    "McAfee Mobile Security is a solid security analysis app. It is about as good as some of the other common ones on the market. It has all the basic features, and is easy to use with a pleasant interface. Lets you see which apps have which permissions, and protects you from security risks. Overall, I found it useful but not groundbreaking."

    "I use norton on my PC but don't want to use it on my phone. It's worked great on my PC but I've had problems with it in the past and if you try to uninstall it then that can be a nightmare. I don't want to mess up my phone with it. I wouldn't recommend."
