Kritika Chaudhary a cocktail of Beauty and Glamour.

Kritika Chaudhary a divine beauty from Haridwar knocks on gate of Bollywood. Kritika was having a strong passion for acting since her childhood, so after completing her studies, with permission of her parents she came to Delhi for a acting course. Her mother who is with famous ‘Anchor’ company and her father who is in business of ‘Tours and Travel’ were hesitating to allow her to take up acting as her carrier, as they were afraid by various news of casting couches in Bollywood, but seeing Kritika’s determination and strong will power they gave her permission.

After completing her acting course Kritika without wasting any time directly landed in Mumbai in 2011, and was lucky enough to meet Queen of Soap Opera Ekta Kapoor through a common friend, and she got a breakthrough with getting a important character in Balaji’s serial ‘Parichay-Nayee Zindagi Ke Sapno Ka’ which was telecast from Aug 2011, and where she played role of Kunal Chopra’s cousin. Unfortunately she was not satisfied with the way her character grew up in this serial. So she decided not to do any more TV serials, until and unless she gets a major role.

During this period she got a chance to meet film director Vishwas Patil through her friend Vicky who was casting director. Vishwas Patil was making a film ‘Rajjo’ with Kangana Ranaut, Mahesh Manjrekar, Prakash Raj, Jaya Prada and Dilip Tahil, and was in search of beautiful and cute girl to play role of Kangana’s friend, and thus Kritika Chaudhary got a break in silver celluloid. Now this film is complete and will be released soon.

Kritika Chaudhary has also signed a bilingual film in Tamil and Telugu being directed by M. A. Choudhary based on English film ‘I Like You, You Like Me’ which is going to start soon.

Currently she is doing two Bollywood Movies, one “MUMBAI CAN DANCE SAALA” a film based on after-life of bar girls after closing of dance bars in Mumbai, Film is being produced by Ranjeet Sharma and written, directed by Sachindra Sharma, with music by Bappi Lahiri. Second one is “Model” produced and directed by Sumeet Chawla.

Kritika says “This short span of my life in Mumbai and in Bollywood has taught me to face every situation whatever comes in your way. And I believe I will definitely carve a place in Bollywood and make my parents proud”.

McAfee MOBILE SECURITY offers enhanced PRIVACY PROTECTION and APP ‘SAFE ZONE’ for kids

McAfee Mobile Security now available in basic and premium versions

August 14, 2013, India: McAfee today announced an updated version of McAfee® Mobile Security offering new, cutting-edge privacy features including the Multi-user App Profile function which allows consumers to create multiple user profiles or “safe zones” on one device with customized or restricted access to apps. The new version of the award-winning software also features the option to choose between a basic or premium version. The premium version provides a full range of security and best-in-class privacy features on top of the basic version capabilities; the basic version provides select antivirus, backup and anti-theft capabilities at no cost.

In 2012, 1.6 million Americans fell victim to smartphone theft, and stolen mobile phones cost consumers over $30 billion. McAfee Mobile Security basic provides consumers with an easy way to protect themselves from theft and the loss or invasion of their personal data. It protects users’ privacy as it allows them to back up, wipe and restore contacts remotely through an easy-to-use web portal, as well as locate a lost or stolen device on a map, and remotely sound an alarm.

“When consumers contemplate securing their smartphones and tablets, they often think in terms of their susceptibility to mobile malware, overlooking the very real threat to their privacy should their devices become lost or stolen,” said Ari Jaaksi, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Mobile Engineering and Operations at McAfee. “With McAfee Mobile Security basic we’re helping consumers protect their privacy at a baseline level at no cost, which we hope will help encourage users to take a more proactive role in securing their mobile devices and employ secure computing practices and protections.”

Supported by McAfee Global Threat Intelligence, the premium version of McAfee Mobile Security is an all-inclusive solution that includes the industry’s best-in-class app privacy features including app privacy reporting and call and SMS filtering. In the Mobile Security: McAfee Consumer Trends Report – June 2013, McAfee found that more than one quarter of mobile apps are likely more than just adware and may be collecting and handing over precise GPS location, account, and activity information to criminals.

To protect consumers against the abusive permissions of these risky apps, McAfee Mobile Security premium now features the Multi-user App Profile function that allows users to create a “safe zone” for kids, friends, family members or even strangers that may pick up or misuse their devices. It also includes new Data Exposure Analysis, which gives consumers the ability to see for themselves the level of risk their apps may pose.

In addition, the premium version will include a Hidden Device Admin Detector feature, which protects users from Trojans such as the newly discovered Obad. This feature is also included as part of the McAfee Mobile Innovations app available to Android users at no cost on Google Play.

Over 110 Mobile Worldwide Partners
McAfee Mobile Security has shipped with over 150 M devices and is available in over 30 languages to users across the globe. To date, McAfee has signed over 110 mobile partnerships, including Airtel, SingTel, NTT Docomo and SoftBank Mobile, Verizon Wireless and Vodafone. McAfee is also working closely with Intel to expand its presence across emerging platforms and markets so that mobile users everywhere can enjoy the robust privacy protection features offered by McAfee Mobile Security and recently launched with Safaricom in Kenya.

Award Winning Technology
McAfee Mobile Security has received numerous accolades for superior performance by leading publications such as LAPTOP Magazine, PCMag, China Computer Weekly and PC Advisor UK. Additionally, McAfee Mobile Security received a perfect score on the March 2013 test conducted by independent testing lab, AV-Test, as well as the highest score from Stiftung Warentest, a well-recognized Quality Testing Institution & Magazine in Germany.

Availability
A free two week trial of McAfee Mobile Security with all premium features enabled is available on Google Play. After the trial expires, users can choose to use McAfee Mobile Security basic without the premium features at no cost, or purchase the premium version of the app for $2.99 US for a monthly subscription or $29.99 US for a 12-month subscription. McAfee Mobile Security is also available as part of McAfee All Access and McAfee LiveSafe which provide protection across PCs, Macs, tablets and mobile devices.
