Do I need to install antivirus software on my Lenovo tablet?

by on February 21, 2013

Q: I just purchased a Lenovo tablet do I have to have anti virus and spyware protection for this as I do for my regular pc? And if so what would be a good free program?

    Judy,
    Currently It is not as important to have Antivirus on an Android OS as it is on a Windows OS (This could change in the future). With that in mind it never hurts to have the layer of protection in place just in case, Especially if you’re going to be visiting sites that may carry viruses/spyware.

    There are a bunch of free AV apps in the marketplace/Play store. I personally use Lookout on my mobile device.
    Enjoy!
