The Best Android Antivirus Apps

Many people think of antivirus software as something they only use on Windows laptops and PCs, however, you need it on your Android phone, too. Hackers are always coming up with new ways to attack your device with malware which could take your identity, create destruction on your phone and even turn it into a remote spying tool for criminals. Google Play is doing its best to get rid of viruses, but a lot of applications are still able to sneak through. An antivirus program that is reliable can scan your entire device, alerting you to suspicious websites, messages and Wi-Fi networks. It also has an anti-theft option that allows users to identify and erase information from a stolen device.

Bitdefender Mobile Security offers top-notch security features, earning full marks in the latest AV-Test roundup and receiving a high score from the AV-Comparatives (the other major independent lab for testing). It’s more than just a look for malware, however you also get an App Advisor that warns you about risky apps prior to downloading it, as well as other useful features like a junk file cleaner as well as a privacy booster that will improve performance, and a Wi-Fi scanner to protect your data.

AVG’s free Android antivirus is a premium product that goes beyond the scanning of apps and files. It also includes numerous other useful tools such as an anti-theft tool which allows you to identify a device, take photos of the person who stole it, and remotely wipe its data, a junk-file cleaner, a performance boost, and a WiFi scanner that assures you that you aren’t being attacked by your wireless provider or overloaded. It’s not the most user-friendly interface, but it is effective and has great antivirus detection scores.
