About the Agent

Hosted Mobile Security Agent, the app that communicates with HMS is downloaded from Google Play (Android) or Apple App Store (iOS) during device enrollment. Whenever a new version of the app is available, you will receive a notification from your device to update the app. The notification could vary depending on the configuration you have chosen on your device. Refer to your device's documentation for additional details.

The following features are available only for Android agents. However, administrators may choose to enable or disable certain features.

  • App Scanner: checks for malicious files and apps on the device.

  • Web Security: blocks access to potentially unsafe websites.


To ensure maximum protection and optimum performance, Trend Micro recommends removing other mobile security products before installation.
