Free Android anti-virus for mobile devices
Posted on 14 August 2013.
Avira Free Android Security reached 2.0 and offers antivirus scanning and removal, as well as retaining the remote lock, wipe and ‘scream’ features available in the original version. The free app works on smartphones and tablets running Android 2.2 and greater.


Given reports that as many as 700,000 apps in the Google Play Store carry malicious code, Avira’s antivirus engines scan all apps upon install to prevent the malware from getting onto your smartphone or tablet in the first place.

The tool also auto-scans the device whenever there are new downloads or updates, and assists with the removal of viruses, worms, Trojans, spyware and other malware.

In addition, Avira retained the ability to remotely locate your Android device via GPS, WiFi or cellular signal from Avira’s Web Console, and to make the device ‘scream’ if it goes missing temporarily (even if the ringer is turned off). Avira also provides the ability to remotely lock or wipe your Android device to protect your data and privacy should your device go missing completely.
