The Best (and Worst) Antivirus Apps for Android  March 28, 2016 – 07:22 pm

The Best (and Worst) Antivirus Apps for AndroidWith the growth of malware threats on Android, it definitely makes sense to use an antivirus app, but unfortunately, a new study reveals many security apps have miserable detection rates, so you need to choose wisely. Here are the ones that performed best.

AV-Test inspected 41 Android virus scanners against 618 types of malware. Nearly two-thirds of them identified less than 65% of those types of malware—making them unsuitable or unreliable for your mobile security, the firm writes.

The top 7 apps, those with green boxes in the chart above, are: Avast, Dr. Web, F-Secure, Ikarus, Kaspersky, Zoner, and Lookout. "Using one of these apps, " the report says, "means you don't have to worry about your malware protection."

If you have a favorite app that did poorly on the AV-Test report (the full PDF test is here) might not mean it's completely worthless if it has features like remote lock and wipe or data backup, plus there are challenges in testing for active malware threats (the AV-Test used only the most widely known malware families discovered between August and December 2011).
