360 Security – Antivirus FREE
Android App Review by AndroidAppsReview.com
360 Security is an all-in-one mobile security app for Android. Designed by the immensely successful developer Qihu 360 Software Co., LTD, 360 is basically a mini mobile version of the large 360 Desktop protection software. Interested in this app? Read on!
360 Security is a very capable and comprehensive Android security app, device manager, optimizer, and theft protection program.
It offers a variety of ways to speed up your device, including removing temp files and so on. It also looks to help patch vunerabilities and remove malware, all with a simple scan.
And that’s not all; it’s theft protection option works through letting you remotely delete info as needed if your device was lost as per the app developers.
It’s really quite simple to run a scan using the app and then fix the issues it finds. Just a few taps of a button and you are set!
I enjoyed using 360 but I did run into a few annoyances. It is worth noting that 360 Security is fairly resource intensive, at least on my Asus HD tablet. With a big cleanup, it can lag the tablet for several seconds. However, this may not be the case on more powerful devices.
Also, there is an “AppBox” page on the app where users can download a variety of games and other apps. I’m not sure why this is included, but I imagine it is a way for the developer to help fund the app. I didn’t like the little popups and the “double icons” that cluttered my main tablet window either, although once again this may have been a device issue.
Overall, 360 rocks a very impressive set of features and I was happy to use it to optimize my device.
Appearance and Layout
360 Security looks very, very sharp on Android. The developers have gone to great lengths to get the app sporting a sharp, professional layout that is still very graphically impressive to the eye. Soothing colors and excellent scanning animations are very well done and look great.
It takes a little while to get used to the multiple options available in 360 Security, but it’s not a steep learning curve. I was very happy with the graphical layout and would certainly recommend others take a look at the screenshots just to get a taste at how appealing, visually, this security app is.
360 Security offers a comprehensive approach to Android security, space management, anti-theft, and more. It’s an amazing array of options for a free app, and further helps expand the popular 360 line of software from developer Qihu.
While I do not like how many App Permissions it requires, I was impressed by the sheer scope of what is offered by this free mobile security suite. It’s worth checking out, especially if you want an all-in-one security app for your Android tablet or smartphone.
