    I just got the new galaxy s9 and was wondering if I needed to add antivirus protection to it.

    Some say yea, others nay.

    Most important perhaps is to be careful about the sites that you visit and the apps that you download and install.

    If you go to your settings, you'll notice the 'device maintenance', through that there is a default anti virus with the phone (malware protection etc). Hope this helps

    yeah! Agree with belodion it has been a lot of threads on this
    Acentral forum. if we should or not install a third party antivirus

    But as mentioned by Joshua Fisher1 the latest
    phones comes up with a built in - Antivirus app

    In my case I've my Pc and phone protected with Kaspersky
    But at times when I do the Maintenance task a warning
    says "Virus scanning is turned off" Turn it on to

    protect the phone from malware. But I ignored
    because I've my own antivirus protection app
