Mobile devices and applications have come to the point where they dominate our lives. One of the most popular forms of phones, the Android, has millions of apps to download. These apps can range from games to social media apps, to T.V network apps. Some apps can even be used to better your life or make it easier, ranging from fitness and lifestyle apps to important budgeting apps like a home value calculator or monthly income planner. However, with more and more of our data being placed on our phones we are increasingly opening ourselves up to security breaches. Security breaches can result in a lot of personal information being damaged or stolen, something that can be irreparable. Thankfully there are even apps that you can use to better protect your phone from hackers, scammers, and thieves. Here are the five best security apps for Android.

Security Master

Privacy and antivirus technology are two major concerns for people with any type of electronic device. Thankfully, Security Master can put both of these concerns and more to rest. The app includes an intelligent diagnosis that can identify viruses, clean junk, and even save some of your battery usage. If you’re worried about internet security then this app can provide you with a VPN proxy or can even scan Wi-Fi networks for potential threats just to ensure that they’re safe. Finally, this app can even physically protect your phone, by sounding an alarm when it is used without your knowledge and can even take a picture of the culprit. If you’re looking for a great Android security app, then you can’t go wrong with Security Master.

AppLock

If you’re someone that’s concerned with someone breaching a specific application on your phone, then AppLock is the perfect app for you. Any app can be locked, protecting you from a wide range of embarrassing scenarios. Perhaps you don’t want people accessing your social media so you can place a locked password on your Facebook, Twitter, or Snapchat. You may also have personal messages or pictures that you don’t want others to see so you require a password to open your Messaging and Gallery apps. The app can even be useful for things outside of privacy and security. For example, if you have a child that wants to use your phone for games, you can use the app to ensure that they don’t enter any apps they’re not supposed to and don’t use a large amount of data.

Finally, the app is extremely easy to use and has a user-friendly interface, allowing you to get comfortable using the app in no time.
