AVG Antivirus & Anti Theft FREE
If you’re using an Android phone and especially if you plan on experimenting with non Play Store applications you are going to need antivirus protection. AVG Antivirus offers fairly decent coverage here providing your phone has not been rooted. AVG provides automatic scanning of newly installed applications, supports scheduled scans monitors your devices performance and provides a few tools to improve performance.
AVG Antivirus FREE also monitors your phones settings for security threats and alerts you when it finds settings you should be aware of. This free application also offers optional anti theft protection, allowing you to find your lost phone via gps, lock it and unlock it remotely and more.
AVG also offers full mobile security packages which will cost you around $10 from the play store, although it is not the greatest antivirus on the market, and not even the best free antivirus, its still a great starter package to give your phone basic protection against viruses and malware.
If you are using a ‘rooted’ Android device, I suggest using Avast Antivirus.
