Good Morning how do I scan for Malware and Virus if I don't have the app protection future on my phone, suspected phone Sim Swap or would a regular company do this?

If you don't have the app protection feature in Device care you you can download a Virus Protection from the playstore like Norton, Avast, McAfee or Malwarebytes you can also check with your carrier to see if they have a sim protection notification and if they have a virus software they provide

Go into Security and Privacy and turn on Auto Blocker. Possibly run App Protection too.

It's built in to all the phones AFAIK, but you can always download any virus scanning app and run a scan, many are free with limited features, but most are reasonably priced if you want full features.

But I don't think that the carriet can actually prevent you from downloading a different one. I use Malwarebytes since I bought it for my computer and it includes three devices and I had one going to waste, I decided to put it on my phone. But then again I also have an unlocked phone.

No they don't block you from download others that's why I told him above he could use 

"Norton, Avast, McAfee or Malwarebytes you can also check with your carrier to see if they have a sim protection notification and if they have a virus software they provide"

@GaryB82 my bad, I just skipped right over that sentence 😀. In any case, I only reiterated what you said, so it's like a seconded motion.
