LG brings McAfee Anti-Theft feature to LG G3

LG announced its much-anticipated flagship smartphone LG G3 last month after several leaks and speculations. Today, the company has teamed up with McAfee to bring anti theft features to the LG G3.


LG G3 will come pre-installed with a version of McAfee Mobile Security that includes a new anti-theft feature designed to protect users from unauthorized factory resets. This comes in the form of a Kill Switch which lets users disable their phones remotely in the event of loss or theft. Personal information is wiped out from the phone which saves it from compromising.

The implementation of the Kill Switch feature is just one of several specific measures we are taking to ensure that our users can easily and comprehensively protect themselves from the growing threat landscape, both physical and online.” said Dr. Ramchan Woo, head of smartphone planning division of LG in an official release.

Moving on, the partnership will also pre-install McAfee Mobile Security app that delivers antivirus, data backup, remote lock and wipe, and remote tracking free for five years. All other LG users may download McAfee Mobile Security for free on the Google Play Store.
