    "Malware begone"

    Malwarebytes Anti-Malware was just voted one of the very most effective security apps on the market by Lifehacker. It comprehensively removed all traces of malware, spyware, and Trojans from the test devices, more cleanly than the majority of the other apps that were tested.

    Apart from effective scanning, the app includes security features that let you know which apps might be asking for permissions you don't necessarily want to give them (like tracking your location or even using your SMS). You can also manage all your apps here, checking which are running and force closing any that might be clogging up your system processes.

    It's a simple, effective, lightweight malware scanner. You need an app like this on your mobile device, and this is a very good one.
