“Since computer software has been around, people have been finding ways to attack it by through vulnerabilities or through targeting users,” said Marcin Kleczynski, CEO of Malwarebytes. “The Android mobile operating system is no different. Its success in the consumer space—and its openness—has made it a huge target for malware authors.”

To protect Android-powered devices, Malwarebytes recently rolled out a free security app called Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Mobile. This free app will detect and eliminate malware, will scan your apps for malicious code, will uncover security vulnerabilities, will identify apps that track your location, and will stop unauthorized access to your personal data.

Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Mobile - Main Features
  • Free mobile security application for Android devices.
  • Protects against malware, infected apps and unauthorized surveillance.
  • Automatically recognizes security vulnerabilities in your phone's settings.
  • Finds out what private information is being accessed by your apps.

Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Mobile gives you just the features you need. Other security apps for Android let you locate your device for example. That is something that comes in handy if you lose your mobile. But the thing is that you don’t need a security app to do that, not when you can you can easily track your mobile’s location with Android Device Manager.

Features that you already get from Android Device Manager (locate, remote lock, remote wipe, ring your device) are not covered by Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Mobile. This way the app remains light and does not negatively impact your phone’s performance.
