Android Malware Protection Tips

Android MalwareA Smartphone or a Tablet that is connected to the internet need protection against Malware and other malicious codes and apps. An Android phone is also a computer and you should treat it the same way as you treat your PC. Hackers and cyber criminals are working hard to find ways to access peoples Smartphones, and if your Malware protection is too weak, you could face big problems, both financial and personal. Don’t let that happen and make sure your Android phone is protected.

Browsing the internet is not risk free, but with common sense you can save yourself from many problems. Don’t open unknown emails or download apps from companies you never heard of or can’t find any information about. You don’t even have to download anything to get problems, so called drive-by-downloads are hiding in websites scripts and if you visit a malicious website, it can install Malware behind your back. That’s why a good Malware protection is very important.

Free Android Malware Protection Apps!

AVG AntiVirus Free for Android is a very good security app. It’s got many premium features that other companies charge money for, but with AVG is totally free. The app scanner checks your apps and makes sure no Malware has infected your Android device. The file scanner checks your device for viruses and makes sure your personal stuff such as contacts, text messages, bookmarks and favorite apps are kept safe. If you need a good Malware protection and your budget is tight, AVG AntiVirus Free for Android is a good choice.

Avast Free Mobile Security is also a good security app. It scans your Android device for Malware and viruses and make sure no threats can access your device. It got an Anti-Theft component, so you can monitor your device if it get’s stolen or you lost it and can’t find it. Avast Free Mobile Security is rated 4.7 of 5 stars in Google Play store and it’s not a bad idea to use this app. I am running AVG on my Android phone right now, but Avast is absolutely not a bad choice.

BetterGuard Mobile Premium Privacy Protection!

BetterGuard Mobile is developed by RPower Media. BetterGuard Mobile provides a very strong mobile privacy protection which helps you to stop unwanted apps from accessing your personal information or showing annoying ads on the screen. Your Android device is packed with personal information and many companies want access to your contact lists, Facebook contacts and other list so they can send invitations to your friends. You don’t want other people using your contacts to send out annoying messages to your friends and colleagues.

BetterGuard Mobile monitors and scan your apps, to find out exactly what each app on your Android device are doing. Some companies and developers are using their app to access your phone number without you knowing it, and some has recorded your email address. If you don’t protect your privacy, you could get phone calls and emails you never asked for, and if an app can access your privacy this easy, other more devious app developers can cause a lot of problems.

BetterGuard Mobile is not a Malware protection app, but if you are using it with AVG or Avast, you have a very strong protection. Apps can seem safe and free from Malware and an antimalware app like AVG can’t do anything about apps that is virus free. But with BetterGuard Mobile, you can stop apps from accessing your private information. Check out BetterGuard Mobile here.

    We people lives in a myth that there won’t be many virus program created for our android device as it is a new operating system in the market. Its not the truth, Malware programmer are too fast in developing new virus program for stealing data from your device if it is not secure with some security apps like avg antivirus/avast free mibile security. . thanks for sharing these protection tips.
