Android...

To be brief, even though malicious software DOES exist in Android, you’ll literally be fine without it... Just install from the Google Play Store only. There are times when a suspicious app makes it through to the store, but if common sense tells you to avoid it like very little to no downloads and zero reviews.

And of course, constantly checking permissions in your settings.

I have Malwarbytes for malware checks, Avast Mobile for antivirus, and Kaspersky Internet Security for Andriod on my phone. All free for basic versions, which is what I use. Probably overkill, but they're free. I run them about once a month. Have never had an issues. I downloaded them from Google Playstore.

I use Malwarebytes. Free. For some unsubstantiated reasons, I do not trust cell phone security. I refuse to use bank or financial apps on my phone. Asked
my daughters not to either.
There’s something called two-factor authentication..... Enabling this increases security dramatically.
