Some of you guys may have spotted the F-Secure Mobile Security software before. It’s an easy-to-use anti-virus solution for Windows Mobile handsets, however until now it wouldn’t run on Orange handsets due to a certificatation block. Today F-Secure and Orange have announced that F-Secure Mobile Security is now available to Orange handsets too.
Give the trial a go by downloading it here and copying the appropriate CAB file across to your handset and running it with File Explorer. Don’t worry if you’re confused by all this CAB file stuff because the service will be available to grab on Orange World from August. You’ll then get the software delivered directly to your handset and receive immediate protection against mobile viruses. You’ll get a weeks free trial followed by a £1.50 monthly charge via SMS.
