    "Bitdefender Security & Antivirus is pretty well-known for catching malicious apps other scanners might miss, but the best part about it is that it's so lightweight you can let it run all the time. The detector uses cloud scanning and is always up-to-date, and when it's checking your downloads or running apps you won't notice any decrease in performance. It's easy on the battery, too. "
