Mobile Security Best free Android security suite.
By far our favourite option, Sophos Mobile Security is free for personal use, with no ads or reduced functionality. Even better, in the 14 tests since 2014, Sophos has picked up 100% of malware in the AV-Test security app comparisons. Sophos Mobile Security scans apps on install for any malicious content, and can perform on-demand or scheduled scans of a device’s contents. It also has a comprehensive theft protection system, which includes remote locks, wipes, location tracking and SIM change detection. The app also protects from other threats, including web filtering and URL checks, spam call and SMS blocking and insecure Wi-Fi monitoring. It includes a built-in Authenticator service and password manager, can protect apps with a password, PIN or fingerprint, and lists apps that could access personal data.
It’s quite easy to get up and running for beginners, but also offers loads of advanced options. Effect on battery life and performance is minimal, as it can be set to only scan when charging.
