The Best Android Antivirus Apps

Many people believe that antivirus software is only needed on Windows laptops or PCs. However, it’s also necessary on Android phones. Hackers are always finding new ways to make your phone vulnerable to malware that can take your identity and cause chaos. They can also turn your phone into an effective spying device for criminals. Google Play is doing its best to get rid of virus-ridden applications, but many are still able to sneak through. A good antivirus app can scan all your devices and alert you to suspicious websites, text messages and Wi-Fi networks. It also has an anti-theft feature that allows users to identify and erase the data of a stolen phone.

Bitdefender Mobile Security is a top-notch security solution. It has received a top rating from AV Comparatives, an independent lab for testing. It does more than just search for malware, however it comes with an App Advisor that warns you about potentially risky apps prior to downloading it, as well as other helpful features like cleaning up junk files, a privacy booster which can boost performance, and an integrated Wi-Fi scanner to help protect your data.

AVG’s free Android antivirus is a top product that goes beyond routine scan of files and apps with a plethora of useful tools, such as an anti-theft tool that can track your device, snap a secret photo of someone who stole it, and erase its data remotely along with a junk files cleaner and performance boost, and an Wi-Fi scanner to make sure you’re not being hacked or overloaded by your wireless provider. It doesn’t have the slickest interface, but it is efficient and has high score on virus detection.
