From the name of this app you would say 360 Security is an antivirus.
It is mostly correct but the Android application does more than that, functioning as a true point of control for devices. We must state that despite every feat this app is free to download so you will have a strong reason to be amazed by its description.
Let us see how the app works.
The whole series of options and functions can be accessed from opening point. To be more exact the control panel is the first thing that is displayed. The interface is a pleasant one and for things to go smoother you can scan your gadget with a simple touch of the screen.
360 Security considers that the system is completely optimised when there commendations given are fulfilled 100%.
You would say it’s complicated to check all the reports but the developer has carefully designed the interface in order to make everything easier with animations and colours. Therefore the screen displays simple graphic elements which show percentages of the security and optimisation levels and every level has a colour which is easy to decipher. If the screen is red, orange or purple it means that there are some problems to solve and as you take care of more the screen colour changes until it reaches blue or green, which means your device is fully optimised. Isn’t that simple?
A universal problem for Android devices is the fact that despite their large storage space and RAM memory the user might realise that there isn’t enough space to download another app or that the easiest of tasks lags. The problem is usually caused by residual data which you do not longer use but which stayed stored or by the fact that there are many processes opened.
So how does 360 Security solve the problem?
By making an entire tab available to you, tab which includes functions for deleting residual files, a memory booster and an app manager. If you want to completely avoid the hassle you can set the app to automatically do it for you. Of course there is the option of manually selecting what processes and apps you want to close or what data you want to delete etc.
And the available functions are not yet finished!
Would you like your device to be safe physically as well?
360 Security can put your mind at ease from this point of view, offering the possibility that by creating an account on their website you could protect your phone or your tablet against theft.
To be more specific in case the device gets stolen there is the option of blocking or deleting the content on the namely gadget by simply accessing the account. Moreover there is another option similar to “Call a Friend”. When the SIM card (from your smartphone or tablet) is changed, a friend whose number is previously saved for this option will receive an alert message. Last but not least you can track your device on a map so overall you get a fair amount of control if you ever have theft issues.
This app’s strengths are its multi-functionality and its friendly interface. It works very smoothly on Android devices although it may cause lags when the gadgets have older versions of operating systems or weaker memory.
Its main weakness is the fact that for performing all the tasks it was programmed to, the app consumes a large bit of your battery. You should also know that the app creates shortcuts on your device’s home screen and demands access for an entire series of data.
To sum up, 360 Security Android app knows to perform an impressive number of tasks and works as a personal assistant. If you have a strong battery which supports the app you will definitely enjoy it!
