    There is a huge test of Android security apps at the AV-Comparatives website.

    250 security apps for Android phones were downloaded and tested against 2,000 known types of malware.

    • Only 23 detected 100% of malware
    • Only 80 blocked more than 30% of malware
    • 170 detected less than 30% of malware!

    Are you using the wrong security app on your Android phone?

    It is interesting looking at the list and many of the well-established security companies are in the 23 that detected all the malware – Avast, AVG, Avira, Bitdefender, F-Secure, McAfee and so on.

    These companies have years experience in detecting and removing malware on Windows and it shows. If you are not sure which security software to choose, it is always safer to go with a company with history and experience.

    Some others did well, but if you don’t know the company, you don’t know whether the security is any good – unless you check the results in tests like this.
