Block unwanted calls and SMS with McAfee Antivirus & Security

Stop spam

I got a tip from @tundeiness yesterday evening about McAfee mobile security on his Sony smartphone being an effective tool in blocking unwanted calls and SMS. Here is his account compiled from his tweets:

So, @Mister_Mobility, I can confidently tell you that McAfee antivirus on Sony Xperia can effectively rid you of unsolicited Text messages. You can filter calls and SMS using McAfee mobile security. Note the keywords in those spam SMS and even the number. Then you can input those keywords and McAfee will filter the rest. Notable keywords are ‘free,’ ‘30555,’ ‘caller tunez’ etc. Since I had the phone and I’ve done the needful, I have rested from SPAM SMS and the likes….#winning

Now, I know that McAfee Antivirus & Security app is available for Android devices. I checked in Play Store, and filtering of calls and SMS is listed as one of the features it offers. If you use an Android smartphone and are tired of the crap that your network throws at you, go get it here.

    I’ve always thought having an antivirus on you phone is a silly idea. I haven’t found a compelling use case for one, and even this doesn’t fit the bill. An antivirus just adds unnecessary overhead and give minimal benefit.
    I’m yet to be convinced otherwise

    Muyiscoi, I am your classmate here.

    I already have a fair spam filter in DX Toolbox, among its other numerous functions.

    Good tip, nonetheless.

    @Muyiscoi Interesting point of view but isn’t it better to be safe (by installing one) than sorry? I mean smart devices these days are more or less like a miniature computer? No?
