When I search on F-secure website, I get two things, mobile antivirus and mobile security. Is it required to install both on my Nokia N73 ME , if not which one of them is required for complete protection. How to install free trial version and what to do after trial period.
“F-Secure Mobile Anti-Virus” is for Symbian S60 R2 phones and includes a virus scanner only. However, your phone uses the Symbian S60 R3 operating system. For that, you need “F-Secure Mobile Security for S60 3rd Edition” – it includes a virus scanner and a firewall.
You install the product like you install any other program on your phone. Once installed, the program has a menu item that would allow you to register it on-line. Your phone must have GPRS access properly configured, or you won’t be able to register and update the product.
Strictly, speaking, however, you don’t need this program (or any other like it). There are no viruses for Symbian S60 R3. Unlike the R2 version (for which viruses do exist), the R3 version is much more secure and is incompatible with the R2 version. Buying an anti-virus program for it is a waste of money and phone memory, IMHO.
