In my opinion YES! and i give you this excerpt from an article by Ashley Poland for http://smallbusiness.chron.com/need-antivirus-kindle-66360.html "The Kindle Fire is vulnerable on two accounts: it connects to the Internet and it runs a modified Android operating system. According to Nerds On Call, any device connected to the Internet should have some form of malware protection. On top of that, Android is the most targeted mobile operating system for malware attacks. While anti-virus isn't as crucial on your Kindle as it would be on your computer, it does lend an extra layer of protection." There are a number of free security apps available at Amazon: Lookout, AVG, Dr. Web. And yes there is an ad blocking app, its called ADBLOCK PLUS. I've used it with Android. it doesn't stop all the ads, but it does give some control over what type ads get through.
