Are you tired of the phone getting slow? If yes then it’s because of viruses and junk file in your mobile. So what was the best way to get rid of these viruses? The answer is a good antivirus. In this post, I am going to review the best free antivirus for android mobile.



So which is the best free antivirus for Android?

There are lots of antiviruses are available in the android play store but if you ask me I recommend you to go with AVG antivirus.

I recommend you this app because I personally tested in my mobile and I find out that it is one of the best android antivirus apps for your mobile.

Why I loved this app because it not only just the antivirus but it has lots of other features which is required for phones protection and privacy.


Before talking about the features of the app, let get know who is AVG?

AVG or Anti-virus guard is the most popular free antivirus software for windows and mac. AVG is the most successful product of AVG technology which is one of the biggest giants in the antivirus industry.

After the huge success in windows and mac platform, it had launched the antivirus app for android. One of the greatest thing about this app is, it has already downloaded by 100 million+ users.


So let’s see all the great features about this app.


Real-time scanning

As the app says it provides real-time scanning so I personally tested it and I found that it really alerts you about the risk and virus when you’re using your mobile or downloading some unwanted things from the internet.

The second most important feature that I like in this app is anti-theft. Yes, I know that Android has already that feature inbuilt. But it can act as a second layer of security for your mobile to protect it from theft.



One great feature in this app is camera trap which takes seceret photos after anyone fails 3 times to enter your pin.

It tracks your mobile phone via google maps by detecting the exact location of the mobile.




Task Killer

You know the second reason behind phone getting slow after viruses are the apps which are running in the background.

But the amazing things about the apps is that it had provided you a task killer from that you can stop the unwanted apps which were running in the background

Track Battery usage and enable battery saving mode

Most of the android users are really worried about the battery life of the phone. But the good thing about this app is that it tracks your phone’s battery and also warns you when the battery reaches 10%, 30%, and 50% which you select.

It also has the option of Autosave battery which enables battery saver mode on 10%, 30%, and 50% which you select. It saves battery by disabling the unnecessary apps and unwanted data usage in the background.

I personally tested it on my phone and it seriously my battery last longer when it on battery saver mode.

It also shows you the status of your phone’s battery like temperature, health and time remaining of usage.


Track data usages and storage usage

AVG antivirus has the amazing feature which tracks data usage so that you can look out which app is consuming more data and you can also disable that app to save you data.

It tracks storage usage and also you can install clean junk app of AVG which cleans the unwanted junk files and duplicate files from your phone.


Privacy Protection

We all wanted to keep our data safe and private. Also, we don’t want anyone to see our private files and photos. The good thing is that AVG antivirus app provides this feature also.


Some of them are

App lock: It locks your sensitive app with pin, pattern, and password so that anyone cannot access the private apps without your permission.

Vault: It securely hides your private videos, photos, and other private files.

App Backup: You can back up your important app to your SD card.

Call Blocker: Last but important it provides call blocking facility so that you can block the unwanted call which you don’t want to receive.


I had listed some amazing feature of this app but everything has its pros and cons. So let’s talk about the disadvantage of this app.

The biggest disadvantage from my point of view is, You have to buy pro version of this app if you want to use the three functions i.e app lock vault, and app backup.

The good thing is that it provides 30 days trial of pro version to check out how its works.

But apart from that, all the others feature are free to use.

The second thing is that if you are using a free version of this app, then it shows you ads.


Final word:

From my point of view, it was a very good antivirus for phone which not only secures your phone from viruses but also provides you all other security features which all are requires for a pro android user.

So what you are waiting for go ahead and download the app and don’t forget to share your views about this app in the comment section.
