    Default ANTIVIRUS

    Should I have one? And which anti virus do you suggest me to download?
    I downloaded the AVG but it appear an error like forcing my Google search application close. I don't know why but It wasn't forcing/closing before I downloaded this application

    Many would say that you don't need one if you remain savvy and careful, only installing apps from the Google Play store. However, of the one's I've tried Avast was my favorite.
    Live long and prosper.

    I tried avast and AVG. I like Lookout the best. I had issueswit Avast tellling me that there is something wrong with apps I have downloaded from Google Play Market . when I had downloaded it it will tell me that it is fine then later something is wrong.

    That's why I don't waste my time with antivirus apps. You don't need one if you're downloading apps from the playstore.

    As far as a virus from an app, so long as you're downloading apps from reputable developers from the Play Store, you should be fine at this point. Google does a very good job of keeping things both fairly open, and safe at the same time.

    But there is always the chance of getting something from an internet site, attachment, etc. much the same way you can in a desktop environment. Again, so long as your visiting solid reputable sites, you should be fine.

    If you're not, there are a bunch of options in addition to the above: Kaspersky, Lookout, Symantec, 360 Mobile Security...

    Whether or not you really need one is up to you.

    Good luck.

    Thanks for your replies. A good example would be watching porn on some sites so it would be better to have one right?

    I wouldn't know. But better safe than sorry. Reputable sites should be fine - They want you to come back, and want your business.

    You may also want to look at a stealth browser. I think most of the major ones offer this option in some form or another.
