    I have both DU and 360. I just want to know if I need both installed or one? I got my notebook Samsung phone like this, with both installed already. What should I do?

    DU is no good at all. (No company that writes "RAM cleaners" understands how Android works.) 360 is also a "speed booster", which actually slows the phone down (see Dianne Hackborn's article - I trust the people who wrote Android more than I do the people who write apps for it).

    If you want an antivirus app, try Avast Mobile Security & Antivirus, AVG AntiVirus Security, Avira Antivirus Security or Kaspersky Internet Security (alphabetical order, no recommendation - they're all good). Also run Malwarebytes Anti-Malware. Stay away from "Speed up" or "cleaner" apps. The fastest way to speed up a phone is to uninstall those things.

    Anything by DU Apps or their parent Baidu (DU is the 'du' in Baidu) should be considered malware, because it is, and uninstalled immediately! Here's why:


    There's nothing secure about 360 Security. It should also be considered malware and uninstalled.
    Here's a list of just a few more to avoid:


    IMHO antivirus on Android is pointless, or at least ineffective. I've never used it. But that's just me....
