Not sure you need one but if you really do want to be sure (about virus protection) I have used the 'AVG for mobiles' which is a free app available via the Android Market. AVG offer very good a/v programs for PC's and have a decent reputation.

According to recent reports on this subject in the technical press then none of them work well enough to warrant the use.

Better to have some protection then none at all. Have you search Android market for anti virus and checked reviews/number of downloads?

You should also be checking your security settings i.e.

  1. Not allowing unauthorised apps
  2. Not remembering passwords
  3. Avoiding usage of open wifi connections
  4. Checking what permissions your downloaded apps are asking for

Using avg too so far seems efficient to me.

There's a write up on this in the latest edition of PCA. AVG doesn't score well. Apparently Avast is one of the better free ones.

I use Avast. Seems to work well. I don't know it is there.

I use McAfee after it came top in PCA tests. The price has gone up to £24.99 now, on test it was £18.00!!!!! Seems to be working OK on my Motorola Defy+ though.
