The most effective mobile antivirus will provide high-quality malware security that has little impact on the device’s performance. It should also come with an intuitive and user-friendly interface and offer extras like anti-theft tools including app lock and identity security. In addition, it shouldn’t cost a lot, especially as Android users can download applications from a greater variety of sources than Apple devices (which uses strict App Store approvals).

Kaspersky Mobile Antivirus, now called Kaspersky Security and Antivirus, received perfect scores on independent tests. It also has an easy-to-use interface. Its free version doesn’t have advertisements and doesn’t force users to upgrade, but it does require a reliable internet connection. A paid plan includes call blocking, Android Wear and a powerful set of anti-theft tools. However, it lacks features that other apps offer, such as a Wi-Fi network scanner and privacy tools.

Bitdefender Antivirus Plus is one of the most powerful and feature-rich software available and its protection against malware was top notch in our independent tests. It has a clean and easy-to-use interface, and its alerts are clear, bold and informative. It’s not reliable and requires a continuous internet connection to check for viruses.

Lookout Mobile Security was one of the very first antivirus apps available for Android. It is now known as Lookout Security & Antivirus, or Lookout Personal. It’s still a top choice due to its simple interface as well as identity protection and subscription pricing that isn’t complicated. The free tier comes with blocking of calls and SMS as well as device scanning and anti-theft. The premium version offers real-time protection as well as a safe web browser.
