Editors' Review

The Tencent Security & AntiVirus Free app offers a simple collection of security tools designed to keep your phone safe and trouble-free. While it lacks a few useful tools found in other security apps, it's hard to beat its price: Free.

Pros

Scans: You can initiate a manual scan of just your apps or the entire contents of your phone, including an SD card. The app offers no obvious way to schedule scans, however, and it doesn't automatically scan new and updated apps when you download them.

Companion security and privacy tools: Along with malware detection, Tencent comes with tools to monitor your web browsing and to make backups.

Free: All of Tencent's security tools are free to use -- no ads and no annual subscription.

Top scores on malware detection: Tencent earned perfect scores on malware detection in tests run by AV-Test, a security and antivirus testing and research firm. AV-Test also gave the app top marks for usability.

Cons

Thin collection: The Tencent app lacks a few handy features found in many other security apps, including tools for locating and securing a lost phone and for filtering messaging. The app does have a tool called Phone Intercept that promises to block harassing phone calls, but we weren't able to successfully set up or use the tool to block or intercept calls.

No documentation and little guidance: The app lacks help and support documentation, within the app or through a companion website. The lack of any documentation on how to use the app's Phone Intercept feature to block calls was especially frustrating.

Bottom Line

The Tencent Security & AntiVirus Free app, also called Tencent WeSecure, comes with a small set of useful -- and free -- security tools. While most of the tools are easy enough to use, we couldn't figure out how to set up one, without support or documentation.
