Congratulations! SecureIT is installed and is working full-time to keep your device safe from virus and malware threats. Now let’s get started with SecureIT Android!

You’ll see SecureIT’s main menu after installation. From here you can scan your device and manage application permissions, setup your anti-theft features, adjust your parental controls, and monitor your device’s activity.

The first thing you’ll want to do is run a quick scan to ensure your device is free of infections followed by setting up your anti-theft features. We’ll walk through how simple it is to do both below. We’ll also show you a short walk-through of setting up your parental control options and managing your application permissions.
