    I've been using Lookout for many years, so I've had this app on multiple past phones...still using it. Just recently installed Bitdefender based on a recommendation from a Youtube video review. Also use the "Security" function of "Device care" to scan all apps. That's all at this moment. Also use the free version of "Proton VPN" if that helps for anything. I used to use more antivirus apps in the past for my phone, but don't remember anymore which ones I liked. On my Windows laptops, I have waaay more antivirus and firewall apps installed. Am I too paranoid??

    I use Bitdefender on my PC's/laptops at home. I don't use anything on my phones. Never have and I've never had an issue. I am selective about my apps and don't go on any questionable sites. Maybe you're paranoid, maybe I'm not paranoid enough. IDK. Lol.

    I don't use anything personally. I know there's a McAfee anti-malware tool built in, but I don't have it enabled.

    What is very annoying is for the antivirus apps to constantly have a popup window requesting me to upgrade to their premium version for my Windows laptops. I'm constantly clicking no to these repeated questions. This alone makes me want to uninstall...but alas...I'm paranoid...

    Orbi has good protection plan to include all your devices. But I haven't used Bitdefender mobile (which is what Orbi uses) because I just don't see the need for it.

    You get pop ups on your PC? I pay like $35 for bitdefender each year and it covers everyone's computers in my house. No pop ups asking for anything more. I get an email once a year to remind me about renewal.

    I use BitDefender. I've had it for a few years now, it's free and no pop-ups. The only time I see it running is after a restart.

    ^ This.

    Me too.

    I feel it uses too much resource.

    The phone already has some good defences and common sense prevails too.

    I think you'll be safe as long as you don't do any of that when you go to a camp that's been terrorized by a supernatural serial killer...by the way don't go to a camp that's been terrorized by a supernatural serial killer.

    Dont use antivirus. Besides the play store scans the apps for you. And I dont download anything outside the play store. Also 99% of those antivirus apps are just glorified pop ads and cache cleaners.
