Bitdefender updates to Add Android Wear Support

August 21, 2014 - Written By Alexander Maxham

Add another app to the list of Android Wear apps. Bitdefender has just updated their app to be compatible with Android Wear. So what can you do with Bitdefender on your Android Wear smartwatch? well all kinds of things. Here’s their full feature list:

“Phone Alert – Your smart watch will vibrate when you step too far away from your phone; Scream – Use your Android Wear device to locate your phone. Ping your smartphone from your smart watch, and it will scream for you even if you left it on silent; Vocal Command – You can simply say, “Where’s my phone?” to find the device.”

So now you can do things like find your device with Bitdefender, which is pretty cool. I’ve actually never used the Bitdefender app, but I’ll have to take it for a spin on my LG G Watch and see how great it really is. But so far I’m really liking the features, and glad to see even more apps getting updated for Android Wear.

For those wondering what the complete changelog is with this update, well we have it down below.

“WearON – New functions for Android smart watches
Two helpful tools come with Bitdefender Mobile Security when installed on a smartphone running Android 4.3 and connected to an Android Wear device.
Phone Alert
Your smart watch will vibrate when you step too far away from your phone, to help you avoid leaving your Android device behind.
Scream
Use your Android Wear device to locate your phone. Ping your smartphone from your smart watch, and it will scream for you even if you left it on silent.

Malware Scanner 
Independently tested to detect 100% of the bad stuff, Bitdefender’s Malware Scanner automatically scans apps as you install them to prevent unpleasant surprises. It works in the Cloud, so it’s always up to date with the very latest virus signatures—enabling it to shield your Android from the newest malware threats and aggressive adware. You can also trigger the Malware Scanner manually at any time, for complete peace of mind.

Privacy Advisor 
You’d be amazed at what some apps can do behind your back! Some can peek into your private data and share it on the Web. Others can access the Internet without your knowledge and download unwanted data to your Android. Privacy Advisor helps you keep an eye on installed apps and shows you which ones abuse your privacy.

NEW! App Lock
Ever leave your phone laying around, unlocked, only to discover a friend hijacked your Facebook account with a silly status? Imagine if this wasn’t done by a friend. Imagine if it was your bank account or stocks app, personal pictures, or any other app containing your sensitive/personal info that was accessed without your knowledge. App Lock lists all the apps installed on your phone, and allows you to easily pick and choose which ones you’d like to setup passcodes for… so the only one that opens them up is you!

Web Security
Whether you’re using Android’s default browser or Chrome, Bitdefender Web Security keeps you safe by browsing the websites you visit in real-time, and steering you away from anything malicious.

IMPROVED! Anti‐Theft 
Misplaced phone? No worries! Bitdefender Anti-theft features its own Web dashboard that allows you to lock, geo-locate, sound an alarm, and wipe your Android from any Internet connected device. It even allows you to listen in on your phone, send out SMS Commands, and alerts you if the SIM card has been changed.”
