I want to find a good security product for my tablet device which runs on Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean).

Do you have any good suggestion ?

Thanks.

And the price is right too.

Thanks. Roger.

Another problem to ask. Would people mostly install security product in their tablet ? I'm a new user and don't know much about to take care of it. I treat it like a normal desktop computer or notebook computer.

Other than installing AV software, is there any other method to prevent virus during browsing ?

I can't say if others would install security into their tablet. Being careful where you go and not feeling immune from malware is the best thing I can think of. I know I wouldn't go on the internet without protection.

If you wouldn't do it with your computer on the Internet, you shouldn't do it with your tablet or smartphone either.

Edit - a bit late, oops.

Kaspersky Mobile is around twelve bucks a year for one device. I don't know about their mobile yet, but that's all I use on my pc now. I've had enough of the rest of 'em.
