    Do you have antivirus

    I was just wondering how many people actually have antivirus software on their Android? I don't have it but I know people that do. How likely is it that an Android can get a virus anyway?

    I downloaded Lookout Techno, thanks for the recommendation. I haven't found anything and I find it unlikely that I ever will, but better be safe than sorry right? It seems to be a good program though.

    I will recommend you avg anti virus software for this. I am using it on my Samsung Galaxy Note since 3 months. There is no issue working fine to secure my device.

    I do not have an anti-virus on my phone. Considering how much computers get hacked, though, I'm thinking about getting one. I've heard Norton isn't great for computers; do they even have a mobile anti-virus?

    I know, right? It's a shame that Android seems to follow Windows' path in terms of security issues. It amazes me how quickly they create viruses, and how the antivirus companies have to stay alert and update their databases every single day.

    So... any other recommendations besides Lookout ?

    To be honest, I have never heard of Lookout until now. I have been using Dr. Web for Android devices for the past half year. Dr. Web is a security software company from Russia, and I have been a fan of their products for quite some time. Their Android antivirus app is quick and simple; it almost doesn't slow down my smartphone at all...
