Editors' review

With its straightforwardness and effective scanning capabilities, Antivirus Free from AVG boosts the security of your smartphone or tablet without slowing down your system, proving to be a valuable app. The free version comes with all the essential security features you need.

Pros

Reliable scanner: Antivirus Free's system scanner impresses with its thoroughness. In our tests it scanned a 16GB SD card in less than three minutes, effectively identifying a few low-risk, potentially malware apps downloaded from unsecured sources. What's great about the scanner is that it can not only be set to perform system scans automatically, but also scans downloads on its own, providing real-time protection.

Useful system features: Apart from its scanner, the app also features accessible performance features, such as a task killer, basic battery and data plan managers, and anti-theft and privacy tools and settings that enable you to track your stolen device on a map or remotely wipe your SD card or data by category.

Streamlined: From the straightforward, sleek interface to the extra Performance, Anti-Theft, and Privacy settings and features, this app feels polished and reliable. And because the scanning is automated, it doesn't cost you more taps than it should.

Cons

Lack of scanner settings: While the app lets you change the scanning sensitivity, it offers you only Weekly or Daily auto-scanning options, without the ability to choose the hour when the scanning is performed, so that scanning notifications may bother you while working or playing.

Questionable anti-theft feature: Because the uninstall feature of the app cannot be password protected, if your device is ever stolen, the thief can easily remove the app before you can locate your device or wipe out your data.

Bottom Line

If you're looking for a fast and reliable security app that provides essential protection from viruses and malware, you should definitely try Antivirus Free. This app bundles up all the essential security features you need in a compact interface that's both pleasing and accessible. And the great thing is that you don't have to upgrade to the Pro version unless you need features like SIM and app lockers or App Backup.
