ok4Bitdefender, has launched its ‘Antivirus Free’ app on the Google Android platform to combat the growth in mobile malware.

The app promises a “fast and powerful antivirus solution that taps the latest in-the-Cloud scanning technology and prevents battery strain.”

“We would like to see [Antivirus Free] as widely employed as possible, so we made it easy to use, light on the battery, and lethal to Android malware,” Bitdefender chief security researcher, Catalin Cosoi, said.

For the everyday smartphone user, the app looks basic and is simple to operate. The key feature of the plain user interface is a big ‘Scan’ button, and beneath is an indicator of whether the device is safe and a record of the last time it was scanned.
