Engadget giveaway: win a Samsung Galaxy Note 5 courtesy of Bitdefender!

Jon Turi, @jonturi

As major corporations continue to succumb to hacks and the government's prying eyes are still relatively unchecked, it's always a good idea to bulk up your personal security. Bitdefender has been in the business of just that for years and now its new Mobile Security and Antivirus is available to secure your mobile Android devices. The app stays lean by using in-the-cloud antivirus services which are continually updated. On your device, it offers malware scanning, device tracking in the case of possible theft, App Lock to secure individual apps with a pin and Privacy Advisor to help keep your private data safe from snooping apps. There's even Android Wear integration to alert you if you step too far away from your smartphone. If you enter this week, that handset could be a new Samsung Galaxy Note 5 (32GB, Black Sapphire), along with a year's subscription to Bitdefender's service. Just head down to the Rafflecopter widget below for up to three chances at winning this security app and Android smartphone package.

Winner: Congratulations to Vincent T. of Los Angeles, CA!
