Does anyone know a good Av for Mobiles , something along the lines of malwarebytes that i wont have to buy.
I got a email from virgin media uk.

Saying my loan has been authorised , and stupid me clicked the attached file.
Something did load but looked like either a corrupted pdf or a script.
No nafarius shit occoured yet i hope , well none I've noted.

I had Avast on it at the time but Avast clearly are blind to some stuff given CCleaner news.

I wasn't even a customer ffs , anyway please send help.

Used AVG on both my Motorola and now my Galaxy S7. It's free and well, it seems to work, I've used it for years.

i never used any antivirus on any of my phone and never got anything ...

some of my friend used AVG/Avast and various other one and got issues, due to "virus" or more classically due to "non official apps" or "incorrect behavior" or due to the Antivirus itself ... after all, they are all bloatware that hog the ressources
i was tempted to use Sophos and Avast for the blacklist function but most handset come in standard with it (literally include with stock Android ) under Android Virus are quite rare, it's more scripting (Stagefright exploit and the other alike are not virus per se )

to me, it's more like Antivirus developer are playing on the fear the people have about "virus" on android to get their apps installed (paid or not, since most "free" have paid option to unlock some useless options and sometime "full efficiency" )

funnily enough, now i don't even use an antivirus on my main rig ... (tho i still run a malwarebyte scan from time to time, but nothing come out unusual :laugh: )

Whether you need anti-virus on your phone is completely dependent on what kind of websites you visit. If you only visit popular safe sites you likely don't need anti-virus. That said, due to the popularity of mobile and it's target audience it is likely that we will see an increase in malware and viruses. That's just what happens for every popular platform.

Ok thanks for the help I found malware bytes mobile on play ,it says im good.
Av is a personal choice but please don't think it unnecessarily required or tell others that.


I visit tech sites not pron and I opened a virgin media email not "bigbaps check me pics"(many reside in my spam folder ;/)
It doesn't hurt to be secure.
And others less wise than you might be better off with it, then without it ,my mum for example ,my cousin's ,their kids ,shit I've cleaned limewire off at least 50 PC's over the years.

avast! isn't "blind". The attack on CCleaner was in process before they purchased Piriform. You can't blame it on them, they aren't psychic you know, no one could have predicted that... And the way they handled it was utmost professional in my opinion. I see no reason ditching it for given reasons.

In general, there are a lot of decent and free options for Android. avast! if you want lots of features, BitDefender if you want least features, just good basic protection that works out of the box. DrWeb Light is also pretty good with nice interface and no annoying ads. There are also Panda Free, SOPHOS, Trend Micro and Symantec/Norton that do a good job. Stay away from countless no-name antiviruses, I wouldn't trust them even if you paid me. Stick with brands that are well recognized on desktops as well and you should be fine.

Also, note that Google itself has now rolled out protection within their store. Every app is scanned by their systems when you install it. PlayProtect also checks ALL your installed Android apps once a week. So, that's also a layer in between. I think Google uses system similar to VirusTotal, a cloud based system consisting of several scanners and their own system. I think even Android should be well covered now.

I agree , i still have Avast on , the news just caused a bit of doubt in me given how that email opened at the time.

In my experience : Bitdefender Free was good, but on Android is generally a waste of recourses IMO. I just install->scan->uninstall. I don't keep it constantly.

I'm using Kaspersky Internet Security - no complaints here. Not that I've put it to the test, but it runs well and hasn't casued any issues. It's not free, per se, but the license on my desktop covers 3 devices (PC/phone/tablet). It's already paid for, so I figured I might as well put it to use. :)

You can't factually make this claim. Within one month of the buyout, while Piriform still had its own people in place, as most mergers are, Piriform announced the breach.

I don't see a problem here, and it certainly can't be pinned on Avast!

Google now uses its own solution to scan their stuff at install point and now also checks all your installed apps daily. I don't know how effective it is, but I think it's based on VirusTotal and their own system, so it should be very reliable. I now don't use anything since they do daily scans, but when they were still weekly, I had AV.

I used Avast free but found the adds annoying and it constantly asked to scan wi-fi connections even though it had already done so multiple times (like home & work). Switched to bitdefender free and works fine, less annoying, and less battery usage.

Sounds like the attachment was a ransomware virus - lucky you didn't open attachment on Pc
Never skimp on a antivirus they don't even cost much for yearly license not worth the risks

Recommend Eset or Kaspersky Antivirus (New Free version available )
ESET Mobile Security is R157 (11$)

Not a Fan of AVG,Avast,Avira Free
