phone or tablet from malware, infected apps, and spying. Detecting and eliminating malware such as ads and trojans is its business, and business is good! No, the app isn't the best of its kind - and as far as we know, there's no champion holding a crown, although your personal opinion is welcome - but it does the job, and costs nothing. It also has an incredibly bare-bones interface - a shoot and go approach with a single Scan button to start hunting parasites, and two other buttons to launch the App and Privacy managers. This is good news, as the minimalist approach is spread over the whole app, preserving your device’s performance by including just the essential engines and features.Coming from the world of PC malware protection, Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Mobile protects your Android
Anti-Malware alerts you if a malicious website is detected in an incoming SMS and identifies location-tracking apps you might not be aware about. It automatically recognizes security vulnerabilities in your Android device’s settings, then makes recommendations on how to prevent breaches. It also searches through on-board memory and SD storage, schedules automatic scans, and updates the protection database on its own - over Wi-Fi, if you so prefer. In addition, the app links itself to Android Device Manager’s device location features so the device can be located, locked, or reset if it ends up lost or stolen. That's quite the feature list for a free security app.
Anti-Malware Mobile is free on Google Play, although you can download the latest beta-version from MB's Google+ community page.

I'm doing fine, no need to feel sorry for me. But I do feel sorry for you, you can't get out a complete thought before hitting the post button. And also for the ones who upvoted you, because apparently broken thoughts seem normal to them.

Not entirely true, I sideload on a regular basis but I don't need an antivirus. Just know the source (in my case AP for faster updated apps).

I'm planning to buy a new android phone, i will try this one. I'm already using this in my 2 windows 8 laptops and it is good in detecting and removing malwares.
