AV-Comparatives Mobile Security Review 2023

Disclaimer
  1. This test shows how an antivirus behaves with certain threats, in a specific environment and under certain conditions.
    We encourage you to compare these results with others and take informed decisions on what security products to use.
    Before buying an antivirus you should consider factors such as price, ease of use, compatibility, and support. Installing a free trial version allows an antivirus to be tested in everyday use before purchase.

Introduction

In this report, we aim to aid readers in evaluating both the built-in security measures of Android and the advanced features provided by third-party security apps. Our report covers results from malware protection and battery consumption tests, along with reviews that assess the functionality, app design, and overall usability of each security solution. At the end of each product report, readers can find a table that offers an overview of any anti-theft functions included in that particular product. While some of the apps we’ve tested might have additional features like app managers, network monitors, and system optimizers, we primarily focus on security, including anti-malware, anti-theft, safe browsing, and privacy in our reviews and only briefly mention any further functionality. To facilitate easier product comparisons, we maintain a consistent structure for each product report

On un rooted Samsung Android with 4 years security updates using Google Play and Bitdefender free and Samsung's fort knox (secure folder for consumers and compartment for enterprise) I think security is well covered.

Good to see paid AV's do so well

Samsung also used McAfee (in Device Care), so I don't think that Bitdefender free is needed on Samsung phones.
