lol they do like to put the fear of god into us, it seems the AV software makers are the only ones who seem to think there is a major threat to our smartphones via malware and viruses .
I haven't had my android phone long but when I got it the first thing I did was look into security for it, I read endless reports and articles online from various sources and websites , and all but one said antivirus software was not necessary for android devices.
But in saying that alot of antivirus apps for android have built in anti theft which ( if it actually works and is set up correctly ) could prove very useful. Which leads me to my question in 'Best Free Security and Privacy for Android' guide on the site it mentions Antivirus Free - Lookout and avast! Mobile Security which is the best of the 2 ? any opinions would be great. I already have the Prey app because I already used it on my laptop so it made sense to me to install it on my phone too, but I also would like a sort off back-up anti-theft app with anti-virus just to be on the save side.
Any opinions, thoughts or advice would be greatly received, thank-you.
