About this app

Take Bitdefender’s award-winning antivirus protection with you!

Bitdefender's Antivirus Free is a powerful and fast solution that uses in-the-cloud scanning technology to arm your Android device with the very latest industry leading virus detection. Without slowing down your Android or draining your battery. Simply install on your Android and it’s ready to go—nothing to configure.

And it's totally free!

Unparalleled Detection
Autopilot automatically scans any new apps that are downloaded to your Android device for viruses. Antivirus Free uses the same scanning engines as Bitdefender Mobile Security-our flagship mobile security app that has been independently certified to catch more than 99% of all viruses targeted at Android devices. This powerful scanner keeps you protected 24/7 against malicious activities.

Feather-Light Performance
Instead of downloading and storing virus signatures directly to Android devices, Antivirus Free uses in-the-cloud services to check online for the latest safeguards to outbreaks. This not only results in super-fast scans, but in close to zero impact on battery life and device performance.

Hassle-Free Operation
Don't worry. Ever. You can sleep but Autopilot, a smart on-install scanner that checks all apps for suspicious activity, won't. Threats and viruses are blocked before any damage is done.

Zero Configuration
Bitdefender Antivirus Free offers you essential antivirus protection against all Android threats. It is ready to go right after installation, acting as an effective guardian against mobile malware. Moreover, the Autopilot automatically scans any new apps you install.

Upgrade to Total Security for Android Devices
Upgrade to Bitdefender Mobile Security, and you’ll not only continue to enjoy the same features as above, but also gain an array of additional cutting-edge capabilities. They include the real-time scanning of pages you're viewing online, as well as the ability to lock, locate, and wipe your Android device in case it becomes lost or stolen.

Super fast virus scanner, but the tradeoff is that it requires an online connection to scan your device. I like the fact that the free version will automatically check both newly installed apps and existing updates. If you're looking for a lite scanner that's not bloated with a lot of junk like app killers, battery savers, etc., you may want to consider this one. Bitdefender has had high ratings and a good reputation for as long as I can remember.

If you have an Android phone you need this app. It's the best protection for free. One caveat: I used Bitdefenders paid security package last year. I found all the loops I had to jump through to make it work extremely difficult. I'm not a tech savvy guy. Bitdefender👉I love your product and would gladly purchase your enhanced security program IF you'd just make it easier to use.

This is the second day recently (maybe in a row) that I have woken up and the app isn't running/isn't in the notification area. I checked up time and the phone did not reboot, though even if it did the app should have restarted with it. I will see if I can send logs from the app. UPDATE Behavior continues. Left beta program to see if that fixes it. Fingers crossed.
