I use Lookout Mobile Security. I have used Avast, AVG, Webroot, Norton, Mcaffee and some others. They all seemed to work pretty much the same but some used more resources then others.  The least intrusive in my opinion (in order) are Lookout, Webroot, Avast, AVG, Mcaffee, Norton, but really any of these will do the job and keep you protected.

There are multiple apps out there.  I have tried Lookout, AVG and McAfee to name a few.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

MalwareBytes. Just on the one-off (bi-yearly) check. No need to have real time monitoring running unless you sideload applications all the time.
