Another very useful function that this app can offer you is the ability to protect specific apps with a password. So, if you have some sensitive data in your notes, messages or your e-mail app, you can just shield them with a password and people can still use your phone, without being able to access anything you don’t want them to.

TrustGo Antivirus And Mobile Security

Another completely free, very efficient antivirus for Android. It has all the features that you need in an antivirus app such as threat scan and real-time protection, but aside from that it also has a find-my-phone feature (useful if you ever happen to misplace your phone) as well as a data backup, which we cannot say enough good things about. Backing up your data is one of the most efficient ways to keep it safe, and this app has got you completely covered there. For the price of absolutely nothing you can’t get much better than TrustGo, so we recommend you give it a shot.

AVG Antivirus Security

Now here’s an app from a trustworthy antivirus company that’s already well-known in the realm of PC. A lot of people swear by AVG’s free version on personal computers, as it delivers solid protection and pretty impressive malware detection rates. The same is true for its Android version that possesses an average rating of 4.4 and has been downloaded over 100 million times. AVG features a task killer, remote data wiping (if your device is ever stolen, you can simply wipe all of the data remotely using your PC) and anti-theft features. There’s also battery, storage and data usage monitoring, which is a pretty cool bonus to all of the integral features every antivirus app should have. AVG has a very slick, easy to use and intuitive interface that you’ll master in no time at all, and premium users can even use AVG’s app-locking and call blocking features.

BitDefender Antivirus Free


If you’re looking for a light-weight, no-nonsense antivirus app that you won’t even notice after you install it, BitDefender Antivirus is for you. This app offers real-time protection and scanning – that’s it. And while that might make it look a bit reduced compared to some of the other apps on this list, the bottom line is that this app gets the job done exactly the way it should, precisely because the developers didn’t have to devote their attention to a lot of extra features. Scans are as simple as they can get and they’re pretty fast, while the real-time protection secures your device from any further contamination.

This was one of the first antivirus apps you could get on Android, and it’s still the go-to application for many people that want to protect themselves from malware. Apart from its efficient anti-virus protection it also has a few other cool features, such as app locking and fingerprint scanning. Additionally, it’ll also take pictures with your front camera when someone tries to access an app that you’ve locked, so you’ll know exactly who’s trying to snoop around your phone.

Maybe you’ve got an older device and are afraid that a feature-heavy antivirus app will significantly slow down your phone. If that’s the case, you might want to try out Malwarebytes Anti-Malware. It’s a rather simple app that does what it’s designed to do and not much else, which means it won’t go heavy on your phone’s CPU or RAM.
