Security apps are a necessity in the modern age we live in. Not sure which app you should download? Here’s our roundup of 5 highly-rated Android anti-virus apps you can use to protect your phone.

1. Bitdefender Antivirus Free

Bitdefender is one of the most highly rated security apps out there. Google user Chris Zellmer loves how un-invasive the app is:

“Reliable, easy to use and goes on without bugging me. I love the very low impact on performance as well. So far, so good.”

2. Avast Security

Another well-known and effective security app is Avast. Google user Abigail Wooster loves all the features the Avast app has:

“This is the best Antivirus App ever! It has so many features including locking and wiping your phone remotely if it gets stolen so people can’t get into your phone and buy things and change passwords through your email. I feel like my phone is safer and I feel more secure knowing that no one will get any of my information if it is stolen.”

3. CM Security Master

Did you know security apps are often equipped with a camera feature that snaps a photo of hackers? Google user Hope Lanier loves how the CM Security Master app gives her important hacker info:

“Detected an intruder attempting to unlock device and captured a photo allowing me to see the intruder! Love the instant notification after 3 failed password attempts.”

4. Norton Security & Antivirus

Although Norton is not free, this anonymous Google user says paying for quality security is worth it:

“This is the best U.S.-based antivirus company out there! We live in the digital age wherein the technology we use is often a critical component to our professional and personal lives, but most people think ‘free AV software’ is perfectly fine to keep them safe. They are dead wrong! Second to that… if you do some research, you’ll find that a lot of the “top rated” AV companies are based outside the US. Did you know they pay PC Mag and others to give them those ratings? Just go with Norton!”

5. Lookout Security & Antivirus

Last but not least, we have Lookout Security & Antivirus. Google user Paul Crimmins says the paid and free versions of Lookout are both equally good:

“Top of the line Mobile Security. No battery drain issues. Warning for malicious behavior and websites works. I paid for this for years but when I switched to T-Mobile l’m preloaded with fully loaded paid version and it’s free. l’m very happy with this application and I trust Lookout.”

If you own a cell phone, you probably use it on a daily basis. That means you are exposing yourself daily to malware, viruses, spyware, and other security threats. This is particularly dangerous if you store a lot of personal information on your phone, which most users do.

Because “Android is the most widely-used operating system in the world,” says techradarpro.com, “…having the best security apps and antivirus tools for Android installed on your device is essential, as Google’s OS is often targeted by malware due to its popularity.”
