In this report, we try to assist readers in evaluating both Android’s built-in security measures and the additional, more sophisticated features provided by third-party security apps. In addition to the results of comprehensive malware protection and battery consumption tests, the report includes reviews that evaluate the functionality, app design and overall usability of each security solution. A short table at the end of each product report gives an overview of any anti-theft functions included in that product. Many of the reviewed and tested apps have non-security related components, such as app managers, network monitors, and system optimizers. However, we mainly focus on the security features (anti-malware, anti-theft, safe browsing, and privacy) in our reviews, and only mention further functionality briefly. The structure of each product report is kept identical, to allow readers to compare products more easily.
