Yes. Although less common, Android and iOS devices can still get viruses despite their built-in phone security. Threats like viruses and malware can enter through various external sources, such as third-party applications, malicious websites, and iMessage links, which pose a risk to the safety and security of your device.
Given this potential risk, your mobile device certainly benefits from having antivirus protection. A security app offers additional layers of defense against malicious software and works hand-in-hand with the security measures already built into your phone's operating system. Together with the protective measures integrated into your phone's operating system and secure VPN functionalities, these security apps assist you in detecting and steering clear of potential threats as you browse and use various online services.
Moreover, purchasing a mobile subscription offers the added advantage of securing multiple devices, including your laptop and desktop. This way, not only your mobile but also other digital platforms where you store sensitive information can be protected under a single subscription, which can cover up to five devices.
To safeguard your mobile device, Android users can download the McAfee Privacy & Security app from the Google Play store, while Apple users can find it on the App Store. Ensure a safer digital experience by installing the app and following the on-screen instructions.
