    There are antivirus programs available on the market but I don't use one. I feel that they are useless. The reason why is this:



    When you install an Android app, it asks you for permission to do certain functions on your phone. So as long as you keep an eye on what permissions an app is asking for you should be ok.



    I have a couple of threads about permissions and trojans that give more information on what to look out for.

    I don't use a smartphone (yet.. I joined this site to learn more about the Ally) but I work for a 3rd party company that sells Verizon Wireless. When our Verizon rep came in I asked him about anti-virus. He said not to get it. Apparently the phones come with an anti-virus program installed to protect the phone from apps.

    The Ally does not have a pre-installed anti-virus program.
