AV-Comparatives used more than 3,000 recent malicious apps for the Android operating system in the Mobile Malware Protection Test. The results clearly showed the benefit of using a third-party antivirus product to protect smartphones against Android malware.

Security programs have been criticized in the past for their ability to drain device batteries. AV-Comparatives addressed this issue by conducting battery drain tests. Each product’s effect on battery life during daily phone use (calls, web browsing, watching videos, and sending emails) was measured.

Along with the test results, the report contains tips and general security information for Android device users. Android’s built-in security measures were reviewed, as well as the effect on third-party security apps. Security tips for Android users are also provided .

All tested Android products passed AV-Comparatives’ criteria, except those of Google.
