Top Antivirus For Android

Hackers are targeting Android users in a flurry because of the rise of crypto-mining and ransomware attacks. Millions of dollars have been taken and identities hacked, as well as computing power given away to cybercriminals in the last few years alone. Fortunately, an antivirus program for Android can guard your devices from all sorts of threats. Look for an application that is simple, intuitive and easy to install, and includes additional features like security tools for system optimization, theft protection, and parental controls.

Avast Mobile Security has a high-profile reputation 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 protection is superb with little impact on performance. It also has a call blocker, VPN, junk cleaner and photo vault, Wi-Fi network security RAM increase, anti-theft, web security and more.

Kaspersky Mobile Antivirus is another good option for absolute protection at a reasonable price. Its malware-detection capabilities work well with minimal battery drain. It also comes with the ability to block calls, Wear OS support, and other additional features. It’s only downside is that the software isn’t as user-friendly and doesn’t have a an assurance of money back.

AhnLab from South Korea is another strong choice, with a near-perfect score in my lab tests and tests in hands-on mode but a somewhat less intuitive interface for the app. It’s not as active on social media and community forums as the other apps on this list. According to AV Test and AV Comparatives it has high detection rates for Android malware.
