requires following permissions on your android device.

precise location (GPS and network-based)
Allows the app to get your precise location using the Global Positioning System (GPS) or network location sources such as cell towers and Wi-Fi. These location services must be turned on and available to your device for the app to use them. Apps may use this to determine where you are, and may consume additional battery power.

view network connections
Allows the app to view information about network connections such as which networks exist and are connected.

view Wi-Fi connections
Allows the app to view information about Wi-Fi networking, such as whether Wi-Fi is enabled and name of connected Wi-Fi devices.

directly call phone numbers
Allows the app to call phone numbers without your intervention. This may result in unexpected charges or calls. Note that this doesn't allow the app to call emergency numbers. Malicious apps may cost you money by making calls without your confirmation.

take pictures and videos
Allows the app to take pictures and videos with the camera. This permission allows the app to use the camera at any time without your confirmation.

connect and disconnect from Wi-Fi
Allows the app to connect to and disconnect from Wi-Fi access points and to make changes to device configuration for Wi-Fi networks.

delete all app cache data
Allows the app to free phone storage by deleting files in the cache directories of other applications. This may cause other applications to start up more slowly as they need to re-retrieve their data.

Allows access to the list of accounts in the Accounts Service.

measure app storage space
Allows the app to retrieve its code, data, and cache sizes

retrieve running apps
Allows the app to retrieve information about currently and recently running tasks. This may allow the app to discover information about which applications are used on the device.

full network access
Allows the app to create network sockets and use custom network protocols. The browser and other applications provide means to send data to the internet, so this permission is not required to send data to the internet.

close other apps
Allows the app to end background processes of other apps. This may cause other apps to stop running.

read Usage data
Provides access to device usage history and statistics. Usage data is aggregated into time intervals: days, weeks, months, and years.

read your contacts
Allows the app to read data about your contacts stored on your phone, including the frequency with which you've called, emailed, or communicated in other ways with specific individuals. This permission allows apps to save your contact data, and malicious apps may share contact data without your knowledge.

read the contents of your SD card
Allows the app to read the contents of your SD card.

read phone state
Allows read only access to phone state, including the phone number of the device, current cellular network information, the status of any ongoing calls, and a list of any PhoneAccounts registered on the device.

run at startup
Allows the app to have itself started as soon as the system has finished booting. This can make it take longer to start the phone and allow the app to slow down the overall phone by always running.

draw over other apps
Allows the app to draw on top of other applications or parts of the user interface. They may interfere with your use of the interface in any application, or change what you think you are seeing in other applications.

control vibration
Allows the app to control the vibrator.

prevent phone from sleeping
Allows the app to prevent the phone from going to sleep.

modify your contacts
Allows the app to modify the data about your contacts stored on your phone, including the frequency with which you've called, emailed, or communicated in other ways with specific contacts. This permission allows apps to delete contact data.

modify or delete the contents of your SD card
Allows the app to write to the SD card.

In-App billing
In-app Billing on Google Play provides a straightforward, simple interface for sending In-app Billing requests and managing In-app Billing transactions using Google Play.

receive data from Internet
Allows apps to accept cloud to device messages sent by the app's service. Using this service will incur data usage. Malicious apps could cause excess data usage.

    Nice work. Thinking outside of the hyper sphere and doing so with performance that excels.

  3. James Petrone-avatar

    I've used it. Deffently worth it. But there needs to be a scam scanning feature. Because those idiots need to be caught.

  4. Mitul Jadav-avatar

    App lock does not work properly, it shows number and name of app being locked but when u actually open those app it does not ask for password

  5. Ali Hassan-avatar

    Very good software. Thanks please add ignore button, to ignore app from threads.

  6. Thomas Darv'-avatar

    Too many apps on my phone... This one can close background apps yet it's not automated so it's another app with possible exploits :-(

  7. Cezary Rogacki-avatar

    Good, however engine updates can took ages.

  8. Tejas Tezz-avatar

    Need a lot of Improvements.App lock doesn't lock settings and this app itself. It doesn't scan downloaded files or to be installed apps. So it has some loop holes. Some settings are also not available for many devices. It also consumes a lot of battery. So improve it in next update. Good luck.

  9. Ali Max IntelJ-avatar

    I Can't update! Error code: -1102 ?

  10. Steve Smegner-avatar

    I have had several false positives for 'uncategorized' malware. Also it tells me engine needs to be updated but the update goes to 75% and never completes.

  15. Melena Melena-avatar

  16. REYJEAN MORDICE-avatar



    The Best Antimalware app that can reliably detect device threats, vulnerabilities etc. with other useful features and without annoying ads interrupting the scan etc. ! Useful & Helpful. Recommended . . .!. . .

  17. jamikhan jimi-avatar

    an exellent mobile security software. ... but its amazing that it stopped working sometimes and mobile turns off. i am wondered when it happened so. can anyone help me. ..... in addition to the existing issue.... it shows threat report but when i start rnning app, it shows " now threat found" .... ammmmmazzzzzziiinnnngggggg

  18. malachi93-avatar

    This app is the best of 20 plus ive tried. Maybe because its engineered by a Korean company to work with a Korean phone - i dont know. My phone battery gets an extra 20-40% each day with this app installed. It came recommended by one of the big tech companies.

  19. Allen Lash-avatar

    Fantastic antivirus non-intrusive drains very little battery. I love it. Tried other apps they weren't as good.

  20. celebi-avatar

    Perfect features like speed, real time scan and locking app. Working properly.... You don't need to spend money for Antivirus apps...

