The thing is no matter how much securely you use internet on your Android device, you will need a security app. Google scan all apps on Google Play for malicious behavior but there can be a few working covertly to damage you or your device or both. For this you need an additional security app for your Android device. Fortunately, there are many security apps available in Google Play. Unfortunately, not all of them are good but a few. Before going to see the table of best Android security apps, I would like to talk about a few apps.

It is that Avast and AVG are cloning each other. You may know Avast is the owner of AVG since over a year. Making both apps of similar layout is not good for at least usability purposes. Both apps has same usability issues. The other problem with most of these Android security apps is ad insertion. These apps using ads so heavily feels like these apps has only one purpose and that is serving ads. Only two apps Comodo and Sophos did not have any ads. Also these two apps provide more features as free than any other Android security app.

I am already using Sophos Mobile Security since longtime on my Samsung Galaxy Note 8. Sophos is the lightest security solution on mobile resources. Being ads free, it is in fact very lite. It has all the features a security solution for smart device should have. Now let’s go to the best Android security apps table and check it what you need.
