Avira also has a wider number of features. Beyond the virus scanner, it has 100MB of VPN usage per day, some storage-optimizing features, identity protection, and a permissions manager.

It’s a nice set of features along with top-notch protection, at this writing.

Number 2: Bitdefender Antivirus for Android

If you want something much simpler, and that has equally good protection rankings look no further than Bitdefender. The Romania-based company actually has two apps in the Play Store. The free one is Bitdefender Antivirus, not Bitdefender Mobile Security.

The free version does exactly what it says: scans your phone when you ask it to. There’s also some minimal automated scanning from Auto-pilot when you download a new app—a potential attack vector for Android phones.

Bitdefender earned 100 percent from AV-Test for real-time attacks and widespread malware tests for March 2022. It also had a 100 percent detection rating from AV-Comparatives’ 2021 Mobile Security Review.

Scans are fast and effective

Number 3: AVG Antivirus Free for Android

Another top protection option is AVG Antivirus & Security for Android. It got top marks from AV-Test with 100 percent protection for the real-time and widespread malware tests. Over at AV-Comparatives, however, the detection rate was 99.6 percent, with one false positive. That’s partially why we’re putting it down here in third place. Another downside is that it uses personalized advertising to support it, while the others don’t.

Despite that annoyance, however, there’s a lot to like about AVG’s free Android app. It can scan apps and files, clean-up junk files, and scan your current Wi-Fi network. it also has malicious website protection, a “RAM booster” that kills background apps, a Wi-Fi speed test, and an anti-theft feature for tracking and securing your phone remotely. That last feature requires an AVG account.

If you prefer Avast, which owns AVG, that app is good too. It had the same protection scores as AVG and pretty much the same feature set for free.

AdvantagesDisadvantages
Easy-to-use interfaceMalware protection isn’t perfect
Nice set of features for a free service

Number 4: Sophos Intercept for Mobile

For major features, Sophos offers a lot including malware scanning for apps and files, malicious web page blocking, a link checker for protection against malicious links, Wi-Fi network scanning, and a privacy advisor.

While it has a slightly lower score than the other apps for real-time reaction it’s still a very good service and it has a lot of nice features. Plus, it doesn’t have any ads.

AdvantagesDisadvantages
No adsSupport is a little difficult to reach
Good threat detection
