Avast Mobile
« on: March 03, 2015, 11:51:19 AM »

Firstly, I have been told that there has never been an instance where an androind mobile phone has been infected with a virus.  Is this true or not??

Secondly, If I want to run a virus scan on my mobile, how do I go about it.

Do I download on my computer and then connect the mobile to the computer and run the test?
Do I download on my computer and then download it to my mobile?
Do I download straight to my mobile?  If so will it install and run ok.
What is the best way??

Not true.

Install a av on the phone and run a scan (follow the instructions of the av)

Download and install it directly on the phone.
