Although some are reluctant to admitting that there is malware specifically written for Android devices, this does not change the fact that some security experts deal with such threats on a daily basis.
Considering this, BitDefender just launched the stable version of their antivirus for Android devices. The app relies on in-the-cloud scanning technology in order to reduce strain on battery and offer great detection rate.
BitDefender Mobile Security comes in two versions, paid and free. Web page scanning and Anti-Theft are the two features available only in the Premium edition. However, the feature set is quite rich, scanning each app immediately after installation and auditing permission requirements.
Thus, you will be aware of the apps that require access to the Internet or to sensitive data on your Android.
