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."

"Does it work?"

March 07, 2015  |  By padre1978

 |  Version: 360 Security 3.2.0.1066

Pros

Seemed to be complete package.

Cons

Couldn't tell if it actually worked

Summary

I tried on phone and tablet. When scanning to clear up memory by closing apps, it said so much memory was cleaned. Then I closed the program and opened it again. It again showed how much memory could be gained. I clicked button again with same result. Are these apps starting again on their own or does this really do anytthing? I uninstalled and went back to Lookout.
