Previously a five star app, the constant crashing on Android 8, requiring the app to be restarted, and always open in the background, has relegated it to Norton for Windows status. Utter cunting tripe at the moment. Yes, we know that the issue is with Oreo, don't need to hear that again, just get it fixed, and whilst you are at it, the heuristics need some significant tweaking. One star.
November 23, 2017Thank you for your comment. The upcoming version of our app will fix some Oreo issues. Your Sophos Mobile Team
Fantastic security from Sophos for Android. This app is ideal for parental control as well as protecting your device and email from any malware or PUA'S. no advertising either like you get with Avast and some other free Android Antivirus software. If you want a free AV for Android this is the one to use. I'm not sure if they have a paid version or if there's anyway to donate to the free version, but this app is definitely worth donating towards. I use Kaspersky on one computer and Comodo firewall with Kaspersky free AV on another system. I'm going to try Sophos on my laptop along with Voodooshield for extra zero day protection.
This is a feature rich Antivirus, easy to navigate, and runs easily in the background. I love it. This should be what pops up first when searching the Play Store for an Antivirus app . Superb scores across the board from AV Testing. This excerpt is from Digital Trends: "There are a lot of really good Android security apps out there, but you’ll be hard-pressed to find one that offers this many features, scores a 100 percent detection rate for malware in real-time, and costs absolutely nothing." Also, Sophos Home for PC is the best Antivirus I have ever had the pleasure of using. It beats out most of the free AV Software out there. Have on all my computers. Sophos is a must.
I love this app. Lightweight and does what it says on the tin. Had a few issues on and off with the "low reputation app" warning about clearly popular apps but otherwise superb. I have one request though - could you get in touch with Barclays and get them to detect this is installed in their banking app as it tells me I have no AV installed. Thanks.
Great package as a whole and being Ad free is the clincher. Like most security apps Sophos could greatly benefit from the convenience of a Smart Unlock feature like Bit Defenders which is awesome for audio junkies like myself who finds having to unlock the phone repeatedly tiresome when just trying to listen to music or podcasts. Hopefully this feature will be added some time and will be a 5 star worthy addition. Smart Unlock removes the need for screen locking on secure home networks for anybody wondering.
Froze during manual scan after update. Then did it again after restart. Then, froze during feedback (twice). Prompted me couple of times to enable web filtering (which was enabled - somehow it was disabled on its own ?!?). I may change rating after I find out if it works at all. Update: Froze 3rd time in a row... UNINSTALL .
Reputation issues? Lately this app has been flagging a vast majority of my added apps as low reputation. These are apps I've had all along and are generally considered very safe. All other functions of the app are great. Documentation says you can submit an app for review but these are popular apps. I'm more inclined to belive something is amiss in the low reputation process.
