Remove Android ransomware for free
Posted on 18.06.2014
avast! Ransomware Removal is a free app that eliminates Android ransomware and decrypts locked and ransomed files.


Simplocker is a new Android virus that encrypts photos, videos, and documents stored on smartphones and tablets, and then demands payment to decrypt them.

“Simplocker blocks access to files stored on mobile devices. Without our free ransomware-removal tool, infected users have to pay $21 to regain access to their personal files,” said Ondrej Vlcek, Chief Operating Officer at AVAST Software. “Even though we are seeing exponential growth in ransomware on mobile devices, most of the threats to encrypt personal files are fakes. Simplocker is the first ransomware that actually encrypts these files, so we developed a free tool for people to restore them.”

Anybody infected by Simplocker or any other type of ransomware can download the removal tool in the Google Play Store, and then installing the app remotely on their infected device.
