When I bought Avast, it mentioned anti virus for mobile devices. Do you have one? I'm using android... Thanks.
Anti Virus for Phones?

I do not.
You need to actively install something on your phone, and as long as you use a reputable one, you will typically be fine. Don't simply download an app from a link or the web. If a webpage pushes you to download their app, simply close out of the page. This happens to me the most when looking at something on Facebook. Most of the time, it is a malicious popup ad. This advice isn't always foolproof as you CAN get a bad app from the Play Store, or even Amazon, but typically those are odd apps based from China or Russia. Read the reviews and don't download a new/flyby app and you should be fine.
If you ever do get a virus on your phone, a simple reset back to factory settings will clear it off...and may improve your phone's responses. Even good apps can have memory leaks after a bad update.

The app used to be paid but is now free, supported by ads. You can pay a small monthly or yearly premium to remove these. Another very useful premium feature is ‘in-app locking’ whereby your device will ask for a PIN before opening certain apps. This prevents malware from launching apps such as internet banking automatically.
Meanwhile, there're another 9 best Android antivirus app, you could compare them and choose final idea one.
