Top Antivirus For Android

Hackers are targeting Android users in a masse because of the rise of crypto-mining and ransomware attacks. Cybercriminals have taken millions of dollars, hacked identities and gave away computing power over the past few years. Fortunately, antivirus software for Android can shield your devices from all types of threats. Find an application that is simple to install, simple and has additional features such as tools for optimization of your system such as anti-theft protections, parental controls.

Avast Mobile Security is a well-known name in the world of security on the internet. Its Android version has a full suite of protection with a free version and affordable subscription plans that offer complete protection for your mobile device/s, PC and laptop/tablet/computer. Its malware detection is top-quality with a minimum impact on performance. It includes a call blocker, VPN and junk cleaner. It also has the photo vault WiFi network security, anti-theft, RAM booster and web shield.

Kaspersky Mobile Antivirus is another good option for absolute protection for a reasonable cost. Its malware detection is top-quality with a minimal impact on battery usage and it also includes an ability to block calls, Wear OS support and other features. It’s only downside is that the software isn’t as user-friendly and doesn’t come with an assurance of money back.

AhnLab, a product from South Korea, is another great choice. It scored near-perfectly in my labs and hands-on tests however, it has a less user-friendly interface. It’s not as active on social platforms or community forums as other apps on this listing. It does have high detection rates for Android malware according to AV-Test and AV-Comparatives (but it hasn’t yet been evaluated by either lab since the year 2015).