  21. Sujay Upamanyu-avatar

    I am able to update my v3 mobile security.pls hlp... Error code - 1102

  22. Brandy Love-avatar

    i have had multiple viruses on my Android phones & normally have to reset it to get them gone. i love V3 it works amazing + its 100% FREE. Had annoying ads randomly popping up on my screen & thanks to V3 i didn't have to reset my whole phone. i hate having to add all of my personal info back into my phone so i will never use any other mobile protection. HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT. I never take time to review apps but felt like other people should benefit too. Thanks 2 the developers!

  23. Pat Terson-avatar

    Seems to require too many permissions, HOWEVER, I was using Avast after my phone kept doing weird things without my permission, and all Avast seemed to do was find a threat in my phone AFTER it was installed, and things carried on installing without my permission - including things I'd uninstalled after Avast told me they were threats. V3 did a much more through scan of my phone and found all sorts of malware, including an app that I had suspected but wasn't sure about (an app called Total Recall, a call recording app).

  24. David Evans-avatar

    Excellent security app, top rated. I like the fact that is very low on resource usage. Keep up the great work, thank you.

  25. Kaidona Fegkari-avatar

    Kaidona Fegkari


    It works well, I have little complain about. I just wish it would update on its own. It's the only thing other free antivirus do that it doesn't. I accept the sacrifice for the amount of free resources it doesn't use compared to others in a similar class.

  26. Adam Francis-avatar

    Can you not add real time scanning and vulnerability scanning for p20 pro otherwise it would be five stars but without those two critical features it still falls behind the bigger names

  27. Todd B.-avatar

    Very slow at running scans. Not for me.

  28. Ken A Wright-avatar

    When utilizing your ( V3 Mobile Security ) simply because the Default App. has a great way for a referral to be activated from the address of your choice , until you can see your account and the rest of your status is available for you. Very good for long term success !

  29. Stephen Bramell-avatar

    Stephen Bramell


    Causes excessive battery drain. Constantly getting warnings from Android 9.0 Pie that this app is causing very high power consumption & battery drain. Forced to cancel subscription & uninstall. Shame, because this app ranked #1 Virus Bulletin's VB100 for Android.

  30. Sudipan Roy-avatar

    Everything is okey but need to make strong protection against web threat blocking it is not so rich and please add some features like contact backup, anti theft. And one more thing update this app many thing are not comfortable with latest Android versions.

  31. Atikul Islam Munna-avatar

    Atikul Islam Munna


    I installed this antivirus after checking the AV test result of January '19. And it's ranked as a top product for several times. Till now it's doing so good...Most comfortable and reliable antivirus software among I used so far...great job👍

  32. HK Federation-avatar

    Solid security app. Prevents malicious apps from being installed. Useful flashlight and QR reader features.

  35. Nefarious Pixel Blood-avatar

    Nefarious Pixel Blood


    great with one flaw, i cant add an app to ignore list or cant find an ignore list or there is no ignore list. gladly give this 5*s if there were one. ... dropped raiting to 3 stars after confirming that developers ignore customers.

  36. Gym cartor-avatar

    it needs each and every info about you, including all of your device, location, contacts and a lot more, and you can not even configure these options As All the options can not be denied by this anti viris.

  37. Nishit Joshi-avatar

    Not working. 98% of the apps including avast, avg, norton don't work on phones or tablet. I haven't seen any app that scans the notifications. I want V3 Mobile Security developers to think what I am talking about ?

  38. eitan y-avatar

    well I hadn't had any problems with it. it doesn't drain battery so much. There was a problem with updating but it was fixed. basically it runs in the background.

  39. JUST JUST-avatar

    Best AntiVirus program available (for android)! - uses very little system resources and gives the end user informed upfront choices wirhout the usual dark undercurrent of ads baggage and attatched cr@p that so many other apps have - Five Stars V3! 👉 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟👍

  40. A Google user-avatar

    every time i start the scan manually......some times i forget to scan🙄......the other apps like norton,360....are also have schedule and smart scan option.....so pls update automatic scan option......😓

  41. Mark Dix-avatar

    This was my go to anti virus app, but the recent update has made it very intrusive for those paying for the service and that I am afraid means I'm jumping ship.

  42. Lahiru Rajinda-avatar

    used to be one of the best mobile av app. niw most of the features are disabled on Android pie and infested with Ads. Uninstalled.

  43. Cleavin Williams-avatar

  44. Ravi Kumar-avatar

    Excellent speed and minimum dats usage. The scan speed is amazing and its security level is also looking good.

  45. Eli Weitz-avatar

    Always first on any new (newly flashed) device. Love the way I can require a password for indiviual apps that don't have passwords.

  46. Marlon Roberts-avatar

    Good protection.. although there should be a "gaming/silent mode" where when people play a game, they won't be disturbed with opening applock whenever a message comes in.

  47. robert derham-avatar

    Great protection, and I have not noticed any change in the battery use.

  48. Joakim Döss-avatar

    The AV part works good but this program erased all my WhatsApp pictures!? It should be more informative what it does when cleaning.

  49. Stranga Strigo-avatar

    It never was able to update. Error 1102 won't go away. Looked promising otherwise!

  50. Paul Kwon-avatar

    Good! Since using this app, there isn't annoying google ads anymore!

  51. Dennis M-avatar

    Not also i really HATE that you cant stop the scanning process but uninstalling it is a NIGHTMARE!!!

  52. Ryan-avatar

    Being able to whitelist apps would be nice, it keeps detecting cerberus antitheft as malware when it really isn't.

  53. Balbir Bagga-avatar
