Bitdefender Mobile Security for Android

Editors' Review


The free version of Bitdefender's Mobile Security app keeps your Android device safe with a Malware Scanner, Application Audit, and Remote Geolocation. It shares an interface and basic features with a Premium version that adds a secure Web browser and additional privacy and anti-theft measures. The free app downloads with the Premium app's features activated during a trial period. However, we tried only those features available in the free version. Bitdefender Mobile Security's free app runs in Android 2.2 and above; we ran it in Android 4.3.

Bitdefender Mobile Security installed quickly and easily. We verified our device's name and our account information, and opened a home screen displaying our device's status and buttons for the Malware Scanner, Privacy Advisor, Web Security, and Anti-Theft tools. We opened the Malware Scanner, which includes an Autopilot feature that automatically scans new apps. You can disable it, if necessary. Our initial scan took about 20 seconds and found one piece of suspected malware. Whatever real threat it posed, we didn't need it, so out it went. We also opened the Global Settings and set an Anti-Theft PIN. The Event Viewer logs scan results in plain English sentences. Bitdefender's cloud-based definitions and scanning (or pre-scanning) technology supposedly reduces battery drain. All we know is that it never slowed us down.

Android security apps have come a long way in a short time, but so have the malware, spyware, and "worse"-ware (as in the more you rely on your phone or tablet, the worse off you'll be when, not if, trouble finds you). Bitdefender Mobile Security's free app is free, as in "no cost." Any excuses?
