The free antivirus that deletes malware and protects your privacy

Malwarebytes Anti-Malware for Android protects your device in real-time from viruses and vulnerabilities. The scans can be scheduled or on-demand. It's free and also includes the useful App Manager and Privacy Manager.

Intercepts viruses and protects your privacy

From the main screen you can start the on-demand scan of your device. Malwarebytes Anti-Malware goes through the main areas of the OS and installed applications with a fine tooth comb, looking for malware, spyware, and Trojans. From the program options it's also possible to schedule automatic scans.

In addition to the antivirus, Malwarebytes Anti-Malware offers an App Manager that lists all the applications installed on the terminal. For those in use the name of the process, the percentage of CPU use, memory, open threads, and the services used are shown. The same feature also allows you to force close application.

Another important function of the program is the Privacy Manager, which displays an overview of all the permissions required by the installed app. So you can find out which require access to your location, your phone book, phone number, web history, or other confidential information. In essence, it's a useful tool for identifying and possibly uninstalling applications that can be dangerous for your privacy.

From Privacy Manager you also have access to the Security Audit, which suggests a number of measures to protect your safety, based on information from your device.

Intuitive and adapted to all

The usability of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware for Android is excellent. From the main screen you can start an immediate scan of the device (Scan Now) or quickly access the App Manager or the Privacy Manager.

A valuable ally to protect Android

If you're looking for an antivirus that's easy to use but at the same time efficient, Malwarebytes Anti-Malware for Android is a great choice.

Its usability also makes it suitable for the less experienced, and the presence of the Privacy Manager app actually helps you identify applications or operations which could potentially compromise your privacy. All at no cost - what more could you want?
