Shine offers a belief and a mission that should really be at the forefront of all mobile users concerns- mobile protection being a digital right. This innovative app differs from many of its anti-virus/anti-malware competitors and predecessors where they place focus on preventative measures and holistic approaches to protecting your phone. Unlike conventional anti-virus/anti-malware providers, Shine doesn’t analyze code in search of patterns nor does it use definition files or virus signatures like McAfee. While these methods are tried and true, the downside is your device is infected and already undergoing damage and there is a lot of invasive work to be done to restore it to its former glory.
Shine utilizes real-time behavioral analysis on your device itself, monitoring all events taking place and identifying new threats moments after they occur. While viruses can’t be erased immediately upon their detection since Shine needs these initial movements to recognize the threat, the app’s other function can provide a close second in terms of effectiveness. Devices running Shine can “self heal” after a malicious code attacks and is then stopped. Shine is actually reversing specific damages done to your device step-by-step, a largely welcomed change to the sometimes unpredictable and unreliable process of restoring a back up and re-installing items saved prior to the infection.
This all may sound too good to be true and you may be wondering if the trade-off is that you kiss your battery life away. The founders have reassured us that [they] “take less than 1 percent of battery life and determine what’s bad or good back in the lab, just the brain is installed on the device. It runs when [they] have to inspect something (Tech Crunch).” While this figure may be relative to individual devices, in this case the positives of Shine are worth their weight in some CPU usage. Experience a new level of digital protection for you and those you care about; download Shine and always be a step ahead of threats.
