Is antivirus software needed on an Android phone or tablet?
There are a lot of Antivirus apps available for Android devices (Avast, Lookout, etc.), but are they really necessary. From what I understand, the way Android works is very different from Windows and runs apps in a “sandbox,” so that there isn’t the same risk of viruses for Android as there is for Windows. Does this mean that I can safely save the storage space that would be used for an antivirus app for other uses?
