I use Bitdefender but probably don't even need an AV for my phone. I use it as a phone, check emails, text a bit, and sometimes look up obscure facts on the web. No shopping, streaming, banking or social media.
That's how I use my phone too, except I don't even read my emails on it. My thumb is bigger than most of the sentence itself and I hate sideways scrolling. :LOL:

Dr.Safety doesn't work like sophos new learning curve so go at it with and open mind and also fiddle with stuff because some setting are not upfront and in your face like changing scan level to high from low and also it requires a lot of permissions and other stuff like something about overlay and also accessibility requirements.
This video language is not in English but visuals are there, hope this helps champ.

Ty!


I don't use Kaspersky premium anymore cause it lacks support for many browsers, like Edge and Brave :oops:
Not only that. It'll not run if you do NOT have Googles services. I tried running in a VM ( VMOS Pro) without Google services and its real-time protection or web filtering is not working. It prompts a message saying it needs Google services to run or something similar

I think it's best to stick to the bigger guys. We are not sure how good are these small guys like how large and good is their virus database or how great is their AI. Big guys are well proven in Windows and other OSes
