Honest answer - F-Secure Android Yes or No !
I know this is a daft place to ask this question...........go compare cannot give me answer
I have trawled though all the marketing hype and cannot find the answer and hope that here, I can find people with similar requirements and experience.
I am a Virgin customer and over a year ago, was given little option to go F-Secure (I have subesquently renewed my licence - better the devil you know....? more like "could not go throught the additional hassle")
The experience I have had is mixed - Banking protection & Firefox disappearing for a while etc. but the whole 'bloated' nature of the application drives me scatty (see pics below for detail)
I am willing to accept that due to my particular circumstances e.g desktop has to run XP etc. that I must accept the heartache.
However now that I have an Android 4.4 Tablet (Galaxy Tab 4) as well, that will be used for limited applications , I have a few spare F-Secure licenses available, so why not utilise iF-Secure?
I am reluctant to do so, due to this 'bloating' - throwing more PC hardware to compensate for inefficient application development (I have been in the IT industry for 30 years - so it is my pet hate), is relatively inexpensive, but the same cannot be said in the smartphone/tablet market = large expense.
The last thing that I need is for my tablet to come to a grinding halt, because I may trawl the net, possibly want to do some online banking etc. and other than vague figures, I cannot find anywhere how much resource F-Secure is going to take.
I would seriously appreciate any answers/comments.
Current problem (and maybe I should have put as separate post to get answers)
The following pics show memory usage for a simple user - BEFORE any other applications are started.
As you can see 417040k is used by Virgin & F-Secure. Nowhere can I find any documentation of what any of these do, are they all required, are some obsolete?
Sure after a while this settles down, but still, over 50% CPU usage?
So any clues as to how to make this more efficient.
