Last month, the well-know independent security institute AV-Test released a detailed report (including 17 pages in total here) about the result of their newest experiment on free Android security software. In short they concluded that almost free security scanners/software on Android ecosystem are good but they are not enough to protect users from threats. Their advice was that you should lean on premium ones.
First, I ‘m 100 percent agree with the result and advice from AV-Test. However, I think that is probably an unavoidable result since the security test center did not test some free security solutions for Android which are almost more popular.
Apart from choosing two commercial security software F-Secure Mobile Security and Kaspersky Mobile Security, Av-Test only tested 7 following free security scanners for Android: Antivirus Free, BluePoint Antivirus Free, GuardX Antivirus, Kinetoo Malware Scan, LabMSF Antivirus beta, Privateer Lite và Zoner AntiVirus Free. Are they enough? I think you can easily find out more free security tools for Android on the Market. Here in this article, I want to round-up the best free security software for Android from famous vendors.
