Android Anti-Virus

I only use the anti-theft features to track my phone in case I manage to leave it behind, and I just disable everything that isn't related to the anti-theft. I wish android device manager had more to offer, otherwise I'd just use that.

I'm pretty sure Android Device Manager allows you to Lock, Wipe, and Ring your phone in case you lost it.

 

Plus it's part of the OS and you don't need any extra apps for that.

It does, but I enjoy having my device's location mapped every 30 minutes.

Do people actually use Android anti-virus apps? The only time I've witnessed anything close to malicious was from pirated software...

Didn't google have to remove a couple apps a year or two ago for malicious code?

I think Lookout is preinstalled on the G2 and cannot be deleted. Almost like it is its own virus..

Actually, I think quite a few of the "apps" on the G2 aren't really installed, it's more so of a shortcut to download them from the play store. As I remember clicking on a few things and it took me straight to the google play store to download it. So I removed some crap off the app menu once I discovered this, including lookout. However, some of the extra garbage is installed, and you can't remove it, like that stupid lumen toolbar. (I just decided to disable it, damn you LG!)

    • Another SCP beta is rolling out now, with some bugfixes as usual but also some fun new options to test: Non-standalone 5G-NR cells can now display Site Notes. This feature works in the same manner as how neighbor cell notes are displayed, requiring a PCI and your device's location. This option is enabled by default. As is the case with neighbor cell notes, you cannot edit NSA site notes directly unless there is an NCI being reported (which I have never seen); it uses the previously recorded standalone log entries. Like neighbor notes, if a cell has been previously logged but there is no note, you will see the distance information only.   Logging cells that are not reporting a valid PLMN is now possible. This option is disabled by default, but if you enable it along with two other options (log sites with missing GCI/NCI and to log sites with missing TAC), you should begin logging most NSA 5G-NR cells. A PCI is needed at a minimum, which is not always reported depending on your device and network factors. ("Sites" will be renamed to "cells" on the Preferences menu in the next update.)   Users can enable an option to display LTE cells above 5G-NR cells in the app if they choose to do so. This option is disabled by default. Should help improve the readability of your screen if you have NSA 5G-NR cells constantly appearing/disappearing. Please give these options a try and let me know if you notice any issues.. thanks!
    • Not yet. We probably won't see one submitted until construction on the new building is substantially complete. 
    • Yes, that is where the site used to be. All the antennas were removed. I hope they add a new site soon. Have any permits been submitted for a new site?
