Editors' Review

Comodo Mobile Security Free AV brings tons of security features to your smartphone, providing excellent protection against malware and theft, but suffers from an unpolished, old-fashioned interface and requires root access for more advanced features. Still, considering that this app is freeware, it remains a good download.

Pros

Feature-rich: Comodo Mobile Security Free AV offers more features than many paid security apps, including a virus scanner, app management and backup, anti-theft protection, traffic monitoring, and backup, all of which work well. We also like the depth of customization of many of the features.

Good performance: Whether we're talking about scheduled scanning, device tracking, or app management, this solution runs smoothly without consuming too many resources. The scanner is also speedy, being able to handle over 3,000 files in less than two minutes.

Handy system optimizer: An app manager with the ability to kill running apps isn't a feature that many security apps have, but it proves to be useful when trying to identify malicious software that uses more resources than usual to transmit data in the background.

Cons

Outdated interface: In spite of its accessibility, the interface feels like it was designed years ago. The silver background makes it dreary, while the lighthearted font seems inappropriate for a security app.

Root access requirement: Some of the more advanced features, including the Firewall, require root access, which you may not be able to get without voiding your manufacturer's warranty.

Bottom Line

Comodo Mobile Security Free AV proves to be a comprehensive security app for smartphone users, impressing with its functionality and performance. If you want complete protection but are not willing to pay for it, this is a good solution, whether you're a casual or power user.
