    VTS for Android is a free open source app which can check your phone or tablet for 22 known device vulnerabilities, alerting you to any potential problems.

    Installation can be awkward. Avast warned us that the app was malware, apparently because of its Stagefright detection code.
    This is an open source project from a known and trusted developer, though, so it looks to us like the kind of false alarm you often get with security tools (check out the GitHub page and developer’s site if you need to find out more).
