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!

Crashes on lollipop 5.01 Occasionally when I unlock my Nexus 5, the red Sophos icon is gone and I can get into my protected apps without being challenged for the password.

Doesn't delete threats & PUA's It is not removing SMSReg from my phone, plz rectify.One thing I like about this app is that through a single press of a button both apps & SD card can b scanned which is not the case in CM security. Read that this apps RAM usage is high , plz rectify it asap. Also , it uses a lot of storage space , plz rectify. But ur SD card feature is good as it detected the Test Virus Zip files which CM security , 360 security , Antity AVL dint . So I switched to Sophos .

* Sophisticated, Upmarket and FREE * An anagram of Sophos is *SO POSH* of which the dictionary says is *very attractive, expensive, popular & typical of people who have high social status* EXCEPT THIS IS FREE and I've come to the conclusion that alot of people think money = virus immunity and I'm sure people don't even read AV Descriptions and see mammoth installs and a host of false Dev reviews and press install. This Fab AV may not be totally invincible but gives most everything others charge for. Good Job Devs, Thee #1, GALAXY S5
