Top Antivirus For Android

Hackers are targeting Android users in a masse because of the rise of ransomware and crypto-mining attacks. Millions of dollars were stolen and identities compromised, as well as computing power lent to cybercriminals over the last few years. A reliable antivirus program for Android can protect your system from all kinds of threats. Look for an application that is simple to install, simple and includes additional features like system optimization tools such as anti-theft protections, parental controls.

Avast Mobile Security is a well-known brand in the field of internet security. 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-notch with minimal impact on performance. It also has a call blocker, VPN, junk cleaner, photo vault, WiFi network security RAM boost, anti-theft, web shield and other features.

Kaspersky Mobile Antivirus is another excellent choice for complete security at a low cost. Its malware detection functions well with a minimal drain on battery. It also comes with a call blocking feature, Wear OS support, as well as other extras. The only downside is that it’s not 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 hands-on tests however it has a less user-friendly interface. It’s also not as active on social media or community forums as some of the other apps on this list. It does have high detection rates for Android malware, according to AV-Test and AV-Comparatives (but it hasn’t been evaluated by either lab since the year 2015).
