    Norton Mobile Security "mainly for the app adviser/scanner"
    Norton App Lock "Because extra protection for sensitive apps is a must now days"
    Norton Wifi Privacy Secure VPN

    I do not download from 3rd party sources, only Google Play store, of which upon getting the phone, i grabbed the few applications "that were heavily vetted first" placed them on the phone, and now have no need to download anything. I only connect to public hotspots with Norton Wifi enabled.

    So far : nothing at all.
    FWIW my Samsung Galaxy Tab S is provided with 'Knox' https://www.samsungknox.com/en/knox-technology.
    I honestly don't know if that is offering some kind of protection against malware. I own this tablet about close to 2 years now.
    Not a frequent user. Installed a malware scanner just now, no malware found. Uninstalled it, because one way or the other
    it blocked making screenshots.

    Bottomline, frankly speaking, no idea what to chose and if at all it is necessary.

    btw: I used CCleaner just now, after 'cleaning' and re-analyzing, the same data was still there (protected by Android, or
    something) and CCleaner reported that it could not be cleaned.

    360 security. It feels lite though rather obtrusive with popups to clean phone.

    Tencent's WeSecure, seems to be very good. It's free, is ad free (unlike most Android antiviruses) and has performed very well when tested by AV Comparatives and AV Test. Although the screenshots on Google Play show a junk cleaning module, it doesn't actually have one (maybe it did in earlier versions) and is just an antivirus.

    Anyone here using both Adguard and Emsisoft Mobile Security by chance? Was curious if there are any conflicts since both have web protection.
