If your tablet computer is able to handle an antivirus program (some OS devices do not apply), you should be on the lookout for quality programs. Just as your laptop or desktop is able to become infected with viruses; your tablet also is a target.
Take a look at your tablet PC to see what options you may have. Here are four of the top antivirus programs for tablet computers.
- AVG Free
AVG is a leading provider of antivirus software. This is the same program that you would be able to use on your laptop or desktop. If it is available for your tablet computer, you might want to consider it.
- McAfee VirusScan Mobile
Another leader in computer protection, this offering from McAfee is made especially for wireless devices. It also offers protection for emails, instant messaging and other useful features. For instance, are your tablet computer’s SMS, MMS, Bluetooth, and other entry points protected? This is a program that will take care of that.
- AVG Mobilation
Smartphone and tablet users can take advantage of this antivirus program. There is also a dedicated version for Android users. If it applies to your device, it is definitely worth a look.
- Avast Free Antivirus
Another free program, Avast has become a prime competitor in the world of antivirus software. You will notice that this program is also available for standard computers, as opposed to other antivirus applications specifically for a certain OS (again, some tablets have operating systems which limit these types of programs). This is a great choice if it is available for your tablet.
