Protect your Android devices against malware and other threats The market dominance of Android devices and the inherent openness of Android led to the proliferation of malware and Potentially Unwanted Applications (PUA). SophosLabs detected over a million new pieces of malware in 2014 alone, and the growth rate is accelerating. Malware can lead to data loss, reputation loss, additional costs, and reduced performance.

Protection and performanceThe Sophos Mobile Security antivirus app protects your Android devices without compromising performance or battery life.

Sophos Mobile Security’s consistent performance has earned recognition from independent testing agencies including AV-Test.
Malware protectionOur Sophos Mobile Security antivirus app protects your Android devices with proactive identification of malware. Your apps are automatically scanned for malware as you install them. Sophos includes protection for PUAs and low-reputation apps—new apps that have no known history and may pose a threat. PUAs include adware, rootkits, diallers, and any association the app may have to previous malicious behaviour such as a certificate that has been compromised.
Web protectionSurf securely on the internet from your Android device. Sophos Mobile Security checks all websites against a SophosLabs database for known malicious sites and prevents users from accessing them.
App protectionSome apps on your phone contain more sensitive data than others. App Protection allows admins to enable a second level of authentication with an additional password.
Privacy Advisor and Security AdvisorThe Privacy Advisor analyses all installed apps for potential privacy breaches such as attempts to access your personal data like your contacts. The Security Advisor analyses your settings and advises you on ways to increase your security.
