India (January 4th, 2013) – Max Secure Software announces the release of the ninth version of Max Mobile Security for BlackBerry® 10 (NASDAQ: BBRY).  The update adds Advance APK Scanner and other improvements.

Advance APK Scanner allows the user to scan APK files not only for malware but also for its permissions and privacy risk. It checks & displays the APK’s permissions and also the privacy risk to the user. It categorizes the android app in 3 levels depending on its privacy risk: low, moderate and critical. 

“With OS 10.2.1 allowing direct apk installation, the apk scanner will help protect our users from android threats,” said Sanjay Pradhan, CEO and Founder of Max Secure Software. Also in the new version, the safe browser has been updated with added features and enhanced browsing speed.

It will be a free update for the current users of Max Mobile Security, available in BlackBerry World.

Why use the APK Scanner in Max Mobile Security?
Since over 90% of the Android malware comes from
3rd party app stores and unofficial sources increasing the threat for BlackBerry 10 users. The APK scanner scans for malware, displays permissions and also assigns the privacy threat level for each APK.

Does anyone know if this is now a realtime scanner? Or does it still require "manual" scans?

HotFix

I too would like a review of this applications functionality. I.e. How does the work?

It is useful and will push me to buy it but the issue with apks are apks themselves(permissions).

I should have bought it when it was sold with a discount.

I have BitDefender side-loaded. Does not work 100% (says on-install scanning is active, but I do not think it works).
But it does have the same .apk permission display/threat scanner.
(I only use this one because I have their multi-device subscription for my entire family).

One positive note: I think Max is officially supported by BlackBerry, so if they add .apk scanning it is more proof that BB10 will really go towards direct .apk installing.

Push security, indeed! One of the best and safe mobile solutions.

Please explain utility here. Android only runs in a sandbox to begin with. As for Network Security, most BES will prevent any apps not from BBW from running in the business space of the device. A simple re-boot of the device and all android apps are cut off until re-started.

Malicious android apps can upload your contacts to the server if you run them as they do take all permissions.

Can Crackberry do a review video please? I am think of buying it. But sure.

"Since over 90% of the Android malware comes from 3rd party app stores and unofficial sources increasing the threat for BlackBerry 10 users."

Easy solution and free: Don't install stuff from 3rd party app stores and unofficial sources. If I'm going to load a bunch of Android apps on my BlackBerry, I might as well get an Android phone. No thanks.

Ahhh. The brilliant advice of a superuser. This is what keeps me coming back to CrackBerry!

Wolf35Nine

Ha, I'm no superuser compared to the folks on this board.
I don't feel like side loading stuff, installing leaked OS every month, etc!

byrdbrained

You're a good sport Wolf - of course I was pulling your chain. I totally get you. I'm on 10.2.1.1055 and I am tired of the leaks for now. I'd love to try the latest leak but I don't feel like re-starting all of my Android games and losing my progress!

"Android threats" lol

Been waiting for this. Already used it a few times this morning. Now we just need to be able to modify apk permissions and we're golden...

Good stuff. More of this, please!

Bought this. Thanks for the review. I cant scan folders. I use the scan folder feature, but I can't select a folder. It only navigates down to a file

Posted via CB10

JeremyMattew231

Select a file in the folder in folder scan, it will scan the entire folder.

nappp

Thank you! Could use an option last folder available and full scan. A folder full of a few folders would be great

Posted via CB10

JeremyMattew231

You can full scan by the scan button on the home tab

nappp

You're right I forgot the word between. Looking for an option between full scan and one last folder of the he directory tree
