The best antivirus software for Android (July 2016)

AV-Test Laboratory published the results of testing the level of protection and ease of use 26 mobile antivirus software on Android 5.1.1 platform, held in July 2016.

  • Detection of the latest Android malware in real-time: 3,459 samples used;
  • Detection of the latest Android malware discovered in the last 4 weeks: 3,367 samples used.

During July 2016 we evaluated 26 mobile security products for Android using their default settings.

As always, AV-Test used the most current version of all products for the testing and focused on malware detection and usability, including performance and false positives. They were allowed to update themselves at any time and query their in-the-cloud services. Products had to demonstrate their capabilities using all components and protection layers.
