Your risk of downloading malware depends very much on the mobile platform that you use, as do your options for preventing it. No matter which smartphone or tablet you have, though, it’s probably a good idea to run at least some protection. Do you already use a security app? If not, will you download one after reading this article?

Everyone knows (or they should, by now) that you need an antivirus package on your desktop or laptop computer. There’s different kinds of nasty malware out there, and you need to be protected. But what about your smartphone or tablet? Does your Android phone need an antivirus? What about your iPad? or Windows Phone? The short answer is that yes, you probably need some sort of security app on your smartphone or tablet, because there are security vulnerabilities in these devices. But how likely you are to be faced with malware and what your options are for protection depend greatly on your device.
