    You can easily protect your device from virus.You should install antivirus in your device.Google Play Store provides lot of antivirus which could easily protect your device from virus,malware,malicious software etc.Some antivirus are free & some are paid,paid antivirus give full version which free antivirus doesn't.Antivirus will be updated time to time.Below I have mentioned some of the best antivirus names:-
    • Lookout Mobile security & antivirus
    • NQ Mobile security & antivirus
    • Zoner antivirus
    • Norton Antivirus
    • Android antivirus
    • Avast antivirus
    • Antivirus free
    • Mobile antivirus security pro

    dear friend

    dont worry about this problem
    to solve this problem follow some steps
    1 go to the play store
    2 then search for an antivirus
    3 then install it after downloading
    4 now download any app in your device
    now everytime you install a new app it will first scan it
    and then install it

    hope this will help you

    There are some good antivirus apps available for android, but most of the apps are useless.
    So if you want to be safe then it will be better that does not download any app from unsafe
    sources. Always use a Virus free sources. If you will download it from entrusted sources then
    the app may contain some malware that can harm your device or may send your data to any
    third party. So be safe and does not make a download from these site.

    But if you want to use a antivirus then you can download following:-
    1. NetQuin Antivirus
    2. AVG Android Protection
