Comodo Free Antivirus for Android (Full Protection – and free!)
https://antivirus.comodo.com/antivirus-for-android.php
COMODO Mobile Security and Antivirus for Android. COMODO Mobile Security (CMS) is designed to protect your Android devices against viruses, unsafe apps, potentially risky settings and even from theft. Not only that, it helps to protect your privacy and keeps your system optimized.
“Always on” virus protection and an on-demand scanner help keep your device clear of viruses and unsafe apps. One touch scans and scheduled scans are provided as well as a system “Health Check” feature that quickly identifies viruses, unsafe apps and potentially risky settings. In addition to real time virus protection, CMS also safeguards you from:
Annoying Push Ads hosted by applications that you download from various sources. Harmful USSD attacks from malicious webpages.
Anti-theft:
Remotely recover your device if it is mislaid, lost or stolen. The anti-theft feature enables you to get the location of your device even if its SIM card is changed. You can also make the device sound a loud alarm, take a photograph of the possessor, lock it to prevent unauthorized access and remotely wipe it of all your confidential data-including any files stored on your memory card.
Backup:
Let the fear of data loss from your android device be a thing of the past. CMS allows you to back up important data such as contact lists, text messages and private space to a memory card. You can also back up your CMS configuration as well as all the apps in your device. Restore backed up data instantly in case of data loss in your device.
Privacy Advisor:
Privacy Advisor identifies those apps on your device whose permissions could allow them to compromise your privacy or cost you money in outgoing calls/texts. It will tell you which apps are allowed to access data such as your contact lists and archived messages and which apps can make phone calls/send text messages.
Private Space:
Your Private Space is where you store contacts, phone numbers and text messages that are for your eyes only. Once added, only you will be able to view those communications. In addition, App Protector enables you to lock your apps from being accessed by unauthorized users.
SMS / Call Blocking:
Instantly filter out annoying SMS messages and phone calls by configuring black/white contact lists. Alternatively, simply block all text messages containing certain keywords.
Software Manager:
Now it’s very simple to manage all the apps in your device. You can view the installed apps, take a backup or uninstall them. With a single tap restore uninstalled apps back to your device. Software Manager provides a full list of apps in your device and you can choose either to install them or delete them.
System Optimizer:
A slow responding device can be a most frustrating experience. This can be due to many processes running at the same time and many temporary files stored in cache memory. CMS gives you full visibility and control over running processes. You can see how many are running, how much memory each uses and can quickly close down the ones you don’t want. Software Manager helps you kill apps which may be slowing down your phone down. Clean all the temporary files in cache memory with a single tap and see the performance improve immediately.
Task Scheduler:
Don’t worry about performing an Antivirus scan manually in your device anymore! The Task Scheduler feature in CMS allows you to automate the antivirus scanning process. You can choose to run the scan on any day or all days at a preset time. You can also set schedules for ‘Enter Flight Mode’ and ‘Leave Flight Mode’ on your device.
Traffic Monitoring:
Keep track of your mobile broadband usage in real-time. The Traffic Monitoring feature helps you avoid overage charges for exceeding the data limits on your plan. You can configure the application to provide alerts if your monthly traffic limit is approaching and/or set a daily traffic quota. You’ll also get to see comprehensive details of all GPRS/3G data traffic and a chart of data usage for each running application. You can conserve your data usage by stopping or even uninstalling data-expensive applications. You can also use the Firewall from the traffic monitoring interface to block apps from ever connecting to the Internet.
