There are plenty of free software products available designed for smartphones and tablets, but paid versions provide a more complete suite. The McAfee Labs collected 2.47 million Android malware samples in 2013, with 744,000 in Q4 alone.

 

"With India placed on the tip of mobile device explosion, there is an overwhelming need of adoption of security and privacy protection in our digital lives," said Jagdish Mahapatra, McAfee Managing Director in India, in a statement. "With free access to our award-winning mobile security product, Indian consumers will be empowered to access all the benefits of this connected world and enjoy a safe mobile life."

 

India is adopting smartphones faster than any other nation, with an estimated 185 million mobile Web browsers within the next three months.
