Dr.Web for Android updated to version 8.00.6

September 12, 2013

Doctor Web has updated its Dr.Web for Android to version 8.00.6. The update delivers an URL shortening feature and some other innovations as well as fixes for known errors.

Now, if you wish, you can share links to sites you find interesting by sending a shortened URL via e-mail, SMS or by other means. All such shared links are scanned by Dr.Web to make sure they do not lead to infected sites.

The URL filter Dr.Web CloudChecker, which scans links opened in a browser, now works with the browsers Next, Boat Browser and Boat Browser Mini.

The update also provides support for Android 4.3—the latest version to date.

A number of UI improvements have been made. An issue involving the SpIDer Guard icon disappearing every now and then on some devices has been resolved. Also corrected were defects that might cause the application to terminate abnormally.

The updated version of Dr.Web for Android is available on Google Play (Dr.Web Anti-virus, Dr.Web Anti-Virus Life license) and on Doctor Web's site (Dr.Web for Android).

Dr.Web for Android will be updated automatically. If automatic updates are disabled on the device, go to Google Play, choose Dr.Web Anti-virus or Dr.Web Anti-Virus Life license on the application list, and click "Update”.

In order to update via the Doctor Web site, you must download a new distribution file. If the option “New application version” is enabled, a new version notification will be displayed when updating the virus databases. You can start the download directly from this dialogue box.
