Best Antivirus For Android

By 4.10.2023No Comments

The virus scanners are only one small piece of the protection puzzle for your phone. It’s equally important to take a look at other features, such as call/text blocking parental controls, anti-theft and call blocker protection. You’ll need to pick an antivirus that does not put an unnecessary strain on your device and doesn’t require much power.

Bitdefender is a solid choice because it offers excellent security features that have been proven by independent lab tests and our own in-house testing. It offers a variety of other options, including camera traps that capture the picture of anyone who tries to gain access to your phone. The free version provides a decent level of security and the cost of a subscription is affordable.

AVG is another good option, with excellent detection and a variety of features that make it a top selection in our tests. It is a well-known antivirus and scored the highest marks in our lab and hands-on tests for Android malware. It has a strong antitheft feature which allows you to locate, remotely remove and lock your phone in the case of theft.

Quick Heal, another popular app, runs on the Avast engine (Avast acquired AVG in 2016). It’s a comprehensive security package that includes virus scanning, ad blocking junk-cleaning, and a boost in RAM that will enhance the performance of your device. It also comes with the ability to manage passwords as well as dark web monitoring tools.
