It may not have all the bells and whistles of some of the other best Android antivirus apps, but Malwarebytes Mobile Security delivers good protection against the worst the web has in store for your phone or tablet. More than 10 million people have downloaded the app and it has a 4.4 rating on the Google Play Store. There’s also a free version as well as a 30-day trial of the Premium app. 

While the Premium version protects with a combination of scanning, real-time analysis, website warnings and the ability to keep potentially unwanted apps off your system, the Premium + Privacy version adds access to the company’s VPN. Unfortunately, the VPN app is separate and lacks integration which is why you might be better off with one of the best VPN services instead. All told, Malwarebytes for Android is pricey considering what it includes but can protect a device from a web onslaught. Our Malwarebytes Mobile Security review will help you decide if this Android antivirus app provides the protection needed for your Android devices.
