Scan and remove viruses from your Android.

Antivirus Security - FREE is an app that is ideal for scanning your phone to see if there are any viruses that are present and getting rid of them before they can do any damage. One of the best things about the app is that it can run in the background while you're using the phone, alerting you if there are any issues that arise. If the virus is one that is small, then the app can go ahead and get rid of it without you knowing. However, if there are larger viruses, then you'll be sent a notice asking what you want to do with the virus before further action is taken.

This is an app that is helpful if you are on the internet for long periods of time during the day, especially if you are on social media sites or if you send a lot of messages as these are the top methods of contracting a virus on the phone. There are options with Antivirus Security - FREE that allow you to do a quick scan to see if there are any viruses that are easy to detect as well as a detailed scan that will look into your system further.

  • CAMERA: Required to be able to access the camera device.
  • GET_ACCOUNTS: Allows access to the list of accounts in the Accounts Service.
  • READ_CALL_LOG: Allows an application to read the user's call log.
  • READ_CONTACTS: Allows an application to read the user's contacts data.
  • READ_EXTERNAL_STORAGE: Allows an application to read from external storage.
  • READ_PHONE_STATE: Allows read only access to phone state, including the phone number of the device, current cellular network information, the status of any ongoing calls, and a list of any PhoneAccounts registered on the device.
  • READ_SMS: Allows an application to read SMS messages.
  • RECEIVE_SMS: Allows an application to receive SMS messages.
  • SEND_SMS: Allows an application to send SMS messages.
  • WRITE_CALENDAR: Allows an application to write the user's calendar data.

Other permissions

  • ACCESS_NETWORK_STATE: Allows applications to access information about networks.
  • ACCESS_WIFI_STATE: Allows applications to access information about Wi-Fi networks.
  • BATTERY_STATS: Allows an application to collect battery statistics
  • BIND_ACCESSIBILITY_SERVICE: Must be required by an AccessibilityService, to ensure that only the system can bind to it.
  • BLUETOOTH: Allows applications to connect to paired bluetooth devices.
  • BLUETOOTH_ADMIN: Allows applications to discover and pair bluetooth devices.
  • CHANGE_WIFI_STATE: Allows applications to change Wi-Fi connectivity state.
  • CLEAR_APP_CACHE: Allows an application to clear the caches of all installed applications on the device.
  • DISABLE_KEYGUARD: Allows applications to disable the keyguard if it is not secure.
  • GET_PACKAGE_SIZE: Allows an application to find out the space used by any package.
  • GET_TASKS: This constant was deprecated in API level 21. No longer enforced.
  • INSTALL_SHORTCUT: Allows an application to install a shortcut in Launcher.

  • RECEIVE_BOOT_COMPLETED: Allows an application to receive the ACTION_BOOT_COMPLETED that is broadcast after the system finishes booting. If you don't request this permission, you will not receive the broadcast at that time. Though holding this permission does not have any security implications, it can have a negative impact on the user experience by increasing the amount of time it takes the system to start and allowing applications to have themselves running without the user being aware of them. As such, you must explicitly declare your use of this facility to make that visible to the user.

  • SYSTEM_ALERT_WINDOW: Allows an app to create windows using the type TYPE_SYSTEM_ALERT, shown on top of all other apps. Very few apps should use this permission; these windows are intended for system-level interaction with the user.
