Current best security apps/suites for Android
Posted on 2016-08-11
My Norton subscription is about to expire. I'm considering changing security software on my (Marshmallow) Android. Any suggestions? Any anti-suggestions?
I want real-time protection for web browsing (preferably for more browsers than Chrome and the stock Android browser, ideally UC Browser), the ability to scan my microSD card, and a good program that will allow me to retrieve a lost phone (photos, siren, GPS) and wipe the phone and SD card remotely, if need be. I'm sure there's a lot more that I would want if I knew more, so feel free to add requirements.
I'm not married to the idea of using a single program for all of these functions. Also, my phone is NOT rooted. I expect that I will root it sometime in the next year.
Incidentally, I tried Where's My Droid, and it totally messed up my phone. I've seen worse mess-ups, but I wouldn't even consider that program (unless my using Norton at the same time was the cause of the problems).
I'll check back in a few days to see what y'experts think. Go!
