do i need an antivirus for my android tablet and if so what do i use.
I use Antivirus Free. I scans installs and downloads and uses very little resources. As for the "need"? I have never found anything and I'm not sure there is anything to find. I have been watching this thread hoping for an answer too. I would say use Antivirus Free or another free one until someone actually confirms a need at all.
A forum search for the term "antivirus" will bring up lots of articles like this one: http://www.androidtablets.net/forum...nearly-1-8-home-networks-infected-report.html
Lookout and AVG free are both very popular.
Amazon.com: Lookout Mobile Security: Appstore for Android
Amazon.com: Antivirus: Appstore for Android

Hope help to give some tips on it.
Thank you all for your help and replies
I would either get AVG, Norton, or kaspersky. I would also get MalwareBytes and do a full system scan every week.
Paid antivirus is more powerful.I used to use free antivirus,however,it can't detect the virus exactly .Since I bought Norton 360 ,I never worried about virus or Trojans,or other threatens.
I have norton on my laptops, wounder if I can use it on the tablet.
