    Question Is AntiVirus software really necessary on Android?

    Hi guys,

    I recently purchased a Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (currently with Android 4.2), and since there was a special AV software offer at the store, I bought Norton Mobile Security (it was really cheap at this store with the purchase of the tablet). My question is, is it really necessary the use of AV software on Android, or can I do without it? (I'd rather not install anything that consumes resources and makes the tablet slower, so that's why I ask).

    Thanks for your suggestions and any useful information you can give!

    Cheers.

    Thank you, twistmobile11. I'm not using any third party app at the moment (only Google Play Store apps), so think I won't install the AV.

    Cheers.
