Recommended security install for Android devices

Hi Guys 

 

I'm interested in what people consider a standard install required to protect your android devices.

What Anti Virus,  What Ad blocker and any other software people install when looking to secure an Android device.

 

Having a Windows background you get told to keep your AV up-to date and apply security patches but what applies to the Android environment?

There is no need to install any AV and other nonsense like this. If you power up the security of your smartphone the first step is to root your phone and than you can use Xprivacy and AFwall+. One more option is to install a antiteft App like Cerberus but that's it = You don't need more!

Always keep a device that is supported by google so that it may receive monthly security patches and there will be no need for you to do anything extra at all other than accept the updates every month and make sure you only download apps from Google Play and the "allow unknown sources" stays off so a rogue website doesn't install a shady APK onto your device..
