Android has taken the mobile technology to an advanced level. It has brought revolution in both the tablets and smartphone industry. There are many Android gadgets available in the market. Android is known for its apps that we can get from Google Play. Internet surfing and downloading apps are two common uses of Android. Every Android user loves to use it for games and applications downloading. All this stuff brings the virus in Android gadgets. Due to its open nature, it is more vulnerable to the viruses and malwares and hence it is our duty to take good care of our device. In fact, due to a wide range of applications coming from developers all over the globe, the virus has become a common problem in all Android devices. The virus slows down the device and results in irritation while using it. But everything has a solution and so the viruses have. There are many antivirus apps available to use on Android. In this post, I am going to list the best out of them.
Following is the list of some of the best antivirus for android. They are in no particular order of usefulness.
- AVG Antivirus
This popular antivirus for PC is also on the no.1 place for Android. It’s the best tool to optimize performance of your device. AVG antivirus is a complete suite that helps not only thwarting viruses but also in boosting the performance of your android. The best thing that I like about the AVG is that, it doesn’t only scans the installed apps, but also scans the new apps as well. So it provides real time protection to your Android smartphone or tablet. Any serious user will go for AVG antivirus since it is a well-known name in the security industry.
- Lookout Security
It’s an antivirus cum ‘Find My Phone’ service which has been downloaded by millions of Android users. It also provides the real time protection which gives security to your Android from the newly downloaded apps. It also offers a backup service by which you can take backup of important files. This is recommended app for all Android users.
- Super Security
You can use this app to secure your Android from the new viruses hitting the apps daily. It comes with ‘Heal Virus’ service which helps in killing the virus instead of the app. You can also use it as a recovery app to recover the files that were deleted accidentally by you or because of viruses.
- avast! Mobile Security
This is also well known PC security from viruses. This app is free to use and when you install it, it runs an automatic scan which results in virus removal in any previous apps. It also provides anti-phishing and anti spam services to give you spam free experience of the internet. It does not only save you from viruses but also for any kind of spam links in your incoming SMS.
- Zoner Antivirus
It’s much like AVG or Avast. But it has a unique feature by which you can send encrypted messages to your friends. For this, your friends also need to have this antivirus app installed on their Android. The encrypted messages set full privacy to your messages. This anti virus app comes with free trial offer.
Security is must, before anything else, for your Android gadgets. These apps just require some space on your gadget and in return, they are protecting it from viruses and malwares, which are the biggest enemies of your Android smartphone or tablet.
