CNET Editors' review

The increasing impact of malware on smartphones means that many users need protection software. Webroot Security & Antivirus performs the necessary functions of a malware protection program and is easy to operate, even for beginning smartphone users.

The program is available for free, but there is an upgrade available to a premium version with additional features for $19.99 per year. Download and installation through the Google Play store completed as expected, although there is a lengthy user agreement that needs to be accepted in order to run the program. The main screen, which provides an overview of the phone's status, is well designed and easy to decipher. The program is divided into sections for security, privacy, and help. The security screen allows scanning for viruses and for secure Web browsing. The virus scan took a long time to complete, but this was expected from a thorough scan covering all of the phone's systems. In addition to scans, the program makes recommendations regarding additional security, such as lock screen settings. If a phone is lost or stolen, users also have the ability to wipe its memory remotely through the developer's Web page. Each of the submenus is easy to use, even for inexperienced smartphone users.

Webroot Security & Antivirus performs its functions well and would be a good option for any Android user looking for a solid security app for their smartphone or tablet.

    "Excellent Anti-Virus"

    April 8, 2012  |   By TheNordicWarrior

    Version: Webroot Security & Antivirus 2.2.1.1046

    Pros

    Lightweight - uses under 10MB of virtual memory
    Great Adaptive Anti-Virus
    No Updates Required, Cloud based so it is always in sync.
    Contains Cahes and Registry cleanup so you can get rid of CCleaner

    Cons

    None so far

    Summary

    This is the best Anti-Virus I have used to date. The best part is because it is lightweight and Cloud based you can run it on anything from netbooks to Powerhouse Desktops.
