    Has anyone done ressarch on whether virus or malware protection is necessRy for an android operating system? I have Norton lite installed but I was wondering whether I should upgrade to the full version to get web protection as well as malware protection?

    Hello and welcome to the Forum. It's not a bad idea to have Norton Lite installed. I use AVG and have not had a problem. If you have any additional questions we are here to help. In the meantime, enjoy your new toy

    i use antivirus free and has been okay so far. I no longer will recommend norton or mcafee to any of my customers or anyone that asks.
    Both companies took a bad direction with their products and made them bloatware and they cause more issues than the prevent. But thats my experience. Ii dont know how many small and medium businesses i install them to only to have to go back later to remove them because they were slowing things down.
    But its best to have something installed than not.

    Welcome to the forum and congrats on your new toy.

    AntiVirus/malware is the $64,000 dollar question. You will find users who swear it is wasting system resources and battery, others swear it is the way to go for cheap insurance.

    If you are concerned about it, it is not a bad idea to install it.
