1. 360 Security – Antivirus Boost
360 Security is by far on of the best antivirus app that is available on Google Play Store and the USP is it is totally free (with ad support). This app comes with almost every feature we can expect from an antivirus app. The 360 Security scans your Android device, removes any threats found and also cleans your device. Also, the app comes with additional features like a privacy adviser and a data monitor.
2. Bitdefender Antivirus Free

The app not only scans for virus, but also fights against malwares. Another key feature about this app is that it is very light in weight and thus it will easily run on older devices. The app is completely free though it also comes with paid antivirus support.
3. CM Security Antivirus AppLock
The CM Security Antivirus app is considerably a newer one in the market and is also quite popular nowadays. While the app comes with regular features like antivirus and anti-malware, it also comes with a ‘find-my-phone’ function which includes Google Maps integration and scream mode. The app also brings in a lot of free features which we usually get only in paid versions of other apps.
4. Kaspersky Internet Security
Kaspersky which is popular in the PC segment has now reached the Android platform with a free app and a paid yearly subscription. However, the free scaled down app is pretty good in itself and offers basic and essential functions. The plus point is the anti-theft feature which is available in the free version of the app.
