Surprisingly, in the year 2014, millions of threats were found in Android smartphones and Tablets. We could say that mobile malware is in full progress. It has plenty of possibilities: the sending of expensive SMS, spy on user data, taking over of Facebook or Twitter accounts or even annoying you with unwanted advertisement.

In 2015, the threats are still going on, but now they are tougher to detect and to avoid. If you want to be well protected, you need a good Android antivirus app, but which is the best App?

What is the price of mobile security?

In this big test, this time we’ve only chosen a few paid Antivirus apps, since all the big PC Security software manufacturers also offer their own Antivirus apps, but for free.

How to Get Rid of (Delete) Android Viruses?

Android is a very flexible operating system. Compared to competing platforms like iOS and Windows Phone, it gives more freedom of action to the user, but this evident advantage means taking some more risks about informatics safety.

The opportunity to install apps from external sources, “outside” the Google Play Store, and the pretty wide spread of the operating system (it’s the most used platform in the world, as regards smartphones) has meant that Android attracted some unpleasant attentions from cybercriminals, who create malwares aimed to spy the users’ activities, collecting their data and sometimes activating some very expensive premium services by SMS.

To protect yourself from this kind of risk, you need to use your own smartphone/tablet wisely, avoiding downloads of apps from external sources (but it must be said that sometimes, viruses have been found even on the Play Store, disguised as innocuous games or apps) and, if possible, installing a good antivirus: there are many of them, even for free, without slowing the system down at all, and getting to guarantee a great level of protection. If you want, I can suggest you some of the best ones around and teach you how to delete Android viruses by using them. It won’t take long, I promise.

Before selling any computer, smartphone or tablet, it is essential to protect your privacy by formatting the device. Formatting – as you surely know already – is a process by which you delete all files on a drive keeping it serviceable.

Be careful though: simple formatting is not enough. To make sure that your old data has been truly deleted and cannot be subsequently recovered with some specialist software (like the ones I mentioned in the tutorial on how to recover photos on Android), you need to overwrite all the empty space on the drive using a process called “wiping”.

I know that it may seem like a tricky thing to do – a prerogative of experienced users – but it really is not so. In order to prove it, I will now explain how to format Android and how to “wipe” a smartphone or a tablet using some free apps. I bet you will be surprised by how simple it is!

Preliminary operations


Before formatting your device, save a backup copy of all its files and apps. There are a lot of apps suitable for the purpose, and I will point some out to you right away:

  • Titanium Backup (Need Root)- the best app for backups on Android devices. It saves apps and data on external or internal storage. I have explained how to use it in quite some detail in my guide about how to backup Android.
  • EasyBackup – another backup app, less powerful than Titanium but works without root access. You can find info and instructions on how to use it in the post about Android backup I have just linked.
  • SMS Backup & Restore – Excellent free app that lets you back up all text messages saved on your phone.

Speaking about text messages, I must point out my post on how to re-install WhatsApp where I have shown you the proper steps to save WhatsApp chats and restore them if necessary
