Free antivirus app for Samsung smartphones
More people than ever are almost constantly online, and we’re increasingly using our mobile devices to shop and bank when on the go. However, mobile threats are also increasing — with Android banking Trojans in particular on the rise. Using a variety of increasingly sophisticated methods, they attempt to obtain banking and credit card details or other sensitive information. Their tactics include disguising themselves as legitimate apps or as security updates, injecting malware that can be used to access your personal data.
This makes it all the more important to equip your smartphone and tablet with a powerful virus scanner like our Samsung antivirus app to protect your device and personal data from a variety of malware types such as Trojans, viruses, ransomware, spyware, and adware. The Android app Avira Antivirus Security can detect not only widespread Android malware types but also the latest mobile threats in real time.
More than just antivirus
Compared to the Google Play Protect malware protection service, which comes preinstalled and activated on Samsung smartphones, our Samsung antivirus app offers more than just virus protection. In addition to numerous optimization tools, it includes many additional features such as a VPN, a network scanner, a breach monitor, and a permissions manager for checking your apps’ access permissions.
In addition, Avira’s Samsung antivirus app is significantly better at protecting your smartphone than Google Play Protect. According to the experts at AV-TEST, in September 2021 Google’s Android utility only protected against 71.2% of the latest malware attacks in real time. It also failed to impress when it came to detecting widespread Android malware, achieving a rate of just 72.4%. In comparison, the Samsung virus protection app Avira Antivirus Security detected 99.8% of the latest malware attacks and 100% of widespread Android malware. The upshot was that Google Play Protect scored 0 points in AV-Test’s protection category, while Avira Antivirus Security once again achieved the maximum of 6 points for that category and across all others.
SafetyDetectives also awarded our Samsung virus protection app Avira Antivirus Security the accolade of the best free antivirus app for Android in 2021: “All malware files were detected, blocked, and removed from my Samsung Galaxy S20. For real-time malware protection, Avira’s free Android app offers many more features than the competition. Avira’s free plan is by far the best available.”

Do Samsung devices come with virus protection?
Yes. The Google Play Protect malware protection service is pre-installed and activated on Samsung smartphones by default, but it is far from up to the job.

Is extra virus protection necessary for Samsung smartphones?
Yes. Many experts are of the view that the pre-installed Android protection on Samsung smartphones isn’t up to scratch, so we strongly recommend you install additional malware protection on your Samsung smartphone or tablet. Download Avira Antivirus Security for Android to protect your sensitive data and information from threats and enjoy a host of many additional features alongside advanced virus protection.
