Antivirus mobile software reviews

We compare and review 20 mobile malware solutions designed to keep Android devices secure.

Last updated: 24th April 2015

Mobile malware is not only on the increase, it's becoming more sophisticated. As sales of mobile devices continue to climb, hackers and malware makers are focusing their efforts on mobile malware, with spyware being particularly prevalent. The good news is that mobile security software generally does a good job, but that's no reason to be complacent.

Independent security test lab AV-Test Institute tested Android-based security programs for smartphones and tablets. Testing focused on realistic test scenarios, including the areas of protection, usability and features.

All the programs we tested are available for download from the Google Play store. Note that although some may appear to be free or low-cost, they may require in-app purchases.
