Knowing that no OS is safe, and being slightly paranoid, I put Avast Free on my Android.  However, I'd like to know if malware EXPERTS have a studied opinion about the best choice to protect our Android phones.  Thanks!


Namaste, Peace & Love,
Glenn

The best way to stay safe is check the apps before installation and not connect to malware detected machines. Also you can you kaspersky antivirus for your android phone.

I use the following on my phone:

 

-Adguard

-Bitdefender Mobile

-Sophos

-Advanced Permission Manager (to remove un-needed permissions from apps before installing them)

 

and as @elizabeth pointed out, install apps from trusted sources. Even some apps on Playstore are infected.
