Head on over to the Play Store and download CM Security. Once the app has downloaded, open up the app and tap ‘Scan,’ which is located in the middle of the screen. CM Security will then scan all of the apps on your device to detect any viruses, trojans, vulnerabilities, adware and spyware.


2. Scan SD Card

By tapping on the ellipsis on the top right-hand corner, you can tap on ‘Scan SD Card.’ CM Security will then scan the external SD cards to detect any threats, and will alert you if any threats are detected.

3. Clean Up Junk

You can clean up junk on your Android phone or tablet by tapping on the ellipsis on the top right-hand corner and tapping on ‘Clean Up Junk.’ You will then see what apps are taking up the most storage on your Android phone or tablet. Simply check the apps that you want to cache the junk and tap ‘Solve.’

4. Boost Memory

After you cleaned up the junk on your Android phone or tablet, you can then remove apps that are taking up space to boost the memory on your device. Just check the apps you want to remove and tap ‘Boost’ on the bottom of the screen. You can also enable ‘game boost’ to make sure the games on your device run smoothly.


5. Find Your Phone & Prevent Unwanted Phone Calls

One of CM Security’s best features is that you can locate your Android phone. You can either go to the ellipsis in the top right-hand corner and tap on ‘Find Phone,’ or you can visit https://findphone.cmcm.com. You will need to logon to the website with your email address. CM Security will ask you to set a CM Security password and you will be able to locate your phone on a map. By tapping on ‘Yell,’ you can make the device yell to find it. The ‘Yell’ button will make your device play a loud sound for 60 seconds, even if your device is set to silent.

You can also lock your device to protect your privacy. If anyone tries to break into your phone and enters the incorrect password 3 or more times, the app will take a picture of the infiltrator. CM Security allows you to block unwanted phone calls. You can block unwanted phone calls by tapping tapping ‘Call Blocking.’ CM Security will then block all unwanted calls in your blocking blacklist.


6. Schedule Routine Scanning
