Virus scanners are just tiny pieces of the security equation for your phone. You should also take into consideration other options, such as parental controls, anti-theft, and blocking text messages and calls. You’ll need to choose an antivirus program that doesn’t put the device under stress and doesn’t use a lot of power.
Bitdefender is a great option because of its excellent protection capabilities confirmed by independent lab tests and our own in-house testing. It also has other options, including a camera that will take an image of anyone trying to hack into your phone. Its free version has pretty good basic protection and recommended you read the subscription pricing is fairly affordable.
AVG is a good choice as well. It has a range of features and a great detection. It’s a well-known brand in the world of antivirus, and it scored top scores in both our hands-on and lab tests for Android malware protection. It has a robust antitheft feature which allows you to locate, remotely remove and lock your phone in the event of theft.
