Antivirus & Mobile Security

Completely free and with a few stand-out features to boot, you shouldn't overlook the simply-titled Antivirus & Mobile Security. As well as the usual anti-virus scanning, this also includes some safe-browsing options, among them encryption for things you type into your browser. One of our favorite bonus features here is Candid Camera Thief ID, which takes selfies of the thief if your phone gets stolen - though using Android Device Manager should be your first port of call if your device gets stolen.

Kaspersky Internet Security

The PC version of Kaspersky is regularly showered with accolades and often voted the best internet security suite you can get.

Malwarebytes Anti-Malware

Malwarebytes built its reputation as one of the most lightweight PC protection tools around. The free Android version is a chip off the old block, and also focuses on ease-of-use rather than tons of features. It offers anti-malware protection, a privacy manager, and also scans apps that are behaving suspiciously. The developers have also stayed ahead of the curve by integrating Malwarebytes with Android Device Manager - the remote tracking/anti-theft Android feature that effectively negates such features on many Android antivirus suites.
