Our Sophos Mobile Security app protects your Android device without reducing performance or battery life. Using up-to-the-minute intelligence from SophosLabs, we automatically scan apps as you install them. 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.
Feel free to check out the media coverage and user reviews on our free Android security app.
