    Other than not visiting porn sites and installing apps only from the Google Play Store, what can Android users do to protect themselves? Is any antivirus app sufficient?

    Any AV app is a whole lot better than nothing.

    I use AVG AntiVirus. Hope it's enough. Really, no way to tell.

    Kind of seems funny, doesn't appear to be anything but a prank or joke app, from reading article most people would treat this as they would if they forgot their pin and couldn't get past lock screen, factory reset.
