Quick question here,

I am using Avast Free on my old Xeperia Z and I wanted to ask some protection like HitmanPro.Alert for Android? or Thor Foresight or Premium or security apps that can suffice?

Thanks!

Why makes you think you need all those apps?
I was asking because in my desktop HitmanPro.Alert eprforms well espcially with the browsers and the office apps. Same thing with Heimdal in my laptop. I have used Avast Premium Security but it is not the same as Avast Free in andriod. Plus the Ads are a pain....

I was thinking perhaps I can retain Avast Free and use some app to augment browser or office app protection....or I can find a different security that can suffice for Avast Free for android. thanks!

update your device to latest lineage if possible will be a very big security enhancement
I can't update to Nougat and I might be stuck with Marshmallow...old phone (not rooted too). I heard about Spohos Intercept X and am contemplating to try it out. Thanks!

Believe me, common sense is enough - you don't need any extra bloat to keep your mobile secure, especially if it isn't rooted.
Don't install shady apps, read what permissions apps are asking for and do not transmit sensitive data over public hot spots - stick to those rules and you'll be safe. Believe me, I am talking from years of my own experience.

Thanks for the replies and explanation guys. I just became confident using such apps in my desktop that sometimes I get jittery using browsers unprotected with HMPA or connections unfiltered by Heimdal. I just downloaded DuckDuckGo and am liking it like Brave for android (no ads is true!)
