Free Antivirus and Security


FREE ANTI-VIRUS for your Android - Full features, no nag screens, all free
Sophos Mobile Security is a robust yet lightweight app which 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 anti-virus functionality enables you to be protected 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. That is what we call complete security!

Great Security App This is a great app (if I could do 3.5 stars I would), I love the features but there are two downfalls that are pushing me back to Lookout as my security solution. First, there is no web interface, you have to text. I don't have a texting plan, just google voice so that isn't an option. Second, lookout has a fantastic "lock screen camera" feature that takes a photo and emails it to you if your password is entered incorrectly three times. While some of the advanced features that are free with Sophos are paid on Lookout, on the whole Lookout is the winner for interface and a few features I find useful.

I Love It I am in love with this app. But it crashed on my tab, I guess it is because of my update to android 4.4.2 please do something about it.

App lock only supports password, not PIN entry mode. Grace period, good. On/Off switch anywhere? Smart App lock includes an option to require a password OR pin before a USB connection is made. Android does not have an option to enter WiFi passwords upon every connect, Sophos says WiFi is insecure, should I delete all saved access points??
