Today’s the smart phones is the more valuable than anything. The younger’s to older are having fond of using smart phones but on other hand side we have to keep the safety of our phones and for that we use many of lock system , antivirus etc. In such type of situation the antivirus is the best way to protect your phone from different type of phone virus. Today we are having a very sensational topic for the Top Android Antivirus and Security Apps.
It’s no wonder, then, that there are so many Android antivirus and security apps designed to protect your mobile devices from the ever-incessant perils out there trying to breach your Smartphone, and therefore your privacy and your life.
Android is the most widely-used operating system in the world, and that means having the best security apps and antivirus tools for Android installed on your device is essential, as Google's OS is often targeted by different malware due to its popularity.
Whatever software you use with your Android phone or tablet, you’d be wise to have an antivirus or a security app installed on your device. In this article, we’re going to highlight of the best antivirus tools for Android is most of which are completely free apps to download.
Many of them do much more than run automatic scans, and they all actively try to prevent malicious web pages and files from being opened or downloaded in the first place.
The state of anti-virus software on Android doesn’t make the situation better. Objective tests have been limited so far, and those conducted suggest that many security apps don’t provide much security at all. There are, however, a few early contenders that have stood out from the crowd.
Anti theft apps, of course, can’t actually prevent somebody from stealing your phone, or you from losing it. But what they can do is allow you to track your property, or, if it comes to this, lock it down or wipe it remotely, thereby thwarting any attempts to access and exploit your data. Some apps go so far as allowing you to completely disable or remove specific apps, such as, say, your banking and credit card apps, remotely.
Another way smartphone thieves try to claim your data, and your device itself, is by replacing the SIM card. Many antivirus-security apps provide ways to thwart this, by either, upon detecting a SIM card change, locking the device, or by sending you the new phone number associated with the SIM card, thereby allowing you to send the coded messages required to launch anti theft measures to protect or wipe your data.
Normally, when compiling a roundup of products like this, early in the prep work I would install all these products and run them through a series of performance and effectiveness benchmark tests.
In this case, though, several third-party analysis and testing firms, including AV-Test, AV-Comparatives, MRG-Effitas, and others have already gone to great lengths to test these products. So, in addition to my testing and timing data.
I also analyzed the overall usability of the user interfaces. What most of these products have in common, even those that didn’t make this list’s cut, is that they all work quite well.
Unless otherwise noted in a product’s specific review below, all the products in this list, then, have passed performance tests, such as locating and neutralizing known threats, blocking malicious sites and links, and so on, with the highest percentages of accuracy among their peers.
Sometimes, though, like with Norton Security and Antivirus, you must upgrade to the paid version to get the entire set of the top, most obvious and desired features. With the Norton product, for instance, you must upgrade to Norton Mobile Security to get the ability to scan and block malicious websites.
In most cases, all these products free versions contain the basic antivirus protection you’d expect; I’ll let you know if and when they don’t.
If it’s on this List
Note that if an app has made it onto this list, I consider it a strong candidate for protecting your Android phone. The order, though, is alphabetical and has nothing to do with one product being better than the other. In other words, this list is not a hierarchy from best to worst or vice versa.
That said, let’s get started.
- Online dashboard for manage security features
- Excellent malware protection
- Protect up to 20 devices
- Parental control, password management, VPN security
- Password manager could be more robust
- Requires several separate installations
Which type version you choose, Kaspersky is a full-featured, no-nonsense antivirus-security app that leaves little to be desired?
Kaspersky Internet Security for Android, a robust feature set = Free
Kaspersky Total Security, one device for one year for $14.95; three devices for one year for $24.95. There’s also multiplatform version that supports up to 20 Windows.
The free Kaspersky version is one of the most robust I’ve seen and may be all you really need to protect your Android smart phone. Not only does it deliver powerful mobile antivirus and malware protection, but it also scans for dangerous apps and links.
What does come with the free version is full-featured anti theft protection, including the ability to lock your phone or wipe it remotely if it’s stolen or lost. What’s missing in the free version, though, is the ability to set up automated scans for malware, anti-phishing protection for sites and SMS links, and a confidentiality feature that allows you to lock your apps with a code, as well as hide calls and texts from unauthorized users on your device.
There’s also a Kaspersky Safe Kids option that filters content and monitors social media. And you can use the app to track your child’s location on his or her smartphone.
AVAST MOBILE SECURITY
- Free version includes firewall
- Anti theft, and call blocking
- App locking
- VPN in premium version
- Ads in free version
The free version should be robust enough for most users, and stepping up to the premium version adds VPN and other significant features.
