Free Antivirus and Security


FREE antivirus for your Android - Full features, no nag screens, all free
Sophos Mobile Security comprehensively protects your Android device without compromising performance or battery life. Using up-to-the-minute intelligence from SophosLabs, your apps will be automatically scanned as you install them. This antivirus functionality protects you from malicious software which can lead to data loss and unexpected costs. Moreover, if your device is lost or stolen, a remote lock or wipe will shield your personal information from prying eyes. This is what we call complete security!

Its killing my battery When I go to battery status it shows sophos app using twice as much power as my display screen. All phones biggest consumption of battery is the display. What gives sophos? I used to love this product but uninstalling it until this gets fixed.
