    an FYI... a lot of android devices also have AV's built into them. My Huawei tablet uses Avast in the Tablet Manager apk, and 'Device Care' (under 'Settings") on my Samsung Galaxy uses McAfee.
    ...obviously they only run when you run the app, but they're still there by default.

    Technically, Play Protect is also kind of an antivirus. It hashes APKs, and checks against google for potentially "malicious" applications.

    Though, it's far more likely to bitch at you for having root-mode tools installed like SELinux mode changers or other useful things (read: :)) than anything malicious. They might as well call it an antiuserfreedomscanner.

    I don't see a point of using Anti-Viruses on Phones. I also don't use an Anti-Virus on my PC because 1. I don't know which one is good and 2. I want to live wild. (Please don't hack me.)

    I don't bother with an antivirus these days. I run Linux and don't execute questionable files. Phones and game consoles don't need an antivirus because everything is locked down. They're designed to even be invulnerable to evil maid attacks, though only the Xbox One X actually managed to succeed here.
