Plzz attach few screenshots like you always attached with any new versions here.
Downloaded and installed. Will test it out.
Thank you, Ilkers.
At a first look, I AM LOVING THE NEW DESIGN (specially the ICONS)! :-TU
How do I turn on this feature?
Can anyone attach few screenshots here?
I will attach screen shots tomorrow, but also you should try it yourself
It is enabled by default.
I dont have an extra phone to try beta.
How does it work? I have a malicious .apk not detected by CMS, but detected by Comodo Antivirus. I thought it will be scanned in the cloud (with Comodo AV) and I’ll get an alert. I was wrong. APK was not detected after installation.
Still not compatible with android 4.3. They are with version 4.4 …thanks
Sorry, I learned that I was wrong about default settings for Cloud scan. You need to have active Wi-fi connection and “Enable cloud scan for APK only” should be enabled under settings to use Cloud scan. Then the process is as below.
-First a local scan is performed
-Then the file hash values are sent to File Lookup Service (FLS) and the result is fetched.
-If file defined as non-virus by both local base scan and cloud scan, CMS will consider the file as non-virus, in all other cases CMS will consider the file as virus
what is the problem you see on 4.3? I am using S4 with Android 4.3 and it works fine.
only the APK files will be sent to cloud for data and performance constraints. Is your malicious file an APK?
Here is the screen shots for main menus.

As impossible version 2.3 to enable the manager, despite the confirmation of “super-user” and reboot. Tkanks
@ilkers yes, of course. I repeated this test and it failed again.
Wish I had an Android so I could test it.
Please send me the APK file over message or mail, so that we can test it.
You are missing all fun
Ability to access private sms’s directly from the status bar (via password) rather than having to select “Tools” tab, Private Space, , Private Communication.
After installing the update, the firewall stopped working.
The solution, if anyone else has this issue, is (from Application Control) to clear Data, restart CMS. Redo your settings. Everything should be fine now.
İlker mentioned it but let me remind that the cloud scanning is working only when the device has WiFi connection. Since it is a new feature, we are cautious about side effects.
And I have to correct a misunderstanding: the .apk file is not sent to cloud (there are legal restrictions on that). Instead, only the hash value along with other descriptive information is sent.
