1. Avast Antivirus And Security
When it comes to virus protection, Avast undoubtedly is the best free antivirus out there in the market.It comes with many features pre-installed in the app.
It scans your apps to private data on what they are doing & how much load they are putting on your smartphone.It also has a Web Shield that scans URL to detect various malwares.
There are various types of features included in the app like a call-blocker for blacklisting unwanted numbers, an app- locker to PIN protect your private apps, it also has WiFi scanning options to improve speed and security.Unfortunately, the free version of the app only allows two apps for app locking, you can unlock this feature fully by subscribing to the ‘Pro’ version, which also removes ads & gives you support access from the App directly.
There’s also a firewall for the rooted device, that allows you to control network traffic.
Avast is a total antivirus & security solution for any smartphone owner to have.
Glasswire is a transparent security app which lets you see a live graph of which apps are consuming your data. Also, you will get alerts to let you know which new app is consuming more data than others.
It’s a great way to see any strange activity which is happening in the background.Glasswire’s main use is to make sure you don’t overload your data capacity while also monitoring your smartphone.
LastPass probably is the last app (pun) you’ll ever need for password management.
LastPass is one of the safest & secure password manager app available out there. The app lets you store site passwords, PIN’s & other sensitive information for quick access by you.
Your all information is hidden behind a master password of your choice. It’s a lot safer than putting that information almost anywhere else. The free version is just as good as it’s paid version, except the paid version lets you have some additional features like syncing option & more.
