Editors' Review

360 Security for Android emphasizes anti-theft, memory boosting, and virus protection. Since 360 Security for Android is free, the question of whether or not to protect your device is easy to answer.

Pros

Autostart Manager: New to version 3.1.0, the Autostart Manager keeps background apps from running automatically. You save on memory, battery, and bandwidth.

Antivirus engine: Scanning with regularly updated definitions protects your device from viruses, malware, adware, and emerging threats.

Extras: In addition to direct threats, 360 Security for Android also targets emerging mobile security threats, like identity theft and scams. Useful extras, like the Memory Booster, Phone Cleaner, Data Monitor, and Mobile Data Firewall, help 360 Security for Android earn its keep.

Call & SMS Filter: A customizable call blocker can filter out unwanted calls and messages.

Cons

Needed or not: Experts disagree over Android's vulnerability to viruses and malware, and apps like 360 Security for Android use up resources.

Bottom Line

Despite a growing emphasis on some welcome extras, the case for Android security apps, like 360 Security for Android, still boils down to "better safe than sorry."

"it is constantly transmitting data do not use"

Pros

none do not trust

Cons

I evaluated with SPYWARN which shows what apps are transmitting data and then gives you a final score. I typically am in the 6 or 7 range, very unlikely spyware is installed. After installing 360 Security it jumped to 46, highly likely spyware installed. It showed up by name in the graphs as transmitting data at a higher rate than any dormant app on my phone. I got rid of it.
