The best antivirus soft­ware for Android

What is the best secu­rity product to use with Android? AV-Test has been testing the most com­monly used antivirus software.

The inde­pen­dent AV-Test research centre AV-TEST has tested 15 secu­rity prod­ucts for Android. The prod­ucts tested were always the latest ver­sions cur­rently avail­able to the gen­eral public. The results can be found here.

Please note how­ever that tests like these should always be treated with cau­tion. Much more impor­tant than your choice of soft­ware is to con­tin­u­ously keep it up-to-date with auto­mated updates, so that you are always pro­tected against the latest risks, too! And of course that you have installed a secu­rity product on your device at all!

One more basic piece of infor­ma­tion on antivirus soft­ware for smart­phones and tablets: It is vital that you install antivirus soft­ware on your Android device, although you don’t cur­rently need this for iOS devices such as iPhones or iPads.
