CNET Editors' review
Avast has become a household name when it comes to desktop anti-virus software. Now, you can have the same free, high-end security on you smartphone or tablet. Avast Mobile Security can protect you from dangerous apps, inform you about their permissions, and even help you find your lost phone. It's the best antivirus package for Android.
Avast Mobile Security's biggest perk is real-time protection from viruses whenever it's running. It can also scan any app right after you download it, looking for viruses or invasive permissions. All of these features are incredibly easy to find because it sports one of the most user-friendly interfaces around. It can even filter spam calls away from your phone or help you find your gadget if you lose it.
This app belongs to one of the most popular apps available on Android for a reason. Avast Mobile Security gives you all of the features and performance you'd expect from its name. Though it'd be nice if the app didn't require registration to work, it's not too much of a setback. How could it be when the app combines the functionality of a dozen apps into one awesome package?
