Google play users give Sophos Mobile Security an average rating of 4.4 out of 5. Here is what some of them have to say:
Why is an app like this not number one? Why is it not recommended on the front page? This app will stop all the nasties out there getting onto your tablet or phone.
This product is awesome!
Excellent product, works quietly, unobtrusively in the background. Check out their security bulletins as well.
Had some adware I couldn't remove. Tried another security app, it didn't work but Sophos found it no problem.
This is a very helpful security app with basic features that one requires.
