Do I Need an Antivirus

JUMP TO SOLUTION

Hi. I just bought a Samsung Galaxy s7 Edge and love it. Do I need an antivirus for it or is it reasonably protected as long as I stay in the Google Play Store and practise reasonable precautions (i.e. not clicking on links in unknown emails, text messages and so forth)? I know a lot of AV companies push their mobile plans but frankly I'm unconvinced that they're necessary. I have Lastpass Premium so I don't need a password manager. Your input would be appreciated.

I think you already know what to avoid and be safe. As long as you do not visit sites of questionable quality, and do what you mentioned, you will be fine and do not need a AV softwre. 

I also would recomend using chrome as your browser. Google Chrome many times has told me that a site I tried to navigate to is unsafe.

the latest version of Android is so advanced in security. if you have some important files then download one for sure. don't download anything out of play store to be on safe side.
