Editors' Review


Though it's freeware, Sophos Security And Antivirus packs up all the security features you need for your smartphone in an appealing interface, offering the same level of protection that many paid apps do. This is a great security suite.


Feature-packed: Sophos Security And Antivirus has it all, from a speedy scanner that can handle 3,436 files in around one minute, to a handy Privacy Advisor for quick app management, to Loss & Theft and Spam Protection, two features which are not offered for free but sold by many popular security apps. What's more, the app features a Security Advisor for boosting general device security and App Protection for password-protecting apps, something that many paid antivirus apps lack.

Beautifully straightforward: The appealing main screen enables you to quickly perform all the essential security operations available, from scanning, checking app permissions, password-protecting apps, and taking preventing measures against spam, loss, and theft. While some sub-screens may seem a bit crowded with information, the app remains remarkably direct and streamlined, whether used on a smartphone or tablet.

Lightweight: In spite of its many features and wealth of options and settings, this app manages to remain light in terms of both ease of use and system performance.


Loss & Theft not available on tablets: This feature and Spam Protection require phone functionality.

Resource hungry: On the whole the app offers good performance, but there are times when it seems to tax the processor and eat more memory than usual, causing minor, infrequent freezes that last no more than a second or two.

Bottom Line

Sophos Security And Antivirus looks like one of the most complete freeware security suites for Android. You'll be impressed by its streamlined interface, wealth of features, and overall reliability and functionality. More people should know about this excellent app.
