Anti-virus Free brings you comprehensive security tools to protect your Android

Pro version is ad-free and provides lots of extra features like a stronger malware detection, contacts, bookmarks and SMS protection, deeper and scheduled scans and many more.

Anti-Virus includes a wide range of features that will help you out to keep your phone protected. Actually the anti-virus is just one of them. It will scan apps, settings, files to find in real time malware and viruses in your phone. It will also check apps after installing it.

Besides this feature, Anti-Virus allows you to backup and restore your data and apps. In case you lost or stole phone, it includes an option to find your pone via Google maps thanks to the GPS. In order to guarantee your privacy, you can lock and wipe you device from this app. Finally, Anti-Virus Free can work as a task killer and end processes up. By that way you will be able to increase your battery-life. All these features in just one app.

Anti-Virus has been developed by AVG Mobilation and DroidSecurity, partnered together to create a comprehensive mobile security system.

Given the recent increase in cases of attacks on smartphones, it's a good idea to install an antivirus to keep safe our devices. In addition, Anti-Virus is not an antivirus, but also a task killer, app locker, local device wipe and phone locator. 100% worth. The only flaw, it drains battery since anti-virus has to be on and uses network.

    The manual general scan used to work, but recently the app just crashes while in the middle of a scan. I've tried many times, even uninstalling and then reinstalling, all with the same result. (For my phone, it always crashes right at the 121st file.) Automatic scan after the installation of a new app still works, though. Please fix.
