What's a good anti virus for a Verizon Tablet - Android
« on: October 17, 2016, 07:34:55 PM »
Wife's android tablet, a Verizon Ellipsis ... anyone have suggestions for a good anti-virus program?
I don't see anything on there that would be anti-virus software.

Thanks,

There are any number of decent ones, e.g. AVG, Avast, Bit Defender, Kaspersky, Malware Bytes. Even Norton and McAfee, if you like the best known (but not necessarily best performing) brands.

This article describes & compares many of the available products.

I have the free version of AVG on one Android phone and Malware Bytes on the other.

I have an 8 station network, with 9 external devices - problem free with 5 years using Bitdefender.

I've got the same unit, really like it.

I don't use an antivirus on it, however if I was going to use one it would be AVG.

I do use ccleaner on it to clean it out every so often.
