    Hi
    I've just bought a joytab 9.7 specifically for taking abroad with me. I wondered what security I would need to use wifi abroad and protect my passwords etc. I dont plan on logging into my bank or anything just my email, but I dont want that hacked either. Also are there any other antivirus apps I should be looking at?

    Welcome to the forum

    Your best bet is what you said, don't use your passwords, however there is an app that may help, here

    Hi lbaker, congratulations on your new Joytab and welcome to the forum. Nice of you to become a member of Android Tablets. The app recommended by my friend leeshor should take care of your need for a firewall. If you feel you need one, there are also several free anti-malware apps available on the markets. I'm using Lookout on mine with no apparent performance issues. Another popular one is AVG Antivirus Free.
