    "This highly rated antivirus can help protect your phone, but you probably won't have much luck if your phone does get hacked. Hackers are very good at hiding their identities, so it's pretty hard for any one app to get around that."

    "A good and easy to use security device to see who is attacking your device via wi-fi. It gives customized alerts in real time and alerts you to anything suspicious going on. It runs smoothly in the background and is a nice safety blanket. "

    "Okay, so I used Avast ten years ago, but deleted it when I discovered that it was actually tracking and recording my Internet usage. I don't know if this has changed, but probably not, since it is still free to download (who is paying for the free monitoring, hmmm?) and has many functions for tracing usage on your phone, which probably means that you are not the only one who can access that information. Being tracked may not bother some people, but if you don't like that, then think twice before engaging Avast."

    "McAfee Mobile security doesn't give you any way to find out who hacked your phone. It helped me find a lost phone, but it's totally clueless as to who hacked the thing."
