Antivirus for Android phones and tablets

Antivirus for Android phones and tabletsAntivirus for Android phones and tablets is gaining more support with more and more malware and viruses infecting Android devices.

The best protection is to always download apps from Google Playstore.  Google scans all their apps in the store and does not allow any infected files or apps.  Most instances of virus or malware infection comes from downloading apps, files, etc. from other sources.  Apps that connect to the internet are vulnerable to infection, so even after the apps have been installed, it is necessary to scan and remove any infections.

The recent versions of Android have added security that will scan all incoming files and will regularly re-scan the entire contents looking for infected files or apps.

If you open Settings, then touch Biometrics and Security you’ll see some options such as Google Play Protect and Security update which both will protect your Android device and it is very important that both of these are up to date with the most current versions.

If you have an older Android version and you don’t have the included security options, then it is a good idea to download an Antivirus for Android app from Google Playstore.  Some recommended apps:

  • AVG Antivirus
  • Norton Mobile Security
  • Bitdefender Antivirus

In any case, it is best if you get the person’s permission to record the call and have the permission recorded as part of the call. You may want to record business conversations, or personal conversations for future reference. It may be a good idea to record technical support calls so you can go back and review later.
