This is a twin-engine anti-virus software to protect the safety of mobile phones in real time, perfect.
Antivirus Free works from the background, detecting malware apps. That’s how it works: every time a new app is downloaded on your phone, it cross-reference it with its database in order to check if it’s just an app or if it’s unfortunately something else. If it was a malicious app it would warn you.
This raises a big question: whether it’s too early to have an antivirus. In the end, we should have nothing to fear if we don’t download anything outside the usual and trusted suppliers. But this app uses really little battery as it only checks from a database when a new app is detected.
It’s also true that just a few if any smartphone virus have been detected to date, so its usefulness can be questionable.
We have to say that we have not the chance to make a real test, so it’s up to you. As we have plenty of faith in the vast majority of developers, we’ve given four stars. If someday we -hope we not- have to use it, there will be the fifth waiting for it.
