    New here. I keep getting prompted to install an antivirus app on my phone. Is this just an add? It's from androidantivirusfree.org

    Thanks in advance!

    You really don't need anti virus with android. It's got to be a add of some form

    A lot of ads are designed to look like prompts or mimic notifications like "your phone may have a virus" banners within free apps. If it shows up in the notification bar, it's certainly an ad and is triggered by an app you installed.
