Avira Ships New iOS Mobile Security App with Integrated ‘Avira Answers’ Button for Tech Support

Tech Community Answers Any PC, Mac, Android or iOS Support Question 24/7 for Free

Tettnang, Germany --- December 18, 2013 – This holiday season, Santa’s (tech) helpers are working at Avira. Security expert Avira announced today that it has launched a new version of its Avira Mobile Security app for iOS that puts all the tech support one could ever want right in their pockets with an integrated  button linking directly to its popular ‘Avira Answers’ service.

Avira Mobile Security for iOS scans apps for malicious processes, provides anti-theft location capability, and connects with Avira’s Secure Backup service. New in this version, customers can also connect with one touch to a community of support persons who can answer  tech support questions about any PC, Mac, Android or iOS device. The Avira Answers service is available 24x7 worldwide and users can post questions and receive notifications for free, and view web content and YouTube video answers natively within the app.

“This is the perfect all-around security app to have on your iPhone or iPad. It’s especially important during the holiday shopping season, when you’ll be protected from any malicious app downloads, as well as empowered to handle any technical problems that come up,” said Leon Crutchley, mobile products manager for Avira. “The app is particularly useful because our Avira Answers community comprises passionate techies from all around the world who want to help other Avira users.”
