Hmm, was looking at Bitdefender, I know they are pretty good with computers, anyone use them for their phone?

https://market.android.com/details?id=com.bitdefender.security&feature=search_result

I know the census is pretty much torn, some people say AV is a waste saying being Linux based its not really needed and some people swear by it. I dunno, i thought just watching what was downloaded was good enough.

Opinions? Suggestions? Devs? ( u guys prob have the most experience with this type of stuff), Better safe than sorry? :_con: :erm (1):

I know malware filled apps are out there, if programs like these are really necessary ... is a good question. My wife found an app that had malware. It installed random bs apps and really slowed down her phone. Uninstall the app / apps and the problem is gone. I am yet to hear of anything that would / could do actual damage to a phone to warrant the need for a "AV"
see and I know there are phishing and malware, but haven't heard of a macro, worm, trojan etc for phones. Also an app lke lookout runs 10-20mbs of ram. yikes

True, its suppose to be "passive" according to the advertisement only activating when you open it. It simply scans the apps and the SD card primarily. I'll run in for a few days and report back.

bump on the Devs opinion?
