    Default Viruses

    Is it possible to infect Android with a virus? Do I need to install an anti virus app on my MotoG?
    If so, is Avast OK - I use that on my Windows PC.
    Thanks

    I wouldn't bother. So long as you don't go downloading shady stuff, you should be fine.

    Google doesn't catch everything so yes, antivirus is highly recommended.
