The Best Antivirus For Android Phones Free Download

 

#1. ESET Mobile Security and Antivirus

Best Antivirus For Android Phones Free Download

The first best Antivirus for Android phones free download that I tried was Eset mobile security and antivirus. Eset is a free app that you can download on Play Store. I think this app is very simple and easy to operate. In the homepage, you'll see 6 main features of this app. But, you can only access 3 features (Antivirus, Anti-Theft, and Security Report) in free version.

So, if you want to access all of them, you should subscribe the premium version, it mean you have to pay $14 a year. I think it's not expensive if you see the benefits.

Here are the benefits if you Subscribe to their premium version:

  • Remotely lock your device if it goes missing
  • Track your missing device online
  • Take photos of the finder
  • Browse the internet more safely
  • See all app permissions in one place
  • Last known location before battery dies
  • Threat list auto-update
  • SMS and call filter

But if you don't want to buy it, I think the free version is enough to protect your phone from malicious viruses.

This is the protection result which has been done by AV-Test.org.

For the first time you install it, you'll get 30 days free. I think isn't trial version because you can access all features, it's different from the other Premium Antivirus that lock some features in the free version.

After your 30 days subscription has ended and you want to continue your subscription, you should pay about $15 a year. I think it isn't expensive if you look at the features they offer.
