Malwarebytes brings security software to Android smartphones & tablets

Popular anti-virus software maker Malwarebytes has launched a new anti-malware app for Android after months of testing.

The app is free to download from Google Play and protects Android devices from threats including phishing emails, malicious applications and Trojan malware.

The app comes equipped with an anti-virus scanner as well as a host of other security features, including an application manager and a privacy manager which enables users to see which apps violate their privacy.

As a further bonus, the Malwarebytes application immediately scans files for malware and spyware when users open their email.

Malwarebytes is more commonly associated with Windows but its arrival on Android is good news, especially for a platform riddled with security concerns. A report in August found that Android malware had spiked 40% alone in the second quarter.
