    I don't use any AV on my Nexus. I honestly don't think it's needed if you exercise a bit of common sense.

    Malwarebytes running by itself, so far so good.

    I use 360 Mobile Safe.

    I like its Vulnerability Fixing.

    When I'm offline I just exit 360 from the GUI and then stop its main process to decrease the impact on the battery.

    I've just switched from 360 Mobile Safe to Clean Master from Kingsoft.
    I had no reason at all to change from 360. I downloaded Clean Master to try out another cleaning app. However, it turns out that it includes a real time antivirus, and also it finds more junk to clean than other cleaning apps (even more than SD Main Pro which I purchased) so I decided to keep Clean Master and ditch 360, as it seemed pointless having two antiviruses installed.

    Are you guys sure it's Kingsoft? I know the initials should be obvious, but I have looked and don't see it ever say Kingsoft, just KS.

    I will say I use 2 out of the 3 apps they make which is Clean Master and Battery Doctor and I must say they are awesome! I may try the security once I here some feedback from you guys :)

    How does Kingsoft make money from their security/maintenance mobile apps? Does anyone know? I can understand Avast freemium model but I don't see premium paid versions of CleanMaster and the likes.

    Yep, Eset won't even open, keeps crashing here too.
    Switched over to Kaspersky for now sense I have a current license until they sort things out.

    Apparently, they fixed it. There is a new version available on Google Play.

    Clean Master
    No Root Firewall

    Usual Best Practices:
    - toggled radios on/off as needed
    - install/uninstalled applications as needed
    - disabled unused services
    ...
    etc.
