APC Australia - - Superguide Security On Android -

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.
