F-Secure has been selected to power TalkTalk MobileSafeT. Available free to all TalkTalk Mobile handset and SIM customers, TalkTalk MobileSafe offers a complete solution to protect users’ content, devices and privacy.
Based upon F-Secure’s Mobile Security package, MobileSafe will provide TalkTalk Android customers with anti-virus, safe browsing, anti-theft, parental controls and call/SMS filtering.
F-Secure Mobile Security protects mobile devices from common mobile threats, such as viruses, malware, spyware and Trojans. The anti-theft feature helps guard against mobile device loss and theft.
If a smartphone is lost or stolen, the user is able to locate, lock and wipe the entire contents of the device, keeping all personal content safe. F-Secure Mobile Security also offers call and SMS filtering, ensuring that any unwanted or nuisance calls or texts are blocked from reaching the device. Finally, the powerful parental control functions help parents to keep children safe by controlling the online content accessed on a smartphone or tablet.

“As a trusted provider of internet services to our broadband customers, with our Super Safe Boost, provided by F-Secure, and TalkTalk’s unique HomeSafe filtering solution being used in more than a million British homes, the next logical step is for us to extend our leadership in online safety to our mobile customers.”
Allen Scott, managing director of F-Secure UK & Ireland, explained, “Consumers are using their smartphones just as much, if not more, than their PCs and Macs now. As a result, they are looking to their mobile provider to ensure that their mobile experience is safe and secure. TalkTalk is well positioned to capitalise on this market need using MobileSafe.”