- Avast Mobile Security, comes with just about everything = free
- Avast Mobile Security Pro, adds VPN, password management, and a few other features; one license is Rs.2600, three is Rs.3200, and five is Rs.5500,
A giant in the antivirus business, Avast products are good performance and feature sets. The Avast Mobile Security free version comes with just about everything you need to keep your phone completely secure and safe.
This includes spam blocking, viruses and malware detection and removal, malicious app detection and virus removal, malicious web pages and links detection, Wi-Fi network security screening, anti theft protection (including taking a picture and audio of the thief with the Pro version), storage cleanup, MEMORY boost, battery consumption controls, and much more features .
Stepping up to the Pro version gets you, again, snapshots and audio of a potential thief, register and lock on SIM card change, VPN, protecting apps and media via PIN codes, and password management features .
Avast Antivirus also monitors your usage to see what apps you use most of the time, determines which apps are better off used on a Wi-Fi (as opposed to phone data network) connection, and helps you determine how specific apps access specific aspects of your phone, such as, say, contacts, email, messages, and so on.
- Strong anti-phishing support
- Checks for app data leakage
- Ransom ware protection
- Inexpensive 10 license version available
- Ads in free version
For households and businesses with many devices, McAfee AntiVirus Plus supports Android, Windows, macOS, and iOS devices.
McAfee Total Protection, come in three versions, one, five, and 10 licenses for Android, Windows, macOS, and iOS devices, for $29.99, $39.99, and $44.99 per year, respectively.
In addition to antivirus protection, the free version has extensive anti theft and device locator features, including the ability to snap a picture of the thief or somebody else trying to breach your smartphone. A huge and trusted name in antivirus and security, McAfee’s offerings, whether you choose the standalone free Android version or the multi platform Total Protection product, keep your devices protected.
However, to get the ability to check for malicious sites, the app lock feature, Wi-Fi network protection, eliminate ads, and a media back up feature, you must step up to the Pro version, which runs $79.99, or $30 more than the multi platform 10 device Total Protection package. Though you do get support for up to 10 Android devices with the Pro Android package.
While this is an excellent product, McAfee should take another look at its pricing logistics. In addition, during installation, somehow I managed to lock my McAfee online account before I finished setting it up, which added several frustrating steps to getting Anti Theft and other features that depended on my account working.
- Lock your phone remotely
- Virus protection guarantee
- Parental controls
- Built-in firewall
- Terrific antivirus and malware detection and removal
- Online backup
- Requires upgrade for malicious site protection
Tons of features, including online backup, VPN, many security features, parental controls, and more, make Norton 360 a stalwart in antivirus and security products.
Norton Mobile Security, provides extensive security, including anti theft and call blocking = free for 30 days then $29.99 (on sale for half that as I wrote this).
Norton 360, comes in Standard and Deluxe ($79.99 MSRP / $49.99 retail, $99.99 MSRP / $59.99 retail), with the primary difference being that the Deluxe product supports up to five Android, Windows, macOS, or iOS devices. Also comes with 50GB of online backup space.
Norton 360 with LifeLock Select, comes with everything in the previous product plus LifeLock Identity Theft protection and 100GB of backup space, for $149.99 MSRP / $99.99 retail.
Certainly one of the first and probably the most well-known, Norton antivirus and security products have been around a long time and they work exceptionally well. While there is no “free” product, per se, the company does offer a 30 day trial of its Norton Mobile Security, or you can get it in a five-device bundle in Norton 360 Deluxe (which I’ve been using without issue for several years).
In addition to antivirus protection you get the following features:
- LifeLock Features
- US-based identity restoration
- Lost wallet protection
- Million Dollar Protection Package
- Credit monitoring
- SSN monitoring
- Data breach notifications
- Online threat protection
- Cloud backup
- Smart Firewall
- Password manager
- Virus protection guarantee
- Parental controls
Granted, not everybody needs all this, and to get it all you must pay from $100 to $150 per year. Norton also promises that your devices will stay virus free or refund your money.
In addition to these four products, there are numerous others available, and settling on these wasn’t easy. Many of them are free. But, if you’re like me, with a household full of Android, Windows, and iOS devices, you’re far better off choosing one of the mega-bundles that provide multi-platform support.
Be careful, though, even the best of these skimp on Apple device support. The good news is that macOS and iOS are closed architectures and therefore not so easily exploited, nor do they present nearly as large, jucy a target as do Android devices.
In any case, be sure to check that the bundle you choose comes with the desired features on the platforms you use.
