360 Security – Antivirus Boost Logo

2. 360 Security – Antivirus Boost [Price: Free]

First up is 360 Mobile Security.

It’s highly rated with a 4.5 rating in the Play Store.


  • Totally free with ad support.
  • Scans and deletes threats and keeps an eye out for others with features like privacy adviser.

Bitdefender Antivirus Free3. Bitdefender Antivirus Free [Price: Free]

Even though Bitdefender has a full-featured antivirus app, we actually liked this one better. It’s wildly simple to use. Here’s how it works. You install it, scan for stuff, remove threats, and then it sits there and waits for bad stuff to try to come to you. That’s it. No ridiculous features and no nonsense. It’s also free. If you want to keep the Bitdefender name but move on to paid antivirus support, check out BitDefender Mobile Security.


  • Very simple. Just install, run the scan, remove the crap, and the app sits and waits for more threats.
  • Antivirus, anti-malware, and anti-phishing.
  • Very light so it's great for older devices and that also means a shorter permissions list.
  • Free.


  • If you need more features and more protection, look elsewhere.

Malwarebytes Anti-Malware App

4. Malwarebytes Anti-Malware [Price: Free]

The famous (and free) PC anti-malware tool made its way onto Android back in late 2013. Despite some early hiccups, the general consensus about Malwarebytes is that it’s a positive force in Android security. This app focuses more on removing threats and preventing them. The developers have also significantly decreased bloat over its competitors. If you need something simple and free, this is a good option.


  • Much like its PC counterpart, this app is lightweight and focuses only on stopping or removing malware.
  • Also scans for apps that may be abusing their permissions, such as location or other personal information.
  • It's totally free.
  • Recognizes that Android Device Manager exists as a reason for not having anti-theft. We like smart people who say smart things. The app also integrates directly into Android Device Manager.
  • Whitelist approved apps for customized security.


  • There have been a few hiccups here and there that expect will get fixed.
  • Some of the features may be a tad overzealous sometimes which may be annoying.
