Recommending an antivirus is usually a dilemma, since most of them complicate the user more than repair the experience. So it's with Ever Security, the top 10 right now on Google Play.
Do you need an antivirus on Android? As an experienced user, I say not since there is no risk of getting infected with anything malicious if someone is guided by common sense . But, for some strange reason, many users think that their cell phone is like a PC and that, therefore, it needs an antivirus, although the operation of this software is different in computers and cell phones. Well, the motives are also no stranger, if we look at the case of Ever Security .
This is not the first time I see this meteoric rise of a supposed security application, it happens in an almost cyclical way. And the trigger often coincides: aggressive ad campaigns on mobile versions of websites that invite you to think that the user has a virus . You may have seen this ad on occasion: a full-screen alert that, after clicking it, takes you to a security application. In the case I detail today is about Ever Security.
Why Ever Security brings more problems than solutions?

just check the permissions to intuit that the application does not point to good manners. In fact, the list of accesses we give Ever Security involves controlling the accounts of our mobile device for reading the device ID. The amount of information you collect is very high something that does not need an antivirus. In addition, he insists on uploading ads on the phone.
Nothing new under the sun: the application offers so-called cleaning services responsible for uninstalling applications, managing RAM, or applying power-saving settings. Basically, the same as the rest of similar applications with the aggravating copy of the interface: a central button for analysis and extra options at the bottom of the screen . It even brings a CPU cooler, only with this you can intuit the security that gives Ever Security.
If you get a constant alert that you have a virus on your cell phone, do not pay attention: it's an advertisement. And never download the application to which you send it.
In addition to everything you do in the background, which we can not detect, applications of this style are responsible for sharing our data with unknown servers. In addition, adds ads to our cell phone : starting with the lock screen and also on the notification bar. They are applications that we have to escape like the plague: they do absolutely nothing against viruses or against malicious software. In fact, they tend to cause problems because of this.
If you plan to install an antivirus, make sure it works beforehand, as it should

I just reiterated the recommendation of not to install this type of applications : just do not download APKs of suspect origin and watch that the applications that we download from the Google Play Store are from recognized developers. And never install anything that comes from a "You have a virus on your phone" ad.
Although Android does not need an antivirus, not worrying about what we install can infect us with malware. We offer you apps that really protect.
The previous ones are antivirus that do what they promise and do not surpass the suspicious functions. But it is better that use your smartphone with maximum logic and head .
