    My personal opinion. If you are smart about what you do, there is absolutely NO NEED for Virus protection on a phone, I don't even use one on my PC because I am smart about what I do, what I click on etc.
    Your phone is defaulted to only allow APKs from the Play Store. AV slows down your phones performance and eats memory. I have never seen a use for it on a phone. You would have to be doing some pretty insane crap to get a virus on your mobile.
