    Does anyone have an opinion on an ‘ideal security app’ (either paid or free) for an Android phone?

    Obviously, this very much depends on what the end users are actually using their phones for, but I’m looking at it from the point of view that many banks that have online banking also have their own app and some are even leaning towards being an ‘app only’ type.

    Any thoughts would be appreciated – thank you.

      These are all free from the Google Play Store and recommended:

      Avast Antivirus & Security

      AVG Security & Virus Cleaner

      Bitdefender Mobile Security & Antivirus

      Kaspersky Security & VPN

      Norton 360 Mobile Security

      securiON OnAV

      Trend Micro Mobile Security & Antivirus

      G DATA Mobile Security Lite

      However, while the price is $0, some apps may contain ads and some may require additional in-app purchases for full functionality, while others will give you a free trial of the product for a limited time before requiring purchase.

        Thanks Matador – appreciate the information and I’ll look into those in more detail.

        I seem to recall seeing a recommendation somewhere (although I cannot find the link again) for ‘Sophos Intercept X’ as being a pretty good app also.  Any views (from anyone) on this particular app.

      I use Microsoft Defender.

      Always create a fresh drive image before making system changes/Windows updates; you may need to start over!
