Our free Mobile Security app provides full functionality to protect your Android device without reducing performance or battery life. Using up-to-the-minute intelligence from SophosLabs, we scan your apps on demand or in intervals of your choice.

This antivirus functionality helps you avoid undesirable software that may lead to data loss and unexpected costs. And if your device is lost or stolen, a remote lock or wipe will shield your personal information from prying eyes.
