Web Guard allows you to filter content when you are using your preferred browser.

Mobile Security for Android uses a local Virtual Private Network (VPN) on your device with almost no impact to the network speed. It uses a local analyzer to filter all network traffic from your device when using the Trend Micro VPN. You will see a key icon on your device's status bar when Web Guard is enabled.

  • Web Guard is the new name of Mobile Security's Safe Surfing feature.
  • To use other VPN services, you need to disable Web Guard. Manually enable Web Guard when local VPN fails to enable automatically.

To use the Web Guard feature of your Mobile Security for Android, choose any of the following:
