Another native BlackBerry 10 app has gone headless this week. While Max Secure Security won't be needed by everyone, I'm a pretty big fan since I tend to load a bunch of Android apps on my devices regularly since BlackBerry 10.2.1 hit the scene.
Although BlackBerry is number one in the mobile security market, the loading of some Android APK's may be an issue and I tend to run a scan at lest once a week. As you'll see below in the press release Max Secure Security can now perform the scan in the background thanks to its headless ability.
While it isn't the cheapest of apps (priced at just under ten bucks) it does give you piece of mind and if you ask me that's money well worth spending. Of course, I'm sure not everyone will agree with me but that's life.
Pune, India (May 1st, 2014) – Max Secure Software announces the release of version its eighth version of Max Mobile Security for BlackBerry® 10 (NASDAQ: BBRY). This release enhances the Smart Scan (Patent pending) Scanner and also brings in background scanning with the headless feature.

1. APK Scanner scans malicious Android run-time apps for BlackBerry 10 and even gives the privacy risk based on permissions.

3. Max Safe Browser integrated adds anti-phishing and enhanced privacy for our users.
