Smartphones are probably some of the most personal devices on the planet. They hold our contacts. Our family photos. Our, um, personal photos. Text messages. Private conversations. Many of a person's secrets could probably be uncovered with a little exploration of their smartphone. So, what's the best way to keep things safe on your smartphone? With a little security, of course.

Android offers a few of its own solutions to keeping your private data private, like a customizable unlock pattern, password, or PIN code on the lockscreen. If someone were to get past that, however, it's open season – all your data is just there for the taking.

Thankfully, Bitdefender has your back. Not only does the company offer an antivirus solution for Android that recently received a full makeover, but the same app is packed with a privacy advisor that shows what data your apps have access to, as well as a powerful anti-theft solution. And as of the most recent update, it also includes an app lock feature, which protects data-sensitive apps behind a pin code. Assuming you use some sort of lockscreen protection too, that's double the security.
