The Best Android Antivirus Apps

Many people think of antivirus software as something that they only need on Windows PCs and laptops, but you should really have it on your Android phone as well. Hackers are always coming up with new methods to get your phone infected with malware that could take your identity and cause chaos. They could also transform your phone into a spying device for criminals. Google Play is doing its best to eliminate virus-ridden applications, but many still slip through. A reputable antivirus application will scan your entire device, alerting you to suspicious websites, texts and Wi-Fi networks. It also has an anti-theft feature that allows you to locate and wipe information from a stolen device.

Bitdefender Mobile Security offers top-notch security features, earning full marks in the latest AV-Test review and earning a high score from AV-Comparatives (the other major independent test lab). It’s not just a malware scanner. It also includes an App Advisor which warns you about potentially dangerous applications before you install them.

AVG’s free Android antivirus is a high-quality product that goes beyond routine scanning of files and apps with a wealth of other nifty tools such as an anti-theft system which can locate your device, capture the secret photograph of someone who has stolen it and erase its data remotely, a junk file cleaner and performance boost, and a Wi-Fi scanner that will ensure that you’re not being hacked, or overloaded by your wireless provider. It’s not the smoothest interface, but it’s effective and has top security scores for detecting viruses.
